Queens Of The Stone Age have hinted that they’re set to make a surprise appearance at Glastonbury Festival 2023.
Three UK gigs in Halifax, Cardiff and Margate are already announced as part of the run, and today (May 28) the band teased a fourth gig in the run, at Glastonbury, on their Instagram Stories.
In the three cities on their short UK tour, the band took photos of posters reading ‘long live the Queens’, before a fourth photo was shared of a poster stuck on the wall at Glastonbury Tor.
Also included in the post was a location tag for Castle Cary, a nearby town to the festival and site of the train station attendees arrive in to.
See the post below.
Having been teasing their return this week with online videos and billboards in London, the band recently revealed details of the follow-up to 2017’s ‘Villains‘ with their eighth album ‘In Times New Roman’ arriving on June 8 via Matador Records.
Described by QOTSA as “the sound of a band creating the music its own members want to hear, while giving the rest of us a sonic forum in which to congregate”, ‘In Times New Roman’ was recorded and mixed at Homme’s own Pink Duck studios, with additional recording at Shangri-La. The album was produced by Queens Of The Stone Age and mixed by Mark Rankin.
