With the hype over the new Queens of the Stone Age release, "...Like Clockwork," ramping up to an all-time high after the release of the latest video single "I Appear Missing," US rockers have decided to unchain even more of the new material.
So during a recent Club 69 radio session in Belgium, the five-piece has agreed to take two of the new tracks, "I Sat by the Ocean" and "If I Had a Tail," and give them an exclusive worldwide live premiere.
Both tunes stick to simple, yet effective riffing formulas and judging by the initial fan reactions, manage to deliver what the fans have been long expecting. "I Sat by the Ocean" can be found as the second song on the new album, while "If I Had a Tail" studio version features guest appearances from Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner, Nick Oliveri and Brody Dale. You can check out both songs below.
As a follow-up to 2007's "Era Vulgaris," "...Like Clockwork" is scheduled to drop on June 4 via Matador Records as the sixth studio effort in the group's catalogue. The band has previously also launched a gloomy Likeclockwork.tv website, offering fans creepy phone calls and kicking off the pre-order period.
The new record's first single, "My God is the Sun," was streamed in its entirety during last month after an exclusive live premiere at this year's edition of Lollapalooza Brazil festival.
