Formed from the vestiges of stoner-rock outfit Kyuss, Queens of The Stone Age just announced the release of a seventh album, Villains, out August 25 on Matador Records. Singer/guitarist Josh Homme notes: “The most important aspect of making this record was redefining our sound, asking and answering the question 'what do we sound like now?’” (Guitar World). See Queens of The Stone Age at Roy Wilkins Auditorium on October 14.
In February 2011, LCD Soundsystem announced that they would disband after a massive farewell performance at Madison Square Garden. On Christmas of 2015, the group surprise-released the single “Christmas Will Break Your Heart,” followed by an announcement of their reunion. Their first album in seven years, American Dream is slated to release September 1 of this year. See them at Roy Wilkins Auditorium on November 9.
Longstanding roots/jam outfit O.A.R. just announced their fall stOARies Tour. Following the release of 2014’s XX, the Maryland band has been on the road since then, and show no signs of slowing down. See them in the Mainroom on November 12.
