RIYL: silent nights, holy infants, immaculate conception
Since their formation in 1997, Queens of the Stone Age haveÂ been anything but silent.Â Â Their concerts reachÂ voluminous levels pushing 120 dB, their lead singerÂ certainly ain’t quiet, and some of their album covers are…dare I say…titillating.Â All that aside, 21 years after their conception, Homme and the boys have finally decided to light a candle and turn the amps down.Â Ladies and gentlemen,Â if this isn’t the perfect stocking stuffer for Gram Gram, I don’t know what it is.Â I’ve read a lot of stories about Jesus and there’s no doubt in my mind that he would’ve been a massive Queens of the Stone Age fan.Â The hair, the beard, the raging parties…oh yeah.
No quantity has been announced, but don’t underestimate QOTSA fans.Â They are fast, dangerous and they have cash to burn.
Physical release: December 14, 2018
