“Thursday’s Queens of the Stone Age set at Metro had the potential to be the best thing we’d see all weekend… Now I’m thinking it might have been the best thing I’ll see in 2013.”–CHICAGO NOW

“… though his band wasn’t set to kick off their Lolla performance until Friday evening, Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme had already started the party… Homme and his gang of desert-rock ruffians plowed through nearly two hours of blistering riffs and druggy singalongs… There was a smattering of entries from the group’s excellent new album …Like Clockwork, and those tracks… already sound like staples, and they were greeted as such.”–ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

“Queens of the Stone Age unleashed a stellar set of rollicking rock… included plenty of material off their superb new album, …Like Clockwork“–ROLLING STONE

“Queens of the Stone Age sprinkled its face-melting early-evening set on the Bud Light stage with newer goodies… Homme’s badass riffs incited a frenzy of headbanging… closed the set in a hail of whiplash-inducing guitars and drum solos.”–BILLBOARD

“QOTSA’s set was all about that sound, a tight, monolithic, wall of noise… people actually chanted the riff to ‘No One Knows‘ back at them like it was lyrics”–SPIN “Lollapalooza 2013: The Best Things We Saw on Friday”

Having utterly dominated Lollapalooza from an epic pre-festival club gig for an intimate handful of true believers to a blistering Friday mainstage blowout, Queens Of The Stone Age have sicced new single “I Sat By The Ocean” on radio and resumed the global campaign that will take them once more around the world before the close of 2013.

“I Sat By The Ocean” follows in the wake of of the searing “My God Is The Sun” as the latest single from  the undisputed best rock record of the year, Queens Of The Stone Age’s universally acclaimed …Like Clockwork (Matador). Produced by founder Joshua Homme and QOTSA, recorded by Mark Rankin with additional engineering by Alain Johannes and Justin Smith, at Josh’s studio, Pink Duck, in Burbank, CA, …Like Clockwork is the sixth Queens Of The Stone Age album and the band’s first U.S. #1 album. The record has also hit #1 in Australia, Ireland and Portgual, #2 in the UK, Canada, Belgium, Switzerland, Finland and New Zealand,  #3 in Holland and Austria, #4 in Denmark and top 10 in Germany, France, and Spain.

More recently, …Like Clockwork was made available in a limited edition USB drive format that sold out instantly.

As reports from Lollapalooza and the world at large continue to verify, Homme and cohorts  Troy Van Leeuwen, Dean Fertita, Michael Shuman and Jon Theodore are living up …Like Clockwork‘s rave reviews by delivering the world’s premiere live rock show nightly. No surprise then that they are continually expanding the world tour in support of …Like Clockwork. See below for dates and continue to Keep Your Eyes Peeled to http://qotsa.com/live for updates:
