Queens of the Stone Age

Queens Of The Stone Age will unveil their new album, …Like Clockwork, on May 23 when they’ll be part of a very special edition of NPR Music’s “First Listen Live.” The broadcast will be from QOTSA’s sold-out show at The Wiltern in Los Angeles.

UPDATE: Stream the video from this live performance here:


The “First Listen Live” show will give fans a first look at the band’s latest material. QOTSA will be hitting the stage and the screen of those of us who will tune in at 8 p.m. PT / 11 p.m. ET, which you can check out here:


Described by Homme as “an audio documentary of a manic year,” …Like Clockwork is the first all new Queens album since 2007’s Era Vulgaris, as well as the band’s debut release on Matador. … Like Clockwork was produced by Joshua Homme and QOTSA, recorded by Mark Rankin with additional engineering by Alain Johannes and Justin Smith, at Josh’s studio, Pink Duck, in Burbank, California.
