Queens of the Stone Age Reveal Unnerving Animated Video for New Track ‘I Appear Missing’
Rock giants Queens of the Stone Age have just unleashed an awesome new song, ‘I Appear Missing,’ along with an unsettling animated video for the tune.
Queens of the Stone Age have already released the track ‘My God is the Sun‘ from their upcoming sixth studio album, ‘…Like Clockwork,’ but ‘I Appear Missing’ is the first video offering from the act’s new record. The vampiric album art for the band’s next full-length is put into even greater perspective when aligned with ‘I Appear Missing,’ as the song fits a troubling and unfamiliar skin.
Fans of Queens of the Stone Age’s more experimental material will absolutely devour ‘I Appear Missing.’ The three-minute piece is ravenously addictive, and somehow, just like ‘My God is the Sun,’ delivers the mental image of a grandfather clock pendulum ticking back and forth. Frontman Josh Homme does a phenomenal job adding a sweet, yet unnerving vocal performance to the new QOTSA track, complementing the piece’s dreamlike instrumental backdrop.
A bandaged and bloody man is found on his back in the desert as the ‘I Appear Missing’ animated video begins, with the words ‘Wake Up’ written in blood on his chest. He becomes conscious to find his body being picked at by a hungry raven before floating all the way back to a cityscape and meeting the story’s conclusion.
Stop what you’re doing and check out ‘I Appear Missing’ by Queens of the Stone Age, as it is truly one of this year’s most essential rock songs.
