Queens Of The Stone Age Doing Animated Film?

The Pulse of Radio reports that QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE might be working on an animated film based around "Bulby", the character shaped like a light bulb that appears on the cover of the band's latest album, "Era Vulgaris", as well as some of the group's recent videos. According to Gigwise.com, the QUEENS have met with Hollywood studio execs about the project and have brought in a designer and potential director to work on it. A source said, "It's going to be the new SpongeBob SquarePants or Ren And Stimpy."

QUEENS frontman Josh Homme told The Pulse of Radio why "Bulby" and another broken light bulb character ended up on the cover of "Era Vulgaris". "The title has an accidental air of seriousness, and I think that just helps to kind of illustrate that, 'No, no, no, not that serious actually,' you know," he said. "And I also think that it kind of strikes a little bit of a balance between that '50s generation of advertising, that sort of naive generation where Drippy the Oil Drop sold Exxon Oil or Fred Flintstone sold smokes, you know, which seems really Satanic."

QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE starts a U.K. tour on Friday (November 23), but will return home to the U.S. in December for a string of pre-holiday shows.

Proceeds from a December 9 concert at the McCallum Theatre in Palm Desert, California will go to various charities and organizations, including Operation Safe House and Palm Desert High School.
