Eagles of Death Metal have released a new music video for their song, “Complexity.”
In June, according to a previous article, the band announced that they would be releasing their first new album of original material in seven years. Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme, of Queens of the Stone Age – the two men who are the creative forces behind the band – have chosen to title their upcoming album, Zipper Down.
In an article that appeared over at Consequence of Sound, Hughes took a moment to reflect on the album’s overarching theme, or mantra. He said, “The new album, ZIPPER DOWN, really represents to me an attitude and philosophy of life. One should not zipper up, they should zipper down and let it all hang out.”
“‘Complexity’ is the musical equivalent of holding a lucky rabbit’s foot with the unlucky rabbit still attached,” Homme said in a recent press release, Exclaim.ca reports, while Hughes chimed in: “‘Complexity’ is sort of our way of saying, ‘Keep it simple, stupid.'”
The band has appeared to heed Hughes advice, with respect to filming for their latest video, as it features the men singing to each other, and into a camera. Additionally, the music video was shot entirely in black and white, save for a rare burst of psychedelic colors that serve as an attention getting device, as they’re contrasting to the previous black and white footage that viewers’ see in the first half of “Complexity.”
