Prepare Yourselves for Star Trek–Themed Sex Rock

Some musicians go out of their way trying to prove themselves as eclectic, highly versatile artists capable of evolving over the course of many releases, like the Beatles, David Bowie, Madonna, and Radiohead. Warp 11 is very much the opposite — a band intensely focused on doing exactly one thing, over and over and over again. The Sacramento-based quartet is a self-described "intergalactic sci-fi super-band" who exclusively write and perform sexually suggestive rock-and-roll songs about Star Trek, and have actually recorded five albums of sleazy Trek jams including gems like "Boldly Go Down On Me," "Kirk Gets Laid Again," and "Everything I Do (I Do With William Shatner)." Their latest album, I Don't Want to Go to Heaven as Long as They Have Vulcans in Hell, is due out next month, but after the jump, you can check out a homemade trailer for the record featuring a sampling of new songs, and a pudgy guy in a Spock mask chilling out in a Jacuzzi. Hey, you can't say we didn't warn you.
