Album News: Queens of the Stone Age announce new album + new song

Friday, June 16, 2017

Your faves Queens of the Stone Age are back, and are set to drop a new album! Entitled Villans, the album will feature nine tracks and features production by Mark Ronson and Mark Rankin. There are zero doubts that the album is bound for just as much success as their previous album Like Clockwork..., which was their first #1 album in Australia. The album is set to be released on 25th August.

In a statement, Josh Homme said:

“The title Villains isn’t a political statement. It has nothing to do with Trump or any of that shit. It’s simply 1) a word that looks fantastic and 2) a comment on the three versions of every scenario: yours, mine and what actually happened… Everyone needs someone or something to rail against—their villain—same as it ever was. You can’t control that. The only thing you can really control is when you let go."

To get you pumped up, they've dropped their first song from the album, 'The Way You Used To Do'. Listen to it below. 

You can catch QOTSA at the below shows when they hit Australian shores for Splendour in the Grass. Let's hope they squeeze a couple of new tracks in their set whilst they are here.
