Last night saw Josh Homme & Dean Fertita strip back the stage set-up and unplug the pedalboard for a scintilating version of the album closer ‘Villains of Circumstance’ on BBC Two’s Later… with Jools Holland.
The pair were joined by a string sextet who added sweeps of emotion to an already sentimentally charged track. Dean providing the key accompaniment to Josh’s unmatched crooning.
You will be able to see the second part of the ‘Later… with Jools Holland’ show this Saturday at 22:30 BST
Queens of The Stone Age recommence their US tour this week, and will be touring in Europe come November.

Lots going on in the Queens of the Stone Age world… Last week, the official music video for “Smooth Sailing” hit the internet (warning all of the dangers of karaoke). Last Saturday, the band took to their natural habitat to play the first weekend of Coachella. You can stream the full set here. Now time for the NEW news: This week Josh Homme guest stars on Portlandia. The episode airs in full on IFC this Thursday, April 17th at 10/9c.
“The Queens of the Stone Age frontman has many talents in life, but on Portlandia, he is a very disappointing gay man. He doesn’t dabble in home decorating, he doesn’t give unsolicited fashion advice, and he and his boyfriend are total slobs. In fact, they like to do Jaegerbombs for breakfast instead of drinking heart-healthy kale smoothies. What gives?
Watch this new clip from Portlandia and see just how disappointing Josh Homme is when it comes to living up to stereotypes.”
