Over nearly two decades, Queens of the Stone Age have built a powerful and distinctive body of work that marks QOTSA as one of rock’s most consistently audacious outfits. The band’s reputation was built on its early hot streak of four smash releases: Rated R, Songs For The Deaf, Lullabies to Paralyze and Era Vulgaris. Interscope Records/UMe adds an exciting new chapter to QOTSA’s catalog with high-quality 180-gram vinyl editions of Rated R and Songs For The Deaf on November 22nd, and Lullabies to Paralyze and Era Vulgaris on December 20th.
2007’s Era Vulgaris finds QOTSA touching on a variety of styles, incorporating electronic and acoustic textures alongside the band’s trademark heavy rock crunch. The album includes such fan favorites as “Sick, Sick, Sick,” “3’s & 7’s” and “Make It Wit Chu,” with guest appearances by Julian Casablancas of The Strokes and frequent QOTSA collaborator Mark Lanegan. The previous LP edition was on 3x 10” LPs, this LP edition marks the first-ever release of Era Vulgaris on 12″ vinyl.
