We knew Josh Homme and Trent Reznor loved working together as musicians and friends- Trent was originally slated to produce the new Queens album …Like Clockwork until scheduling conflicts came up. It looks like Trent’s unique experimentation with digital music distribution might have worn off on Josh a little bit. Either that or Josh really just wanted to make the world’s coolest bottle opener. Queens of the Stone Age are offering their killer new album …Like Clockwork on USB drives that also double as a bottle opener. Pretty damn cool way to open a beer and enjoy some tunes. Watch the infomercial for the USB drives here and maybe even place an order or three.
Ricky Chism (Fred Armisen from Saturday Night Live) breaks down everything you need to know and don’t need to know about the latest in music technology. Check him out as he dances to the tunes of …Like Clockwork. The USB stick contains 8 GB of storage, the full album with extras including the music videos and a lyrics sheet, and of course double as a bottle opener. Cheers to Queens for figuring out fun and hilarious ways to get the new album in your hands.
By the way, how many domain names has the band bought to release this record? Between the hundreds of domains it seemed like Trent bought to market his concept album Year Zero in 2007 and Queens’ use of domain names to market this album, looks like you’ll have to buy domain names off of Trent and Josh in the near future.
Have fun with this, because you know Queens of the Stone Age are.
