QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE release single 'Carnavoyeur'
QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE now release “Carnavoyeur”, the latest offering from their eighth album, “In Times New Roman…”
Watch “Carnavoyeur” below.
In contrast to its predecessor, “Carnavoyeur” finds QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE weaving more subtle shades of sinister: Mesmerizing washes of strings cascade atop the band’s trademark rock solid foundation, while Joshua Homme‘s mellifluent vocals swaddle the listener with their warm and all too familiar tones of acceptance and resignation: “When there’s nothing I can do, I smile…” While the stunning, honeyed melodies of “Carnavoyeur” are undeniably, well, really pretty, this is still QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, and there’s no shortage of viscera-rumbling drums and bass or spine-chilling guitar interplay.
“In Times New Roman…” will be available across all platforms on June 16 via Matador Records. On the eve of release fans are invited to ring in the album’s release at Midnight Club parties taking place at record shops and pubs across 23 countries. The Midnight Club starts at 11 p.m. June 15 and will feature giveaways, exclusive merch including limited edition colored vinyl, and — in a few select locations — signed merchandise and ticket giveaways. Midnight Club will provide the QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE faithful with a first chance to hear “In Times New Roman…” in its entirety, amongst friends, family and of course appropriate levels of bacchanalia.
QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE‘s last album, 2017’s “Villains”, debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart.
