Queens of the Stone Age to make Conan appearance this Thursday

Queens of the Stone Age will be making an appearance on Conan this Thursday, April 14th at 11/10c on TBS. The band are currently wrapping up a sold-out tour where it played it’s debut s/t album in its entirety. The reissue of Queens of the Stone Age will be available on CD , double vinyl LP and via digital download  on May 17th. Pre-orders for the vinyl or CD formats will receive an instantly available digital download of the full record.

The genesis of Queens Of The Stone Age-the band and this first album-goes back to the 1995 dissolution of the criminally overlooked Kyuss, specifically founding guitarist Homme’s migration from the California Desert to the Pacific Northwest to work on a new project concurrent with spending time on the road as second guitarist in Screaming Trees. Homme discarded the sludgy low-end expanses of his former band for much tighter song structure (for the most part) and honest-to-goodness capital ‘H’ hooks and what was originally christened Gamma Ray was quickly changed to Queens Of The Stone Age shortly after its 1996 birth.
