The band’s latest, “… Like Clockwork” was released last week on Matador. People seem to like it. Dave Grohl plays drums on it. Nick Oliveri played on it. Uh, Elton John played on it, and said the band “made the best rock album in five years.”

Check out the lead single “My God is the Sun” after the jump and see if you agree with Sir Elton.
