QOTSA are set to release their new album
Queens Of The Stone Age have released further details of their forthcoming new album.
In a handwritten letter given to MOJO magazine, the hard rock group have elaborated on frontman Josh Homme’s former comment that the record “sounds like you’re running in a dream the whole time.”
They have added that: “These songs aren’t recollections of times we had. They are depictions of what we are going through in real time. It means even a bad event can turn into an unforgettable song. At least for us.”
The full letter reads: ‘A stitch in time will save you 9, but…There’s no way we could have prepared for the journey up the river that is this album. In our grand plan, we envisioned our lives and recordings running like clockwerk. However, the reality has been manic and unpredictable.’
It continues: “These songs aren’t recollections of times we had. They are depictions of what we are going through in real time. It means even a bad event can turn into an unforgettable song. At least for us. The record sound like running in a dream inside a codeine cabaret. I hope you understand what that means, cause we don’t. Sounds like a load of pretentions sh..! What? Gotta go, the therapist says our time is up…”.
He potentially joins other names already confirmed for recording sessions including Nine Inch Nails main man Trent Reznor and Foo Fighters singer Dave Grohl, who will play drums on the album after Joey Castillo left the band. The band’s former bassist, Nick Oliveri, has also been recording with the group again.
The album is set for release in the first half of this year.
