This is an absolutely incredible concert from last night at The Wiltern in Los Angeles courtesy of NPR.org. Enjoy all of the songs from …Like Clockwork (except for Fairweather Friends for some reason) along with a bunch of older tracks. The band has never sounded better:
This post features three key points that should make any Queens of the Stone Age fan happy.
1) …Like Clockwork will be released on June 3rd in the UK and June 4th in the USA.
2) The album will feature 10 tracks as follows:
1. Keep Your Eyes Peeled
2. I Sat By The Ocean
3. The Vampyre of Time and Memory
4. If I Had A Tail
5. My God Is The Sun
7. Fairweather Friends
8. Smooth Sailing
9. I Appear Missing
10. …Like Clockwork
3) Listen to the album’s first single “My God Is The Sun” below:
If you are a fan of Queens of the Stone Age, here are a few things you should know.
1) It looks like the new album is called “…Like Clockwork”
2) It will be released in June
3) If you visit www.qotsa.com, you get to hear a short audio clip of new music. Refresh again to hear another clip. After the 9th refresh “…Like Clockwork” appears.
And finally, the rumor is that Jon Theodore (formerly of the Mars Volta) will be QOTSA’s next drummer. This hasn’t been confirmed so definitely take it as just a rumor for the time being. Either way, QOTSA is scheduled to play a show in Brazil in less than a week, so we should officially know who the band’s new drummer is at that point
Either way – Queens of the Stone Age is back and that is totally awesome news!
