Watch QOTSA’s new video for ‘Keep Your Eyes Peeled’

Bar room brawls get spookily crafted in Queens of the Stone Age’s animated video for new song “Keep Your Eyes Peeled”. Yet another Brit is behind the amazing work in this new flick, none other than UK artist Boneface (who also designed the album cover) with animation by Liam Brazier.

We have heard the new album Like Clockwork, scheduled for a June rd release and we are stoked on it. Get ready for another killer record from these desert stoners.
