Watch: Queens of The Stone Age’s ‘Kalopsia’ Video is a Nightmare Murder Spree

Take a walk with a murderous monster in a clown mask in the latest video/song debut from Queens of The Stone Age!

The latest installment of haunting, nightmarishly awesome visuals have arrived from Queens of The Stone Age, and with it even more new music from the band's forthcoming album …Like Clockwork (June 4 on Matador).

Watch the video for the track Kalopsia, which is described as "a condition where things appear more beautiful than they are." The song features Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails and How To Destroy Angels, and kicks some serious ass. The visuals depict a murderous monster in a clown mask on a midnight stroll, breaking glass and liquefying people. Then, when he takes his mask off… well you'll just have to see for yourself. It's awesome. Watch it below or right here, where a previous visual-laden clip for "I Appear Missing" awaits as well. 

In our review of …Like Clockwork, I explained that the contributors on the album is more a gathering of threads weaving through a tapestry, rather than ropes of highlighted selling-point rock embroidery. When a new voice rises from the collective, before an impact of presence can be established they step back into the mix, joining the chorus of the great pirate ship once more. You’ll give yourself whiplash turning to the speaker when Trent Reznor’s voice rips through the bass-driven fabric on "Kalopsia," but before you can lock in he’s gone.
