All Hellzapoppin’s about to break loose!
With their new album ‘Villains’ just a little over the horizon, Queens of the Stone Age have revealed their new video for ‘The Way You Used To Do’. And it’s a satanic dance ritual extravaganza from the mind of Josh Homme. Conceived by Josh and directed by Jonas Akerlund, the band manages to squeeze in numerous dance routines, costume changes and a variety of sets into its small frame (and it was even shot in a single day on 8th August in Los Angeles – makes you wonder how they did it!)
Speaking of the clip, Josh said: “It’s our way of paying tribute to Cab Calloway and the film Hellzapoppin’. I fully realize that may be a little more than some are open to, and that’s perfectly fine with me. There’s the door. If some of the more close-minded are gently pruned, that just leaves more room on the dance floor for the open-minded ones to get loose. That’s been the spirit of Queens Of The Stone Age and the space we’ve worked to create from day one”.
