Queens Of The Stone Age Will Soon Announce A New Album

Queens of the Stone Age

Fans cannot contain their excitement: Queens of The Stone Age will probably release a new album soon. There has been some recent activity on their social media, including a few teases and other cryptic messages, but today QOTSA tweeted “It’s our special week!” followed by emojis of a snake and a Roman temple – the title of the new album is rumored to be “In Times New Roman.” As for the snake, this seems to be a recurrent theme for the band.

A few days ago, Duff McKagan also confirmed on SiriusXM radio that the album will be released in June. How does Duff know about it you are going to ask? Well, he played bass at Iggy Pop’s recent West Coast shows, and they all hang out backstage at the Hollywood Palladium, as this photo shows. As the producer and co-writer of Iggy Pop’s 2016 “Post Pop Depression,” it’s clear that Joshua Homme is still close to the godfather of punk.

A track list (and the cover art?) of the upcoming album may have already been revealed (but at this point, nothing is certain) and, according to the internet rumor, it seems that the song “Emotion Sickness” (not the Phoebe Bridgers’ song!) is the single that will be released at the end of this week. According to MetalSucks, the album is said to have a more psychedelic sound than the band’s previous albums, but it will feature two familiar contributions: ZZ Top Legend Billy Gibbons and Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl on drums – what a surprise!

QOTSA’s last album, “Villains” was released 6 years ago, so new music is long overdue. However, these past years have been particularly difficult for frontman Joshua Homme, who has been through a nasty divorce from ex-wife Brody Dalle, and a difficult fight for the custody of his children. The story has also divided fans.

QOSTA has already announced many dates as they play several European festivals this summer, but I wouldn’t mind them adding a few dates, especially at an intimate LA venue!
