‘A Tingly Feeling That I Just Don’t Want To End’ – Queens Of The Stone Age Are Recording?!

So. Apparently Queen of the Stone Age drummer / all around badass Joey Castillo has let slip a few things to an interviewer for a German drum magazine regarding their new record.

Check it – Antiquiet covered this a few weeks ago.  I heard they were back in the studio, recording, but I guess actions both legal and litigatory have pushed all that back somewhat.

Anyway, the tl;dr version of Antiquiet’s article – which is, itself, a tl;dr of Drumhead’s article –

1. Queens’ new record should be out this summer.

2. It’s apparently (maybe) going to be called ‘Ultraviolet Robot?’

3. Apparently they’re going back to the sound of their early days for this one.

While I welcome a return to the sound of their self-titled and Rated R records–as opposed to the kind of contrived weirdness of their last studio record, Era Vulgaris–I’ll take this all with a grain of salt.

You see, Queens are notorious for dealing with the media in a less than serious manner. If you don’t believe me, check out Josh Homme and Troy Van Leeuwen did with the NME right around when their last record–the aforementioned weird one–came out.

Quote of the day? “We’re like the return of dead-arm. We’re not the getting of dead-arm. We’re what it feels like to be alive again.”
