QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE
Unveil new song ‘The Evil Has Landed’
New album Villains out Friday 25 August
Queens Of The Stone Age today unveil ‘The Evil Has Landed’, premiered by Zane Lowe as his World Record on Beats 1, the second track to be released from their eagerly anticipated album Villains out Friday 25 August via Matador Records / Remote Control.
Produced by Mark Ronson, and written by Josh Homme, Dean Fertita, Mikey Shuman and Troy Van Leeuwan, ‘The Evil Has Landed’ sees Queens on classic form in a monstrous six and a half minute epic. Melding fuzzed out melodic guitars, trademark falsetto vocals, and lyrics of hedonistic abandon, the tracks’ grinding groove giving way to a gloriously full blown boogie.
Produced by Mark Ronson and co-produced by Mark Rankin and mixed by Alan Moulder, Villains is the first full album offering from Queens Of The Stone Age since 2013’s …Like Clockwork gave the band its first #1 album in the U.S. (and #1s in Australia, Belgium, Ireland, Portugal, Scotland, #2s in the UK, Canada, Switzerland, Norway, New Zealand, Finland… but really, who’s counting?).
Like the stunning artwork of returning illustrator Boneface, the sonic signatures of the lineup that took …Like Clockwork around the world and back—Founder/guitarist/vocalist/lyricist Joshua Homme, Troy Van Leeuwen (guitar, keys), Michael Shuman (bass), Dean Fertita (keys, guitar), Jon Theodore(drums)—are as unmistakable as ever, though coexisting with sufficient new twists to induce recurring double takes.
Already garnering a wealth of critical acclaim ahead of its August 25 release, Villains is now available for preorder on deluxe vinyl, standard vinyl, CD and digital (all formats include an instant download of first single ‘The Way You Used To Do’).
