It’s still a matter of debate. Are Queens of The Stone Age a band; an association; a concept? Whatever came out of the irradiated California wasteland in 1996, it's evidently still around. It lives. It breathes. It can't be stopped.  

'Like Clockwork' (2013) is the first QOTSA album since 2007's 'Era Vulgaris' and, according to its founder and most identifiable constant, Josh Homme, "'Like Clockwork' was the only thing that didn't happen."  

After a lot of "personal ups and downs and a manic year,” Homme and the current iteration of the Queens — along with returning associate Dave Grohl — would decide to embrace the beast and, instead of shying away from uncomfortable or painful subject matter, face it head-on. Along the way, they picked up known associates Mark Lanegan, Nick Oliveri, Jon Theodore (now drumming full-time in the current live incarnation), along with Sir Elton John, Trent Reznor, Alex Turner and Jake Shears.  

Whatever happened-out there, in whatever desert arroyo, former meth lab, decommissioned missile silo, nuclear test site, underground laboratory, convergence of brain waves and gamma rays, QOTSA emerged with not only their best work to date, but one of the most ambitious, fully realized rock albums in recent memory.
