Queens of the Stone Age Teaser
2013-03-22 by Alex Beebe | 53 Comments
Desert rock band Queens of the Stone age have recently posted a link to their facebook which
leads to a webpage with artwork of a crumbling letter "Q" with a blue dash across it, which
could possibly be a new band logo, with "June" being written bellow it.

Aside from an option to share the page to twitter and to subscribe to the band's mailing
list, it appears that whenever the link is clicked, a different brief 5 second sample of
what seems to be new music is played.

Here's the link to the webpage:

http://www.qotsa.com/

Each of the seven individual clips can be accessed and listened to via these links:

Also, there's seven different clips.

http://qotsa.com/audio/1.mp3 (then 2.mp3, 3.mp3, etc.)

7.mp3 sounds a lot like Them Crooked Vultures. If you can't tell I'm excited about this.

I would say that they were pointless but it's QOTSA so those 5 second clips were majestic

I hope the new record goes back to their early sound (it probably won't but I still hope for that). I've lost most of my interest in their music since they were inactive for half a decade.

I actually think such a long gap between records will have done a lot of good. They were going badly downhill, but a lengthy break and essentially getting their best lineup back together might have recharged the batteries.

That second clip sounds like it comes from a pretty filthy and doomy riff, which is awesome.

I enjoyed Era Vulgaris even though it was slightly different from the discography. Right now a return to straightforward rock would be great IMO, but with so many guests and expansive projects, it will probably be a really eclectic record.

It is obscenely worthless to tease 7 songs with five seconds. Why not tease one or two songs for 30 seconds?

}}is Nick back with them>?

Nick recorded vocals for one song on the album, and they're not leads. that's his entire involvement on the record.

}}It is obscenely worthless to tease 7 songs with five seconds. Why not tease one or two songs for 30 seconds?

I think they're trying to give a feel of the album without actually giving away too much material. so people get excited about it but still pining for more.

ALso, I'm stoked. been closely following the leadup to this!

Loved Era Vulgaris, and this sounds like it could very potentially just be a monster of a record. Those previews are blowing me away, a couple of them anyway
