Queens of the Stone Age
have released an interactive video for their new single "The Vampyre of Time and Memory
" off their latest record "...Like Clockwork
." You can see a video with elements from the online experience below, or try the full interactive version for yourself here
The spooky online experience was designed in conjunction with the Creators Project
, an directed by Kii Arens
and Jason Trucco
. Viewers click their way through a frightening dark house, ending up in a room with the band playing the song.
Speaking about the video the directors said it was an excellent opportunity to stretch their creative muscle. "Working on this Queens video was the ultimate artistic joyride,"
said Trucco. "On the technology side, Darknet was the perfect forward-thinking company to push the boundaries of music video presentation. All art is technology, technology that shares an experience or an idea. Vampyre uses all the tools available to us today to share a meaningful common experience."
Meanwhile, the band will release an exclusive EP called "…Like Cologne
" on Spotify today.
