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.

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.

VIDEO: Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile + "Continental Breakfast" + Amoeba Hollywood In-Store Announced

This morning, we're happy to share the next take from the upcoming album from Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile, Lotta Sea Lice. The video for "Continental Breakfast" was directed by Danny Cohen (@DannyZCohen), who was also behind the lens for the "Over Everything" video released last month. This new video also spans a great distance (does not get much further than Melbourne and Philly. It's a really special video and we don't throw that world around too much. Watch and you'll see why.


Director Danny Cohen says:
'Continental Breakfast' was made while spending time with Courtney and Kurt in Melbourne and Philadelphia, it's an intimate home movie into their lives and the time spent with family and friends between recording /touring. Shot on 16mm, the mini-documentary captures honest moments that show the loving and playful nature of both Courtney and Kurt. It was such a treat to experience life with Courtney and Kurt in their natural habitats. It really left me feeling like part of the family and hopefully fans can feel that too.
