Yesterday we noted the return of Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme after he revealed that working on Nikki Lane's recent album "saved his life." Though the question of when Queens Of The Stone Age would return as a band remained… and today it looks like we've got an answer.
Queens Of The Stone Age announced vinyl reissued of their self-titled 1998 debut album (with the original artwork), 2013's …Like Clockwork, and 2017's Villains. Though if you head over to the band's website to purchase those and instead click around, you'll notice two messages at the bottom of the "Buy" and "Tour" screens. At the bottom of the "Buy" screen, there's a message that says "Breaking: Queens Of The Stone Age album launch rumored to be 'imminent,'" while the tour screen reads "Breaking: Worldwide manhunt for rock band Queens Of The Stone Age" alongside a ton of X'ed out tour dates. The band has also updated their Facebook profile picture to a new version of their logo.
Queens Of The Stone Age has played shows here and there throughout the last few years, with their last full-on tour being in 2018. The band's last album was Villains in 2017. And just in case all the information floating around has somehow not convinced you, the vinyl repress press release simply ends with "keep your eyes peeled…" So it's probably safe to say that you can start getting very excited about a new Queens Of The Stone Age record.
Oh, and you can get those vinyl reissues here.
