Queens Of The Stone Age Trail In Times New Roman With Emotion Sickness

Josh Homme-fronted desert rockers Queens Of The Stone Age have announced their long-awaited 8th studio album, In Times New Roman, which drops on 16th June. The news follows the California-based rockers announcing dates for the summer across the U.S. and Europe, including three U.K. stops in Halifax, Margate and Cardiff next month as well as a number of stops across the European festival circuit.

The album was produced by Queens Of The Stone Age and mixed by Mark Rankin, and the group describe the album as “the sound of a band creating the music its own members want to hear, while giving the rest of us a sonic forum in which to congregate”. Check out the video for Emotion Sickness, the first taste of new QOTSA since 2017’s The Evil Has Landed from seventh L.P. Villains below:

Mysteriously, when this year’s Glastonbury Festival main line-up was released on 3rd March, Queens Of The Stone Age were listed in a draft and on the festival’s website before being quickly removed. Might they have been booked for a later announcement? Seems likely given they’ll be in the U.K. and playing shows around the time of the world-renowned festival! Watch this space …

Queens Of The Stone have had a constantly shifting line-up over the years, aside from the group’s frontman and are currently completed with Troy Van Leeuwen & Dean Fertita on guitars, Michael Shuman on bass, and former Mars Volta man Jon Theodore on drums.
