Hear Queens of the Stone Age Debut Crunching ‘Keep Your Eyes Peeled’ Live
Third new song from last week's Belgian gig
Another new Queens of the Stone Age song has surfaced from the band’s performance last week at Belgian venue Club 69. As QOTSAarchive points out (via Antiquiet), a stream of …Like Clockwork opener “Keep Your Eyes Peeled” is online, and it’s a furious, midtempo churner with a refrain that could serve as a riposte to the title of Beyoncé’s recent HBO special, Life Is But a Dream: “If life is but a dream, then wake me up,” Josh Homme roars. The recording joins the show’s excellent debuts of the more subdued “If I Had a Tail” and charging, falsetto-teasing “I Sat by the Ocean.” Also last week came the band’s creepy “I Appear Missing” video.
QOTSA’s first album in five years is due out on June 4 via Matador Records. Elton John, Trent Reznor, Alex Turner, and Brody Dalle are all on board as collaborators, along with recent SPIN cover star Dave Grohl.
