Jesse “Boots Electric” Hughes & Joshua “Baby Duck” Homme, co-founders of American rock band EODM (Eagles Of Death Metal) have today shared a video for their new single “Complexity”.
The single which features on the band’s forthcoming new studio album ZIPPER DOWN will be released worldwide on October 2 by T-Boy/Universal Music.
The 11-track album is available for pre-order on CD, digital, vinyl LP and cassette. iTunes’ digital album pre-order unlocks an instant download of its hot lead single, “Complexity”.
“The new album, ZIPPER DOWN, really represents to me an attitude and philosophy of life” says Hughes. “One should not zipper up, they should zipper down and let it all hang out.”
Homme (AKA “Baby Duck”) says, “In an independent study, four out of three doctors say ZIPPER DOWN is an eargasm trapped inside a crazerbeam. And I believe them.”
About the album’s lead single, Homme says,” ‘Complexity’ is the musical equivalent of holding a lucky rabbit’s foot with the unlucky rabbit still attached.”
“‘Complexity’ is sort of our way of saying, ‘Keep it simple, stupid,’” adds Hughes.
For the ZIPPER DOWN sessions at Pink Duck Studios in Burbank, California, Hughes and Homme co-wrote all of the album’s songs (with the exception of their cover of Duran Duran’s “Save A Prayer”), and performed all of the instruments and vocals themselves. The album is produced by Homme.
Just when you thought it was safe to take your ladyfriends out again, Eagles of Death Metal are perched and ready to swoop in as the guys recently announced a trek across North America in August, September and October, before they head back to Europe for headlining shows in November and December, including the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Poland, Hungary, Italy and Spain.

EODM was formed in 1998 in Palm Desert, California by best friends Jesse Hughes and Joshua Homme. Despite their band name, EODM (Eagles Of Death Metal) is not a death metal band. The story goes that a friend was introducing Joshua Homme to the death metal genre, and Homme wondered what a cross between the Eagles and a death metal band would sound like. With that, EODM was born. The band released Peace Love Death Metal in 2004, followed by Death By Sexy in 2006, and Heart On in 2008.
