Queens Of The Stone Age
WebsiteQueens Of The Stone Age
An exhilarating rock band that guides the gurgle and grind of stoner metal through arty swerves, Queens Of The Stone Age has assumed a mantle shared by few of its ilk. The group’s albums have rubbed up critics and finger horn-throwers alike, treating both to heavy helpings of crusty sludge and desert rustle. Of course, before frontman and sole constant Josh Homme was a bona fide rock star, he was just a former member of blazed-and-blazing godhead Kyuss, recording snarling bits of riff-rock all by his lonesome. The results of those early sessions, QOTSA’s self-titled 1998 debut, have been repackaged in a deluxe reissue, which Homme and band will support here, playing the whole thing—plus B-sides—end-to-end.
