QOTSA

Desert stoners Queens Of The Stone Age have released a new song today that will feature on their upcoming album ‘…Like Clockwork‘ which is set to be released June 4th on Matador Records.

New track ‘My God Is The Sun‘ is a straight up banger. No disappointment here, especially when Dave Grohl’s venomous drum steez is featured too. It’s the only way they could have returned. The overall result is another journey into the dark and dusty road that QOTSA are most famous for ruling. Why ruin history by taking a wrong turn elsewhere? It’s where they left off and it’s absolutely rocking.

The full length that is coming is said to have guest appearances from drummers Grohl, Joey Castillo and Jon Theodore plus the likes of Sir Elton John (barf), Mark Lanegan, Nick Oliveri (thankfully), Trent Reznor, Jake Shears, James Lavelle and Alex Turner from Arctic Monkeys. Let’s hope that more of the same has been recorded to tape.

Look out for them at this year’s Download Festival at Donington Park. Turn this right up and get hyped on what’s coming next.

Nick Oliveri could face 15 years in jail

Nick Oliveri is facing a possible 15 years in jail.

The Kyuss bassist, who recently had a stand-off with police in LA, has been in trouble after an argument with a former girlfriend who he prevented from leaving.

After finally giving himself up, he was charged with domestic violence and according to reports, additional charges of possession of a controlled substance with a firearm, two counts of possession of a controlled substance, and one misdemeanor count of resisting, obstructing or delaying a peace officer have been laid.

Nick Oliveri arrested

Nick Oliveri has been arrested following a standoff with Police.

The former Queens of the Stone Age bassist, who is currently a part of the Kyuss Lives tour, barricaded himself in his Los Angeles home and stayed inside for five hours. Reports say that Oliveri was arguing with his partner and refused to meet the Police when they called for him. He finally surrended and was charged on domestic violence charges before posting bail of $100,000.

Oliveri had been booted out of QOTSA after Josh Homme discovered he had been physically abusive to his then-partner.
