Hey, look what we found. After blowing out the initial pressing, it looks like we’ve got more copies of the deluxe 2XLP edition of Queens of the Stone Age’s ‘…Like Clockwork’ (180 gram, 45 RPM discs pressed at Pallas, exclusive 20 page booklet, special super-thick oversized heavy-duty gatefold, visuals by B0NEFACE), available for a limited time direct from The Matador Store.
For a limited time (through the end of October) we’re offering all you devoted Matablog readers 20% off at the Matador Store. To receive the discount simply enter promo code 20october at checkout. This is a perfect time to pick up some of our great new releases from DARKSIDE, Lee Ranaldo and the Dust, or Glasser.
(EDITOR’S NOTE: OK, that has to be one of the 3 or 4 longest headlines in Matador history. I’d encourage you to find the others but there’s NO PRIZES WHATSOEVER on offer, so perhaps it’s best to do something more constructive and/or less Matador-centric. QOTSA’s powerful PR firm prepared the copy below and I’ll simply add the following ; Marc Maron is one of our finest interviewers/conversationalists and his meeting of the minds with Josh might be one of the 3 or 4 most important moments in the history of the podcast medium. Again, you can try to identify the others, but there are no prizes. It’s not like we’re made of prizes – GC)
Queens of the Stone Age continue to steamroll their way across the globe in support of their triumphant album, …Like Clockwork. The juggernaut shows no sign of slowing as the last quarter of 2013 is set to kick just as much ass as the previous three.
Recently, Josh Homme ventured to Marc Maron’s garage to take part in his ever-entertaining podcast, WTF with Marc Maron. Hear Marc and Josh discuss aspirations to change guitar strings in under 10 seconds, growing up in the desert and how Iggy Pop’s Lust for Life and The Idiot changed his life. The podcast is now available at www.wtfpod.com.
In additional tour news, Queens of the Stone Age are set to join Nine Inch Nails for a jaunt across Australia and New Zealand that is sure to rattle the dust from the rafters. Our friends Down Under are encouraged to prepare themselves for a night they won’t soon forget. More info on Queens of the Stone Age and Nine Inch Nails’ co-headline march across the outback is available via www.qotsa.com.
For those unable to make it to beautiful Austin, TX for the second weekend of Austin City Limits, the live stream gods smile upon thee. You’ll be able to stream Queens’ ACL set in its entirety from the comfort of your living room or wherever else you pay homage to rock. More information concerning the live stream can be found at http://www.aclfestival.com/.
The band will also be playing a coveted set for the 27th Annual Bridge School Benefit Concerts, which is headlined by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.. This event takes place on October 26th and 27th at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA. Tickets are currently on sale via Live Nation.
To wrap up new touring news, Queens of the Stone Age will be returning to the Northeast for shows at Agganis Arena in Boston on December 13th and Barclays Center in Brooklyn on December 14th, both supported by The Kills. Those who were lucky enough to attend the band’s surprise performance at the Masonic Temple in Brooklyn in June know these shows are not to be missed. Tickets are available now at http://qotsa.com/live/.
And if you are still unable to make it to these dates, we have good news. Bring the Queens of the Stone Age live experience home with their new iTunes Festival live EP available now. Visit iTunes, download and shred away. And to experience Queens in full studio majesty, ….Like Clockwork is now available for a low low price at http://smarturl.it/QOTSAlikeclockwork.

The above photo surfaced from the band mysteriously, so who knows what these guys have in store for us next. As always, be vigilant and Keep Your Eyes Peeled for updates over at:

In the event you missed Josh Homme being interviewed by Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot on WEBZ’s “Sound Opinions” a couple of weeks ago, here’s another chance to hear it.
While in Chicago a couple of weeks ago for Lollapalooza, Queens of The Stone Age‘s Josh Homme sat down with “Sound Opinions’ Greg Kot and Jim DeRogatis for a wide ranging chat ; we’re not sure how so many other major media outlets spaced on the Medieval Times story, but their loss is your gain. You can hear the full interview here, or if you prefer, tonight at 8pm central on WBEZ (or via any of the affiliate stations carrying the program).
On the even of Queens of The Stone Age kicking off their 2013 North American touring in support of their Billboard numero uno album ‘…Like Clockwork’ at Chicago’s Metro (followed by a 6:15pm set Friday at Lollapalooza), the band appeared on last night’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live”.
