Queens of the Stone Age made their big return to the stage last night (May 26th). Josh Homme and Co. hadn't played a proper show since back before the pandemic when they played one gig in early 2020, their first since 2018. Thankfully, they've now ended that drought with a triumphant headlining set at Ohio's Sonic Temple festival.
The gig also marked QOTSA's first show since they finally announced their long-rumored eighth album, In Times New Roman…, which is set to arrive in just a few weeks, and which they already previewed with a funky, soulful single called "Emotion Sickness."
Naturally, Queens busted that song out during yesterday's 11-song set, as well as classics like "No One Knows," "Little Sister" and "Go With the Flow."
