It’s been four years since Queens Of The Stone Age last dropped any new music, so when news (kind of) broke last year that the band were working on new material, fans were understandably excited. Now, more than six months later, the band have released a few photos via Instagram, further indicating that something’s brewing in the QOTSA camp. The photos are blurry and pretty hard to decipher, but it looks like the beginnings of a track list, as well as a few guitars as whatnot.
2013’s …Like Clockwork was one of the band’s best releases to date, a thoughtful, introspective and powerful album that’s warranted dozens of listens in the time since. The alt legends are perhaps best known for their high-octane smashes like Feel Good Hit Of The Summer and Song For The Deaf, but …Like Clockwork saw them usher in slower tracks with more emotional range, without losing their feverish energy.
Hopefully they can continue this trend with their upcoming and hitherto unnamed album. Check out the pictures below and start packing because it’s all aboard the hype train ladies and gentlemen!
