Credit: Phil SmithiesThe Wombats have premiered the video for their new single, "Bee-Sting," which is streaming now via Billboard.com.

Filmed in a warehouse in London, the clip finds the British trio rocking out as different colors pop up around them. Frontman Matthew Murphy is particularly proud of the teal jacket he's wearing.

"I'd had zero sleep, there were no electric fans and I was basically sweating uncontrollably for hours on end," Murphy tells Billboard of the video shoot. "But that jacket was worth it!"

The Wombats recorded "Bee-Sting" for the upcoming deluxe version of their new album, Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life, due out November 9. The original album, released in February, spawned the single "Turn."
