US rockers Queens of the Stone Age just announced the release of their new album, which is called "Villains".
The band worked on the album with superstar producer Mark Ronson: an unlikely choice, given his reputation for collaborating with big-name pop acts like Adele, Bruno Mars, and Amy Winehouse. However, Ronson and QOTSA’s Josh Homme recently work together on Lady Gaga’s album "Joanne", and apparently things went well enough to have Ronson hired for the follow-up to 2013’s "…Like Clockwork".
The band revealed details of the album in a video in which Homme takes a lie detector test. The clip also offers a preview of a song called “Feet Don’t Fail Me”. Check it out below:
News of the album precedes the band’s return to the stage later this month at Canada’s Amnesia Rockfest. They’ll play shows in Australia, New Zealand, and Japan in July before returning stateside for festival slots at San Francisco’s Outside Lands Festival and Chicago’s Riot Fest.
