Queens Of The Stone Age could turn the animated videos created for songs on their new album '...Like Clockwork' into a feature-length film.

Sources close to the band have revealed that major Hollywood studios have approached the band and Boneface, the graphic designer who created the videos, with a view to making a movie. The producers are apparently keen to get a big-name director such as Quentin Tarantino or Tim Burton involved in the project - as well as the album's numerous guest cars, who include Dave Grohl, Elton John and Alex Turner.

The album came out on Monday (June 3) and so far Boneface has created animated videos for five of its songs: 'My God Is The Sun', 'If I Had A Tail', 'Kalopsia', 'I Appear Missing' and 'Keep Your Eyes Peeled'.

Queens Of The Stone Age recently compiled all the animated videos into a 15 minute long promo for the album, starting with the previously released clip for 'I Appear Missing' before segueing into 'Kalopsia', 'Keep Your Eyes Peeled' and 'If I Had A Tail', before finishing up with 'My God Is The Sun', which was the very first track to be revealed from the album when the band performed it live at Lollapalooza Brazil in March.

Meanwhile, Queens Of The Stone Age have been confirmed for Radio 1 Rocks week, which takes place from June 10-13. The band will perform at London's Maida Vale studios on Monday, June 10 alongside fellow guests Jimmy Eat World.

Other acts set to play live for the station over the week include Frank Turner, Enter Shikari, Fidlar, Heaven's Basement, Mallory Knox and Don Broco. Fans can win tickets to see the sessions being recorded live via the Radio 1 website.
