Queens Of The Stone Age members Josh Homme and Dean Fertita appeared on the BBC’s Later… With Jools Holland last night.
The duo hooked up with a six-piece string section to deliver a stirring version of their track Villains Of Circumstance, which closes out their latest album Villains, which arrived last month.
Speaking about the material on the follow-up to 2013’s …Like Clockwork, Homme recently said: “The most important aspect of making this record was redefining our sound, asking and answering the question ‘what do we sound like now?’
“If you can’t make a great first record, you should just stop – but if you can make a great record but you keep making records and your sound doesn’t evolve, you become a parody of that original sound.”
Queens Of The Stone Age are about to head out on tour across the US and will return to Europe for further shows in November.
