Queens of the Stone Age - Like Clockwork

Queens of the Stone Age have been teasing the particulars of their upcoming album for some time, and as of today, Antiquiet has more details about the album, which is reportedly due in June. According to Antiquiet, the album is called …Like Clockwork, and will feature a variety of guests (most of which have been previously announced), including Elton John, Trent Reznor, Dave Grohl, Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears and Mark Lanegan, as well as the, of late, legally embattled Nick Oliveri, who hasn’t performed with the band for about a decade. The band is streaming snippets of the album on their website right now, and every time you refresh, you’ll hear a new clip.

There aren’t too many other details just yet, and a tracklist has not yet been posted. However, the band has been slowly leaking cryptic messages about the album, such as: “A Stitch In Time Will Save You 9, But.. Some Things You Can’t Fix, So.. If You Find..” And the album is described as “codeine cabaret.”

…Like Clockwork will be the first new full-length from the band since 2007’s Era Vulgaris.

Update: Per Pitchfork, the album will be released via Matador Records, which along with Savages and Iceage, pretty much means it’s in the running for most badass label of 2013.
