About Queens of the Stone Age
It's been said that Queens of the Stone Age is metal for people who don't like metal. But whatever the sound, and however you choose to describe it (or enjoy it), you can't help but note this group has found a style that works.
According to Billboard, Queens of the Stone Age was 'formed from the ashes' of stoner rock icons Kyuss. Still part of its lineup today are lead singer/guitarist Josh Homme, guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen, bass guitarist Michael Shuman, keyboardist Dean Fertita, and drummer Jon Theodore. Sure, the lineup has undergone plenty of change since its original formation in 1996, but wouldn't you know that Queens of the Stone Age has seemingly thrived with its revolving door of musicians.
It's been some 16 years since the band issued its self-titled debut album, and 14 years since a sophomore effort propelled them to stardom and a spot at that year's Ozzfest. Ex-Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl then joined them for a third studio album in 2002. Not only was "Songs for the Deaf" one of the year's most anticipated hard rock albums, it was preceded by a tour that saw A Perfect Circle guitarist Van Leeuwen officially come on board and hook up with the band.
There have been plenty of ups and downs for QOTSA over the last decade, but the band resettled and began recording a new album in 2012, bringing Grohl back into the fold and also working with the likes of Mark Lanegan, Trent Reznor, Jake Shears, and Elton John, as well as Nick Oliveri. Queens of the Stone Age then signed with Matador in early 2013 and their "...Like Clockwork" album followed in June.
