After a month of teasing fans by releasing bits and pieces of their new album “…Like Clockwork,” including a 15 minute video by UK artist Boneface and animator Liam Brazier, the full Queens Of The Stone Age album can finally be heard in its entirety. Fans can now stream the entire album for free on iTunes. The album will be officially released this coming Tuesday (6/4) from label Matador Records, but is currently available for preorder on CD and vinyl from Amazon, and as a digital download from iTunes. iTunes pre-orders come with an immediate download of “My God is the Sun.”
As if news of the album stream is not exciting enough, fans will be glad to hear that QOTSA are gearing up for a tour beginning in June. The tour kicks off with a run of European dates, but they will be playing dates at American festivals such as Lollapalooza, Made in America, and Austin City Limits.
