Eagles of Death Metal Share New Song ‘Complexity’ + Crazy Sci-Fi Cover Art
Eagles of Death Metal -- the party-rock collaboration between Jesse Hughes and Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme -- shared a new song today (June 16) called "Complexity" along with some seriously spaced-out artwork for the new single.
"Complexity" precedes the release of the band's forthcoming full length, Zipper Down, which has no set release day yet. The music isn't much of a departure from the band's previous two full-length releases – it features garage boogie driven by piano and guitar on the order of Little Richard and Bob Seger topped with fuzzed-out overdrive that recalls Homme's other band. "It don't take nothing fancy/ It's just A-B-Cs," sings Hughes. "It's so easy / Without complexity."
The cover art, on the other hand, is significantly over the top -- it's a melange of pop culture sci-fi references including Hughes and Homme in knockoff Star Trek uniforms, Space Invader space ships blasting in the background and Area 51 aliens firing phasers.
