Eagles of Death Metal announce new album ‘Zipper Down’

The follow-up to 2008’s ‘Heart On’ will be released on 2nd October.

Eagles of Death Metal are having a busy week. Not only have the duo just played at Download Festival and announced plans for a full UK tour this October, they’ve also confirmed details of their new album, ‘Zipper Down’.

Their latest full-length is set to follow on from their 2008 effort ‘Heart On’, and will be released on 2nd October through T-Boy/UMe. It’s set to be eleven tracks in length and features the lead single, ‘Complexity’, which you can listen to below.

“The new album, ‘Zipper Down’, really represents to me an attitude and philosophy of life,” one half of the band, Jesse Hughes has said of the record. “One should not zipper up, they should zipper down and let it all hang out.”

“In an independent study,” continues the band’s other half Josh Homme, “four out of three doctors say ‘Zipper Down’ is an eargasm trapped inside a crazerbeam. And I believe them.”

The tracklisting for ‘Zipper Down’ is as follows.

1. Complexity
2. Silverlake (K.S.O.F.M.)
3. Got a Woman
4. I Love You All The Time
5. Oh Girl
