“The title Villains isn’t a political statement. It has nothing to do with Trump or any of that shit. It’s simply 1) a word that looks fantastic and 2) a comment on the three versions of every scenario: yours, mine and what actually happened… Everyone needs someone or something to rail against their villain same as it ever was. You can’t control that. The only thing you can really control is when you let go.” – Joshua Homme
Queens Of The Stone Age reemerge from the desert with lucky seventh album, Villains, out today! Produced by Mark Ronson and co-produced by Mark Rankin and mixed by Alan Moulder, along with the stunning artwork of returning illustrator Boneface.
As Homme himself puts it, “The most important aspect of making this record was redefining our sound, asking and answering the question ‘what do we sound like now?’ If you can’t make a great first record, you should just stop—but if you can make a great record but you keep making records and your sound doesn’t evolve, you become a parody of that original sound.”
Queens Of The Stone Age is Joshua Homme, Troy Van Leeuwen, Dean Fertita, Michael Shuman and Jon Theodore.
