So, it’s been all-change at Queens Of The Stone Age HQ of late – what with the hiring and firing that’s gone on, and the band’s moving to Matador Records from past label Interscope – and now, like clockwork, arrives a pay-off in the shape of info on Josh Homme and co’s new LP… erm, ‘…Like Clockwork’.

Fated for a TBC June release, this “audio documentary of a manic year” (says Homme) – and the band’s first long player since 2007’s ‘Era Vulgaris’ – features guest appearances by Trent Reznor, Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner, Mark Lanegan and ex-QOTSA bassist Nick Oliveri. And Elton John and Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears. Oh, and ex-Mars Volta man Joey Castillo, who will, it looks like, play drums in place of Dave Grohl if/when the Queens go on tour.
