About this new Queens of the Stone Age jam, “I Appear Missing,” about the best I can say for it is that it’s a new Queens of a Stone Age jam. I’m racking my brain here, and I can’t remember the last time a ballad heightened my anticipation for a new release by a hard rock band. Racking…Racking…Racking…and I’ve got nothing. If you wanna get stoked about the new album, your best bet is to go back and replay the first single, “My God is the Sun.”

The video, on the other hand, is something else, and by something else, I mean creeptastic. The animated video is based on the album’s artwork put together by UK artist, Boneface, and animated Liam Brazier, and is something I will want to come back to when I’m not distracted by a day job.  Like Clockwork, the new album by Queens of the Stone Age, will be released June 4th on Matador Records. Many pre-order options are available.
