VIDEO: "The Way You Used To Do" (directed by Jonas Akerlund), Ellen Performance Announced

The music video for "The Way You Used To Do" is officially out worldwide today. This might be old news to you if you have an Apple Music account or are some kind of hacker where no paywalls can stop you.



Follow the band on YouTube HERE.

Buy/stream Villains HERE.

When the Jonas Akerlund-directed (and Josh Homme-dancedhisassoff) video was first released back in August, Villians had yet to be released. At this point the band has been around the world touring nonstop, and they don't have any plans to slow down. (I broke a sweat typing all the tour dates below, just imagine how they feel.)

In other news, Queens of the Stone Age will be back on television, this time appearing on Ellen on December 14th. Check your local listings for specific air times and get it on your calendar.

Courtney Barnett, Kurt Vile & The Sea Lice make their (collaborative) national TV debut tonight at 11:35 pm (eastern) on CBS' "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert". Colbert's other guests tonight are Whoopi Goldberg and Katheryn Hahn. I remain hopeful the former will be asked to confirm or deny plans for a sequel to this 1996 classic, but experienced talk show hosts know how to do their jobs without further interference.

OUT TODAY - King Krule 'The OOZ,' Tour Begins 10/21 in Washington D.C.

You've heard "Czech One," "Dum Surfer," and "Half Man Half Shark" and now the day has come for the rest of the album to be heard, 16 more songs to be exact. King Krule's new album The OOZ (released on True Panther Sounds in the US and XL Recordings in the UK) is coming with a pretty meaty tour, much of which is SOLD OUT.

Those who tuned into Archy's Beats 1 pop-up show yesterday  (broadcasted from his home in South London) heard many new songs, an unreleased demo titled "Swan Lake" as well as “Fraternize” by a band called Uh Oh Chongo, whose members included his mother and his uncle. Listen to that episode HERE.
