Eagles of Death Metal announce new album, ZIPPER DOWN, plus world tour

on June 17, 2015, 11:20am

Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme and collaborative partner Jesse Hughes just yesterday revealed the first new Eagles of Death Metal song in seven years, “Complexity”. Now, they’ve detailed the album of which the single comes from, ZIPPER DOWN, due October 2nd via T-Boy/UME.

That’s the absolutely insane rock-‘n’-roll cover above. The 11-track follow-up to 2008’s Heart On includes “Complexity” as well as a cover of Duran Duran’s “Save a Prayer”.

In a statement, Homme said of the new LP’s sound, “In an independent study, four out of three doctors say ZIPPER DOWN is an eargasm trapped inside a crazerbeam. And I believe them.”

Hughes, meanwhile, reflected on the record’s mantra: “The new album, ZIPPER DOWN, really represents to me an attitude and philosophy of life. One should not zipper up, they should zipper down and let it all hang out.”
