Queens of the Stone Age Preview New LP, Tour With Gritty 'The Way You Used to Do'
Mark Ronson-produced album hopes to redefine band's sound


Queens of the Stone Age detailed their new album 'Villains' and shared a devilish and danceable new song, "The Way You Used to Do."
By Jon Blistein
1 day ago
Queens of the Stone Age unveiled a grisly and jumping new song "The Way You Used to Do" from their upcoming album, Villains, out August 25th. The band has also announced a North American tour in support of the record this fall.

"The Way You Used to Do" boasts a blown out bluesy guitar riff but moves forward with a light, danceable touch as singer Josh Homme's vocals sift between a wail and delicate croon.

Villains, which marks Queens of the Stone Age's first album since 2013's ...Like Clockwork, is available to pre-order and comes with an instant download of "The Way You Used to Do." Mark Ronson produced the record with co-producer Mark Rankin and mixer Alan Moulder.

In a statement, Homme said the most important aspect of Villains was "redefining our sound, asking and answering the question, 'What do we sound like now?' If you can't make a great first record, you should just stop – but if you can make a great record but you keep making records and your sound doesn't evolve, you become a parody of that original sound."

Homme also noted the album's title isn't a political statement, but rather "a word that looks fantastic" and "a comment on the three versions of every scenario: Yours, mine and what actually happened. Everyone needs someone or something to rail against – their villain – same as it ever was. You can't control that. The only thing you can really control is when you let go."

Queens of the Stone Age have a handful of live dates scheduled for this summer, including festival dates at Outside Lands in San Francisco and Riot Fest in Chicago. They'll kick off their North American tour in support of Villains September 6th at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY and wrap October 24th at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Tickets go on sale June 2nd. More information is available via the band's website.

The group first teased Villains with a website reboot and a short, eerie clip that included footage of studio sessions and shots of potential lyric sheets. On Wednesday, the band released a longer video in which Homme is hooked up to a polygraph machine and asked various questions about Villains and album track "Feet Don't Fail Me."


After the band finished touring in support of …Like Clockwork, Homme immediately turned to an array of new projects. In 2015, he reunited with his Eagles of Death Metal cohort Jesse Hughes for Zipper Down, the band's first album since 2008, and then partnered with Iggy Pop to produce the punk stalwart's 2016 album, Post Pop Depression. Homme also co-wrote and contributed to two songs on Lady Gaga's recent record, Joanne, "Diamond Heart" and "John Wayne"

Over the past few years, other members of Queens of the Stone Age have also been involved in various projects. Guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen joined the experimental rock supergroup Gone Is Gone with members of At the Drive-In and Mastodon, while Dean Fertita recorded new records with the Dead Weather and the Kills and contributed to Post Pop Depression.

1. "Feet Don't Fail Me"

Oh I hope so!

I was looking at the collectors vinyl bundle including the jacket on pre order and it comes to $239 before taxes
And it still hasn't worked out with taxes

*cries*

I have a black leather/wool baseball jacket that I am going to customise with embroidery etc so that will have to be my cheap substitute

If they did motorcycle gang style patches that would be cool lol

holy shit, some of you actually liked the new QOTSA? is this the first time since 2002 that this happens?

I liked the new single as well. Clockwork sucked... happy Josh is over making music that makes me want to jump in front of a bus.

I think the new album will sound like TCV mashed with QOTSA circa Rated R.

I like this new clip: https://www.youtube....h?v=PoIbxAU7ZhY
