Veteran U.K. rockers Squeeze have premiered a new music video, and you can check it out below. The song, "Innocence in Paradise," is from their upcoming album, The Knowledge, which will be released this Friday, October 13.

The album comes hot on the heels of 2015's Cradle to the Grave, their first studio album (of new material) since 1998's Domino.

It seems the band has truly come back to life since 2010 or so, when they issued the highly regarded Spot the Difference, which contains convincing re-recordings of 14 classic Squeeze tunes (often using the same gear they used in ancient times), followed by 2012's Live at the Fillmore, a powerful double disc that finds the band in fine form.

Anyway, the point is, Squeeze are making up for lost time. They're also making lineup changes and announcing a slew of live dates for 2017 and '18.

Back in July, the band officially added bassist Yolanda Charles (Paul Weller, Eric Clapton, Hans Zimmer) and multi-instrumentalist Steve Smith (Dirty Vegas) to the mix. The rest of the crew includes Squeeze co-founders Glenn Tilbrook (vocals, lead guitar) and Chris Difford (vocals, guitar), plus Stephen Large (keyboards) and Simon Hanson (drums). This is the lineup heard on The Knowledge.

"I’m really looking forward to chucking the jigsaw in the air to see where it all fits together with the new and old songs alike," Difford said. "I feel so grateful to have such great people in the band.”

As for those aforementioned live dates, you can check out a complete list below.
