Queens of the Stone Age have announced their long-awaited 8th studio album, In Times New Roman... out June 16th on Matador.  In Times New Roman... is raw, at times brutal and not recommended for the faint of heart. And yet, it's perhaps the most beautiful and definitely the most rewarding album in their epic discography. Founder Joshua Homme's most acerbic lyrics to date are buoyed by the instantly identifiable QOTSA sonic signature, expanded and embellished with new and unprecedented twists in virtually every song. With In Times New Roman... we see that sometimes one needs to look beneath scars and scabs to see beauty, and sometimes the scabs and scars are the beauty. 

The first offering from In Times New Roman... is "Emotion Sickness," which wraps listeners in a warm blanket of patented QOTSA hypnotic choruses and off kilter grooves-punctuated by tinges of psychic turbulence. The past few years have been tough on everyone, and it's no secret the members of QOTSA have endured their share of heartbreak and loss. But whom amongst us hasn't dealt with a recent bout (or two) of emotion sickness? A Liam Lynch created lyric video for "Emotion Sickness" premieres tomorrow on QOTSA's YouTube channel.

In Times New Roman... was recorded and mixed at Homme's own Pink Duck (RIP), with additional recording at Shangri-La. The album was produced by Queens of the Stone Age and mixed by Mark Rankin. The album will be available across all digital platforms and on vinyl and CD on June 16th. Artwork and double LP gatefold packaging designed by long time collaborator Boneface. LP vinyl will be available globally in black, green, red, silver and blue.
