The expanded, remastered reissue of QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE's classic 1998 debut will be made available on CD, double vinyl LP and via digital download on May 17 via Rekords Rekords/Domin. Pre-orders for the vinyl or CD formats will receive an instantly available digital download of the full record. The reissue has been fully remastered from the original tapes and has been expanded by three tracks: "The Bronze" and "These Aren't The Droids You're Looking For" — from the 1998 split EP — and "Spiders And Vinegaroons", which was part of the posthumous KYUSS/QOTSA split EP.
QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE is commemorating the upcoming reissue with a limited series of intimate shows at which the band is playing the record in its entirety, plus B-sides and other rarities and hits from the early QUEENS catalogue up to the present. The tour kicked off March 16 in Austin Texas and will conclude in Los Angeles tonight (Wednesday, April 13), the day after which QUEENS will appear on "Conan".
