The debut album from Queens Of The Stone Age is getting the reissue treatment, with the the band’s 1998 eponymous initial offering getting a tasty boost with three tracks previously only available as split singles.
Initially left off the album, the songs include single-worthy track The Bronze, as well as Them Crooked Vultures precursor These Aren’t The Droids You’re Looking For and instrumental jam Spiders And Vinegaroons. While the first two were made available as part of The Split CD, a QOTSA/Beaver joint offering, Spiders was released as a split compilation EP with Kyuss in December 1997.
If you missed them then, and you’d rather not wait until the release, we’ve got the goods here for you now, right here.
These Aren’t The Droids You’re Looking For:
Spiders And Vinegaroons:
Queens Of The Stone Age will be available as a double LP on November 26 and on CD on December 7, respectively. The new edition reflects the band’s original vision for the album, restoring Queens Of The Stone Age to its initial running order. QOTSA recently re-issued their breakthrough sophomore album Rated R as well.
