Eagles of Death Metal Return with New Single, Global Tour Dates

Eagles of Death Metal Return with New Single, Global Tour Dates
Queens of the Stone Age leader Josh Homme has re-teamed with on-again-off-again writing partner Jesse Hughes to produce another LP as Eagles of Death Metal. Details are slim on the band's forthcoming Zipper Down, but they're teasing the set with a new scorching single called "Complexity."

The song features the kind of filthy and fun rock sounds we'd grown accustomed to from the duo, with a cone-blowing fuzz bass handling the hard-sway rhythm beneath bendy leads and boogie woogie piano. Hughes, meanwhile, croons about the pros of leading a simple life without complexity. This apparently means keeping a drawer full of clean undies and stocking up on bubblegum, among other things.

"'Complexity' is the musical equivalent of holding a lucky rabbit's foot with the unlucky rabbit still attached," Homme said in a statement, with Hughes adding, "'Complexity' is sort of our way of saying, 'Keep it simple, stupid.'"

While it's unclear exactly when Eagles of Death Metal will release their Zipper Down, their first full-length since 2008's Heart On, the band have a hefty global schedule keeping them busy between June and December. This includes Canadian stops in Vancouver and Winnipeg this September, along with their previously announced appearance at Riot Fest Toronto.
