Queens Of The Stone Age Announce First Show In Two Years

Queens Of The Stone Age already made headlines for non-musical reasons in 2017 thanks to their eloquent critique of Donald Trump. Now they’re back to their usual mode of noise-making, having announced their first gig of the year (and their first since playing Brazil’s Rock In Rio festival back in September 2015). They’ll play Japan’s Fuji Rock fest as part of an impressive slate of headliners including Aphex Twin, Björk, LCD Soundsystem, Lorde, Major Lazer, and the xx. The festival goes down 7/28-30 at Naeba Ski Resort in Yuzawa. Check out the full lineup on the poster above.

I guess this return to the stage means last year’s studio work will probably manifest into a new QOTSA album sometime this year? We’ve been anticipating as much.
