Them Crooked Vultures Continue to Rock Europe, Plot Secret Gig

August 26th, 2009 by Daniel Kreps Leave a reply »

Them Crooked Vultures continue to randomly pop up for performances in Europe, and video from the new supergroup’s concerts continue to be Americans’ only method of hearing the band’s music (save for their post-Lollapalooza gig in Chicago that marked their live debut). Up top we have “Caligulove,” another new track from Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme, Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl and Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones. As opposed to the propulsive driving force that is “Nobody Loves Me and Neither Do I,” “Caligulove” boasts a slower, grungier sound reminiscent of Facelift-era Alice in Chains, with Jones momentarily ditching his bass to step in behind the organ.

The Vultures continue to taunt fans with possible concert venues by using the Google Earth feature on their official Website, and the latest rumors have the band opening up for the Arctic Monkeys — Homme produced the Monkeys’ new album Humbug — tonight at London’s Brixton Academy.

Them Crooked Vultures are also rumored to be playing the Reading and Leeds Festivals this weekend — in perfect casting, Homme buddies Arctic Monkeys and Eagles of Death Metal are booked for the same day at both fests — but so far nothing has been confirmed.
