Queens of the Stone Age are keeping the creepy factor way up with the release of their latest video single "I Appear Missing."
As a part of their upcoming release "...Like Clockwork," the single sees the band experimenting with both the sonic and visual aspects, ultimately delivering a gloomy, somewhat of a desolate vibe, still managing to keep the groove engaging and even hypnotizing at moments. It also revealed that the song features Dave Grohl on the drums.
Starting off with a bandaged man waking up while being plucked by a raven, the clip follows the unfortunate individual until he meets his doom during the song's finale. Although it feels like a compact piece, the song was supposedly not released in its full length, as it should actually double the current length of 3 minutes, Billboard reports.
"...Like Clockwork" is set for a June 4 release via Matador Records as the group's sixth studio effort in total. Prior to debuting the "I Appear Missing" clip, the band has kicked off an eerie Likeclockwork.tv website, offering fans creepy phone calls as a part of the new album promotion.
The previous single, "My God is the Sun," was streamed in full last month after an exclusive live concert premiere at this year's Lollapalooza Brazil festival.
