For “Vampyre of Time and Memory,” Queens of the Stone Age have crafted a surreal interactive music video that allows fans to peruse the hallways of a rather creepy mansion.
The clip–directed by Kii Arens, Jason Trucco with help from the tech company Darknet–lets fans lead the way threw the gothic house only to end up in an ever-changing grand ballroom with a very well-manicured Josh Homme and the rest of the band playing the song in dapper suits and ties.
While interacting with the clip, users can find QOTSA performing in three different settings, as well as access song lyrics and a direct link to purchase …Like Clockwork by clicking on various onscreen “Easter eggs” like the very cool poster for the band’s show at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple leads to La-La Land Posters, which is home base for the artwork of director Arens.
The elaborate clip can be accessed through its own dedicated website.
But for fans who prefer to just sit back and relax, the band has also provided a director’s cut of the video, which merges the various scenes and settings of the interactive clip into one fluid visual. (Watch below.)
