"THE VAMPYRE OF TIME AND MEMORY"
Queens Of The Stone Age have submitted to popular demand and extended the life of the …Like Clockwork global touring juggernaut yet again.
In addition, Queens Of The Stone Age and The Creators Project, a partnership between Intel and VICE, have unveiled the interactive video for "The Vampyre Of Time And Memory." This bold production, directed by Kii Arens and Jason Trucco and designed and developed by Darknet, re-imagines the classic music video in the context of a virtual art installation distinguished by horror, weird beauty, and surrealism, and pushes the boundaries of creative expression. More than that, Joshua Homme and the band’s commanding performance is simply not to be missed.

Directors Arens and Trucco commented on co-creating the "Vampyre…" experience with the Queens: "Working on this Queens video was the ultimate artistic joyride. Joshua Homme and company gave us the creative keys to the car from word go… and Josh has a badass car. Vampyre is such a thick track… On the technology side, Darknet was the perfect forward-thinking company to push the boundaries of music video presentation. All art is technology, technology that shares an experience or an idea. Vampyre uses all the tools available to us today to share a meaningful common experience. We're so proud to be a part of the best rock album in a decade. Long live The Queens!"
In addition to the tri-level interactive video, Arens and Trucco have a offered up a Director's Cut incorporating elements of all three visual stagings: http://youtu.be/AEIVlYegHx8
