Villains is the first full album offering from Queens Of The Stone Age since 2013’s release ‘Like Clockwork’ which 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 and Finland. 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 25th release, ‘Villains’ is now available on deluxe vinyl, standard vinyl and CD. Produced by Mark Ronson, and written by Josh Homme, Dean Fertita, Mikey Shuman and Troy Van Leeuwan, sees Queens on classic form in a monstrous way with 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. 'Villains is brilliant. It's all the things that make QOTSA such a thrilling band condensed into a jolting, compact rock record' Q Magazine **** (four stars) 'Heroic stuff.....Homme had already done more than anyone of his generation to pump new heart into rock. Now with an unlikely ally, he's revived the soul too.'
