RIYL: Eagles of Death Metal, Them Crooked Vultures, Kyuss
Label: Matador Records
Palm Desert’s most beloved Rock and Roll 5-piece Queens of the Stone Age are back with THE OCHO. ¬†Titled Villains, this marks Josh Homme and the boys’ first record in 4 years since the critically-praised …Like Clockwork hit shelves and simultaneously destroyed eardrums. ¬†Since forming in 1997, Queens of the Stone Age have elbowed their way to the front lines of the hard rock landscape, paving the way for a lexicon of hard-working stoner metal bands all over the globe. ¬†Welcome back, gentlemen.
Merge Records has a deluxe and an indie store variant to choose from after the ‘buy’ link. ¬†Chances are good that your local record stores will have some of the ‘indie exclusive’ versions, but we’re unsure of the quantities. ¬†If you dig that heavyweight wax hitting your turntable, consider shelling out a few more bucks for the deluxe version. ¬†It’ll run you $37.49, but you’ll also get a set of 14 art prints designed by Boneface and an alternate vinyl etching on side 4.
One lucky customer ordering a Deluxe LP off the Matador webstore will receive a golden ticket inside their copy, awarding you a pair of free tickets to the headline show of your choice. *
All LP purchasers will receive an exclusive sticker sheet, featuring artwork designed by Boneface.
Deluxe LP comes pressed on heavyweight 180gram vinyl at Pallas and includes 14 limited-edition Boneface art prints, an alternate etching on side 4 of the vinyl and includes an MP3 and FLAC download coupon.
Standard and Indie LP are pressed on 140 gram vinyl with an etching on side 4 of the vinyl and includes an MP3 and FLAC download coupon. The Indie LP will feature alternate cover art from the original.
