Description

“The title Villains isn’t a political statement,” explained frontman Joshua Homme. “It has nothing to do with Trump or any of that shit. It’s simply 1) a word that looks fantastic and 2) a comment on the three versions of every scenario: yours, mine and what actually happened…Everyone needs someone or something to rail against – their villain – same as it ever was. You can’t control that. The only thing you can really control is when you let go.”

Produced by Mark Ronson and co-produced by Mark Rankin and mixed by Alan Moulder, Villains served as the first full album offering from Queens Of The Stone Age since 2013’s …Like Clockwork gave the band its first No. 1 album in the U.S. The sonic signatures of the lineup that took …Like Clockwork’ around the world and back – founder/guitarist/vocalist/lyricist Homme, Troy Van Leeuwen (guitar, keys), Michael Shuman (bass), Dean Fertita (keys, guitar), Jon Theodore (drums) – are as unmistakable as ever, though coexisting with sufficient new twists to induce recurring double takes. As Homme himself puts it, “The most important aspect of making this record was redefining our sound, asking and answering the question ‘what do we sound like now?’ If you can’t make a great first record, you should just stop – but if you can make a great record but you keep making records and your sound doesn’t evolve, you become a parody of that original sound.”
