Endless Queens of the Stone Age Video Series Adds Fire-Starting ‘If I Had a Tail’
"THE END IS REALLY FUCKING NIGH," or so they say
Queens of the Stone Age’s latest dystopian animated video begins with the text “BURN IT ALL DOWN” and ends with “THE END IS REALLY FUCKING NIGH.” In between, the desert rockers grind through the disco-splashed brooder “If I Had a Tail” while the visuals depict a grim highway chase. The song, which QOTSA previously debuted live in Belgium, is taken from the band’s upcoming album …Like Clockwork, due out June 4 via Matador Records. The video is the fourth in a series with images by …Like Clockwork cover art designer Boneface and animation by Liam Brazier, following “I Appear Missing,” “Kalopsia,” and “Keep Your Eyes Peeled.” If it seems like QOTSA are asking you to keep your eyes peeled on a daily, if not hourly basis, well, it helps that the results continue to be worth watching.
