Published Aug 16, 2017Queens of the Stone Age will deliver their latest LP Villains before the end of the month, and they've continued to tease its arrival with some visuals for "The Way You Used to Do."
Described as a "fever dream Satanic dance ritual extravaganza," the new clip was directed by Jonas Akerlund — former drummer in Swedish death metal band Bathory, but also famed video director for stars like Madonna, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift and Beyoncé.
"It's our way of paying tribute to Cab Calloway and the film Hellzapoppin'. I fully realize that may be a little more than some are open to, and that's perfectly fine with me. There's the door," frontman Josh Homme said in a press release for the video. "If some of the more close-minded are gently pruned, that just leaves more room on the dance floor for the open-minded ones to get loose. That's been the spirit of Queens of the Stone Age and the space we've worked to create from day one."
It will be available as an Apple Music exclusive for 90 days, but you can check out a clip of the new video down below even if you're not a subscriber.
Villains is due out August 25 via Matador, and you can see the band's upcoming live dates here.
