Queens of the Stone Age Finish New Album

Queens of the Stone Age fans may not have to wait much longer to hear the band’s next studio album.

While the group’s been stingy with details regarding the project, they’ve made a number of rumblings about the new LP in recent weeks. Earlier this month, they teased fans with artwork depicting a shattered circular shape above the words “COMING TWENTYFIVE.” Whether that image alludes to the next album, its leadoff single or something else entirely is still unknown, but those mysteries seem likely to be solved fairly soon: on April 23, Left Front Door Records founder Arthur Dénouveaux posted an Instagram shot of the band, taken at Lurssen Mastering in Burbank, Calif., with the caption “An album just got mixed.”

Lurssen posted the shot separately, writing “Something new brewing. Queens of the Stone Age.”

While none of this means a release date is directly forthcoming, it all falls in line with information that’s been dribbling (or in some cases leaking) out of the QotSA camp for several months. A band associate predicted a new album in 2017 earlier this year, something the group seemed to confirm with studio photos posted in February. More recently, frontman Josh Homme let slip that the album would be free of guest stars, and predicted that the set’s first single will be out before they tour Australia this summer.
