Fourteen seconds of muscular rock: that's what new supergroup Them Crooked Vultures are offering up online to give everyone who missed their live debut at Chicago's Metro on August 9th a taste of their forthcoming album. Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl, Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme and Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones posted a brief clip of the studio version of "Nobody Loves Me And Neither Do I" on their official YouTube page yesterday. The song was the last track performed by the Vultures at their Metro show, which Rolling Stone's Smoking Section proclaimed epic: "Never has a supergroup sounded more like the sum of its parts."
The official Them Crooked Vultures Website has also sprung to action, adding a message board and a spot for fans to purchase a T-shirt. Additionally, the band also launched a Google Earth app that currently — for Rock Daily at least — provides a lunar view of the Atlantic Ocean. We're not sure what's in store for the Google Earth app, but since it's linked as an "X" over at the official site, we're assuming it'll eventually give fans a destination for the band's next powerhouse concert.
Dave Grohl, who's back behind the drum kit in the Vultures, told the Smoking Section that the band would tour the U.S., as well as release an album stocked with the tracks played during the band's 75-minute Metro show. Grohl and bassist Jones, longtime friends, first had the idea to join forces for a new project, and then recruited Homme to fill out their all-star roster.
