Queens Of The Stone Age Unveil Dates For 2013 North American Tour
It has been one week since Cali rock group Queens of the Stone Age released their sixth studio album '...Like Clockwork,' which estimated to sell between 80 and 85,000 units nationwide. With a new album comes a new tour and the quintet just revealed the North American dates, which kick off August 2 in Chicago, Illinois and conclude October 13 in Mexico City, Mexico. Read all about it below.
...Like Clockwork was self-produced by the Queens and conceived after front man Josh Homme suffered grave complications following a 2010 knee surgery that left him hospitalized for two weeks and bed ridden for four months.
During this time, Homme sank into a deep depression, noting "I would never say, 'I'm probably not gonna make it out of here.' But back then, I would definitely think it." The remaining members of Queens of the Stone Age - guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen, drummer Joey Castillo, bassist Michael Shuman and guitarist and keyboardist Dean Fertita - encouraged Homme to return to the band to begin work on a sixth studio album. Homme noted, "I had to ask them 'If you want to make a record with me right now, in the state I’m in, come into the fog. It’s the only chance you got.' It brought us much closer, because you never really know someone till everything goes wrong."
