QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE's Bridge School set will unveil new dimensions of the "...Like Clockwork" instant classics that have been garnering the most over the top raves of Joshua Homme and crew's career, presumably alongside exclusive-to-the-evening arrangements of gems spanning the QUEENS' 15-year odyssey. As reports from the world at large continue to verify, Homme and cohorts Troy Van Leeuwen, Dean Fertita, Michael Shuman and Jon Theodore are delivering the world's premiere live rock show nightly on their continually expanding world tour in support of "...Like Clockwork".
"...Like Clockwork", sold 91,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 1 on The Billboard 200 chart. Issued on June 4 via Matador Records, the disc follows up "Era Vulgaris", which opened with 52,000 units back in June 2007 to enter the chart at No. 14. The band's 2005 offering "Lullabies to Paralyze" registered a first-week tally of nearly 97,000 copies, to debut at No. 5.
Described by Homme as "an audio documentary of a manic year," "...Like Clockwork" is the band's first full-length collection of all new material since 2007's "Era Vulgaris", as well as its debut release on new label partner Matador.
