The Pulse of Radio reports: QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE have launched a new web site and contest to tie in with the release of the band's new single, "Make It Wit Chu". The group is hosting what it calls the first international Make Out Contest, with fans encouraged to submit videos via YouTube of couples making out to the song in the "sexiest, raunchiest and most QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE-inspired fashion." Clips from other movies and porn cannot be submitted, and all participants must be 18 or over.

Frontman Josh Homme told The Pulse of Radio he was feeling pretty amorous himself when he wrote the song. "I was a lovesick fool and, you know, sometimes the only way you can communicate with somebody is by touching one end of a phone line that touches them in a far away location, so you just, you end up writing music, you know," he said. "It actually scared the living tar out of me because, you know, I'm like a desert boy with red hair. The idea of trying to sing some kind of blue-eyed soul scares the crap out of me."
"Make It Wit Chu" is taken from the fifth QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE album, "Era Vulgaris", which was released last year.
QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE are currently on a European tour and will next head to Australia and New Zealand in March.
