QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE's HOMME: New Stuff 'Blows Away' 'Songs For The Deaf'

QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE have had a change of plans and are now set to enter the studio in January to begin recording their new album for a proposed spring 2004 release.

"This new stuff blows away 'Songs For The Deaf' and any other record we've made," QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE frontman Josh Homme told Rolling Stone. "It's almost like 'Deaf' was the end of something and this is a whole new level. It's more simple. It's less complicated."

So far QUEENS have twenty-five songs to choose from for their fourth, as-yet-untitled effort, including "Skin on Skin", "Everybody Knows That You're Insane" and "Tangled Up in Plaid". "It's sort of about the cad and being the life of the party, but the wrong life at the wrong party," Homme said of the track. "It's kind of about raining on the parade a little bit, you know, infiltrating to destroy."

Homme will again produce his band's new material, most of which the quintet (which now includes ex-DANZIG drummer Joey Castillo) conceived on the road. "This isn't BON JOVI: 'We've seen a million faces and rocked them all,'" Homme quipped. "There's all sorts of experiences that happen on the road that aren't like that line. We live out here, so it's our lives out here. We stopped thinking of it as we're going somewhere — this is who we are. I've been on tour for about eleven years. So I feel more like a scientist collecting data."
