Sets will be reissued on limited color vinyl
More than a quarter century since its primal emergence from the desert, Queens Of The Stone Age has elected to give three of its landmark albums the upscale re-release treatment, including limited edition color vinyl pressings, exclusive new and restored artwork, and more.
First is the group’s self-titled 1998 debut album that will be resurrected digitally September 22nd, with a vinyl release date of October 21st. Restored to its original track listing and adorned by the long out-of-print original Frank Kozik artwork, the soon to be definitive version of QOTSA’s self-titled ground zero will feature an obi-strip designed by longtime collaborator Boneface and will be available on standard black and limited edition opaque orange vinyl.
Following on December 9th will be a double shot of Queens Of The Stone Age’s most recent efforts — 2013’s multiple-GRAMMY-nominated, Billboard 200 No. 1 charting magnum opus …Like Clockwork and 2017’s redefining Villains will both be reincarnated. …Like Clockwork returns newly recut from its original master tapes with alternate artwork and obi-strip from Boneface with a limited opaque aqua vinyl pressing. Villains is reissued in a special fifth anniversary package featuring etching, obi-strip, and a new poster by Boneface, and as on limited edition leaf-green transparent vinyl.
All will be available via the band’s webstore and independent retailers.
