Zipper Down is due out Oct. 2 via T-Boy/Ume                    

Jesse Hughes (aka Boots Electric) says the LP “really represents to me an attitude and philosophy of life,” Jesse Hughes says. “One should not zipper up, they should zipper down and let it all hang out.”

Joshua Homme (aka Baby Duck) adds, “In an independent study, four out of three doctors say Zipper Down is an eargasm trapped inside a crazerbeam. And I believe them.”  

Preorders of Zipper Down come with an instant download of the single “Complexity,” which Homme says “is the musical equivalent of holding a lucky rabbit’s foot with the unlucky rabbit still attached.” Check out the tune below.
