Queens of the Stone Age Announce New Album
In Times New Roman… comes out June 16th
Queens of the Stone Age have announced their long-awaited eighth studio album, In Times New Roman…, will come out June 16th on Matador Records.
The 10-track LP is said to be the band’s most visceral work in years.
“In Times New Roman… is raw, at times brutal and not recommended for the faint of heart,” promises the press release revealing the album’s existence. “And yet, it’s perhaps the most beautiful and definitely the most rewarding album in their epic discography. Founder Joshua Homme’s most acerbic lyrics to date are buoyed by the instantly identifiable QOTSA sonic signature, expanded and embellished with new and unprecedented twists in virtually every song. With In Times New Roman… we see that sometimes one needs to look beneath scars and scabs to see beauty, and sometimes the scabs and scars are the beauty.”
QOTSA, comprised of Josh Homme, Troy Van Leeuwen, Dean Fertita, Michael Shuman and Jon Theodore, recorded and mixed In Times New Roman… at Homme’s own Pink Duck (RIP), with additional recording at Shangri-La. The album was produced by the band and mixed by Mark Rankin.
