Sorry QOTSA Fans, The Queens Are Taking a Break!

Posted on by Brandy


Remember right after “…Like Clockwork” came out, and Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme was telling us how they couldn’t wait to get back into the studio to record the next one?  Welllllll, turns out that plan has changed a little bit.


Bassist Mikey ‘Shoes’ Shuman told GigWise, “We were eager because we were in a good spot, having fun and the record had done really well. But we decided to take a break because we had been going so hard for so long, and we really worked on that record for a long time. It’s not like we’re sick of each other and don’t want to do it – it’s just better to step back for a second and come back once the world has had a little bit of a break from you.”

Hey, remember that time QOTSA came and talked to us? That was pretty cool.
