Queens of the Stone Age are one of the most underrated bands ever. I think. Same goes for Them Crooked Vultures. I love both projects. In fact, I love most of what Josh Homme has done. He’s like this generation’s Mike Patton. I wish he’d start a band with Patton. That would rule. Patton and King Diamond. Make it happen, fellas.
Anyways, Rolling Stone spoke to Homme not too long ago, and he is reviving his Rekords Rekords label thanks to the backing of Dangerbird, and has a bunch of stuff coming out soon. “Our slogan is ‘Where the “Shit” Hits the Fan’ — with the ‘shit’ in quotes,” Homme says.
Homme also spoke about the upcoming tenth anniversary reissue of Rated R, and the next QOTSA LP.
Queens is playing a couple of European festival dates this summer but after that, its right to work on the record, which could be out next spring. “I have ideas already absolutely,” Homme tells RS. “It’s all about wiggling hips. The music is gonna go further down that strange and lovely path of Era Vulgaris.”
