Queens of the Stone Age

Joel Voorman

Known for their distinctive sound, Queens of the Stone Age incorporates elements of rock, alternative rock, stoner rock, and desert rock into their music. Their style is characterized by heavy, riff-driven guitar work, grooves, and dark, introspective lyrics. The band’s music often combines a raw, energetic sound with a more melodic and atmospheric approach.

Queens of the Stone Age gained mainstream recognition with their third studio album, “Songs for the Deaf” (2002). The album featured the hit singles “No One Knows” and “Go with the Flow” and received critical acclaim for its innovative blend of hard rock and alternative rock. It remains one of their most successful and beloved albums to date.

The band has released several other well-received albums, including “Rated R” (2000), “Lullabies to Paralyze” (2005), and “…Like Clockwork” (2013). Their music has consistently evolved over the years, incorporating new elements while retaining their signature sound. Their songs often explore themes of darkness, isolation, and introspection, delivered through Josh Homme’s distinctive vocals and the band’s tight musicianship.

Queens of the Stone Age have announced their long-awaited 8th studio album, In Times New Roman (OUT NOW!)

The first offering from In Times New Roman… is “Emotion Sickness,” which wraps listeners in a warm blanket of patented QOTSA hypnotic choruses and off kilter grooves—punctuated by tinges of psychic turbulence. The past few years have been tough on everyone, and it’s no secret the members of QOTSA have endured their share of heartbreak and loss. But whom amongst us hasn’t dealt with a recent bout (or two) of emotion sickness? In Times New Roman… was recorded and mixed at Homme’s own Pink Duck (RIP), with additional recording at Shangri-La. The album was produced by Queens of the Stone Age and mixed by Mark Rankin
