Queens Of The Stone Age Announces Vinyl Reissue of Debut Album with Bonus Tracks

Fans of Queens of the Stone Age have a reason to celebrate as the band has revealed plans to reissue their groundbreaking 1998 self-titled debut album. Scheduled for release on June 21, this special edition will be available as a double LP vinyl featuring a meticulously arranged tracklist in the sequence originally intended by the band.

The reissue not only revisits the classic tracks that first introduced Queens of the Stone Age to the world but also includes several bonus tracks, enhancing the collector’s appeal. Noteworthy among these are ‘The Bronze’, ‘Those Aren’t The Droids You’re Looking For’, and ‘Spiders and Vinegaroons’, enriching the album’s lore and providing fans with more of the band’s early sound.

Adding to the nostalgia, the reissue retains the original album cover artwork by Frank Kozik, capturing the quintessential late ’90s vibe that many fans cherish. For those eager to secure their copy, pre-orders are already open.

The album’s side-by-side layout highlights its rich composition, starting with hits like ‘Regular John’ and ‘Avon’, and culminating in ‘I Was A Teenage Hand Model’. This structure not only gives each track the space to breathe but also takes listeners on an auditory journey through the early days of Queens of the Stone Age.

In addition to this exciting release, the band is gearing up to headline this year’s Download Festival, taking place at Donington Park from June 14-16. They will be joined by other big names such as Avenged Sevenfold and Fall Out Boy. The festival promises to be a significant event, with Queens of the Stone Age ready to deliver a memorable performance.

Frontman Josh Homme expressed his views on performing at such renowned venues, emphasizing the band’s dynamic approach to live shows. “You always have to give it your all and changing it every night is what we’re about, so it’s always going to be something different,” Homme said in a recent interview with NME. Dean Fertita, the guitarist, echoed this sentiment, highlighting the spontaneous nature of their performances.

With their typical flair for connecting with the audience and a setlist that promises surprises, Queens of the Stone Age’s appearance at Download is not just a performance, but an event promising both nostalgia and novelty—a true celebration of rock music. Fans are encouraged to secure their tickets early for what promises to be one of the highlights of the rock festival circuit this year.
