Eagles of Death Metal Release New Song ‘Complexity’

Eagles of Death Metal Release New Song ‘Complexity’: John Homme marks return to side project with new track ‘Complexity’.

Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme surprised Eagles of Death Metal fans by popping up onstage at a gig in Paris last week. And now his return to his side project is complete: today the group premiered a new track Complexity off their forthcoming album Zipper Down with an album cover featuring the band in Star Trek inspired outfits:


Homme describes the new track as “the musical equivalent of holding a lucky rabbit’s foot with the unlucky rabbit still attached.” You can check out Complexity below when it premieres on Vevo June 17th or at Pitchfork which is debuting it today.

The track features the classic EODM sound, a little bit of rockabilly, some 60’s garage and 70’s glam all wrapped in sugary hooks and over the top vocals. This will make the second incarnation of the track, which originally appeared on Hughes’ Boots Electric project from the album Honky Kong.

Hommes founded Eagles of Death Metal with vocalist/guitarist Hughes back in 1998, but his involvement with the band had waned in recent years due to his commitments to QOTSA and supergroup trio Them Crooked Vultures. This will be the group’s first album since 2008’s Heart On.
