still from "I Appear Missing" video

As mentioned, Queens of the Stone Age are releasing a new album, ...Like Clockwork, which is due out June 4 via Matador. They already released the first single, "My God Is The Sun," and now they've given us another... well half of it at least. A 30-second teaser for QOTSA track "I Appear Missing" aired on Adult Swim last night (5/5), and now the band have released a three-minute video for the track, but the album version is reportedly a six-minute song. You can watch the three-minute video below.

QOTSA will be playing some festivals this year like Philly's Made In America and Chicago's Lollapalooza.

Speaking of Adult Swim, they just released the free Garage Swim compilation, which features new music from Thee Oh Sees, King Tuff & Gap Dream, Jeff the Brotherhood, Black Lips, Mikal Cronin, King Khan and the Gris Gris, Mind Spiders, OBN IIIs, Weekend, Cheap Time, Bass Drum of Death, and more. You can download it for free HERE and stream the entire thing below.

We just posted pictures of King Khan at Austin Psych Fest. Weekend will return to NYC soon on their tour with No Joy. And Cheap Time will play NYC soon on their tour with Social Distortion.

More like an album deep cut, not good enough as a single.

I'm loving this track as well as My God Is The Sun. I don't see where the backlash is coming from My God Is The Sun? Sure it's not the insta=anthem that No One Knows or Little Sister were but it rules. This band isn't really about just pumping out radio singles. Since the first time I heard Regular John I've known this band knows how to hit that perfect balance between catchy rock and left field, do whatever we want with each song type of experimentation. I can't wait to hear the rest of this record.

judging by this song, the new album is going to be a perfect, intertwined end product of all 5 previous albums.

the raw, robotic grooves from their Self-Titled

the melodic, yet abstract orchestration from Rated R

the sheer heaviness and huge sounds from Songs For The Deaf

the perfectly structured and timelessly catchy riffs from Lullabies To Paralyze

and of course the dark and twisted, disturbing beauty from Era Vulgaris .

QOTSA has always been and will always be my favourite band .

so excited

I have listened to a LOT of music and I don't think I'll ever find another song so perfectly written and astonishing as this. The greatest song ever written imo.
