Queens of the Stone Age Unveil Interactive Video for ‘The Vampyre of Time and Memory’
In 2013, Queens of the Stone Age have released a staggering amount of material, both sonically and visually. This year will be remembered as one of the band’s best and most productive, but QOTSA aren’t finished yet. Just revealed from Queens of the Stone Age is a unique, interactive music video for ‘The Vampyre of Time and Memory’ that feels like a walk through Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion.
Queens of the Stone Age released the acclaimed ‘…Like Clockwork’ this year, which fans have been eating up. QOTSA ramped up the excitement for ‘…Like Clockwork’ with a series of animated music videos, which racked up millions of YouTube views in a flash. To close out 2013, the band has issued yet another visual offering for ‘The Vampyre of Time and Memory’ unlike anything you’ve seen before from the group.
Launched at VampyreOfTimeAndMemory.com, fans begin their interactive experience with venus fly traps hovering above the video’s ‘Start’ button. A menacing maid greets you at first, teasing the direction of a room where Queens of the Stone Age are performing for an audience of you. Fans make their way into the room by clicking certain parts of the screen where the website’s unique pointer turns red. After finding your destination, users have the freedom to look around freely, finding surprises at every turn while ‘The Vampyre of Time and Memory’ plays. The unnerving video is a must-experience for any follower of Queens of the Stone Age.
In other news, the band has booked a handful of 2014 U.S. tour dates, which you can view below. Also, QOTSA have hopped aboard the ‘Ugly Christmas Sweater’ bandwagon, offering a sweater featuring some good ol’ fashioned reindeer humping. To buy your very own QOTSA sweater, click here.
