Fingers crossed that they keep their word.
a 5 second clip of gang vocals
If you refresh the page there's about 3 different clips, but hey I'll take whatever I can get, I've been waiting 6 years for this lol.
well consider me teased. can't wait for this album.
Ah, you swift bastard. I just submitted a similar article
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
Thanks so much nbmatt, I'll add the links to each clip into the article pronto.
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.
Digging: Yawning Man - Historical Graffiti
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.
OH MY GOD EVERYONE GET OUT OF MY FUCKING WAY HOLY SHIT
Digging: Fluke - Puppy
FUCK YES JOSH HOMME IS GOD
#7 and #2 sound really groovy. I think this album will be better than Era Vulagris but worse than Songs for the Deaf and S/T
Clip 6 is pretty cool sounding.
FUCK YES JOSH HOMME IS GOD (2)
holy shit! i know those are small clips but they are funky and just got me so pumped for this
Oh my God these clips sound fucking brilliant
I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS FUCKING RECORD!
So excited holy shit
Digging: Frank Ocean - Blonde
Lame fucking teasers all the time
is Nick back with them>?
It better not suck.
Those 5 second clips didn't really do much for me (how could they?), but I'm super stoked for this album.
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.

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!
Man, this sounds cool. Looking forward to it.
lol bloc, getting his 4.5 ready so hard
Everything except clip 2, 6 & 7 were Quick and to the Pointless.
A few of these samples were promising, good to see them back would have been sad to finish a badass band with era vulgaris
oooooh I see what u did thar.
era vulgaris is still pretty good though
My body just rattled with the force of a thousand orgasms.
"#7 and #2 sound really groovy. I think this album will be better than Era Vulagris but worse than Songs for the Deaf and
Really? just heard in total of over 30 seconds new material and you can say that?
people are stupid yes
But hey... can't f*cking wait! 6 years people!
lol bloc, getting his 4.5 ready so hard
u dum? A 5.
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
Those snippets sound badass. Especially the 5th one posted here. Can't wait.
"lol bloc, getting his 4.5 ready so hard

queens fans represent
Era vulgaris was good...but I feel something incredible coming along
PRODUCTION SOUNDS WEIRD
so excited for this
Was that a Mark Lanegan grunt at the end of 6? Might be?
Mastodons of the Stone Age
They are all out takes......... ;)
Why is this on the most viewed news list a year later?...
That's how amazing the new album was
Lol, I guess so
