"The new album, 'Zipper Down,' really represents to me an attitude and philosophy of life. One should not zipper up, they should zipper down and let it all hang out." - Jesse Hughes
Dream Boys - Jesse "Boots Electric" Hughes and Josh "Baby Duck" Homme - aka Eagles Of Death Metal return with their hotly anticipated new album, 'Zipper Down!'
"In an independent study, four out of three doctors say ZIPPER DOWN is an eargasm trapped inside a crazerbeam. And I believe them." - Joshua Homme
For the 'Zipper Down' sessions at Pink Duck Studios in Burbank, California, Hughes and Homme co-wrote all of the album's songs (with the exception of their cover of Duran Duran's "Save A Prayer"), and performed all of the instruments and vocals themselves. The album is produced by Homme.
About the album's lead single, Homme says, "'Complexity' is the musical equivalent of holding a lucky rabbit's foot with the unlucky rabbit still attached."
"'Complexity' is sort of our way of saying, 'Keep it simple, stupid,'" adds Hughes.
EODM was formed in 1998 in Palm Desert, California by best friends Jesse Hughes and Joshua Homme. Despite their band name, EODM (Eagles Of Death Metal) is not a death metal band. The story goes that a friend was introducing Joshua Homme to the death metal genre, and Homme wondered what a cross between the Eagles and a death metal band would sound like. With that, EODM was born. The band released Peace Love Death Metal in 2004, followed by Death By Sexy in 2006, and Heart On in 2008.
