The announcement comes after Josh Homme, the band’s frontman, reformed his Desert Sessions project for an isolated recording session last December. Desert Sessions Volumes 11 and 12, featuring contributors such as Matt Berry, Les Claypool and Stella Mozgawa, are due for release on 25 October this year.
The four albums being reissued contain some of the band’s most successful songs, and helped cement QOTSA as an incredibly influential group. Queens of the Stone Age’s latest album, Villains, was released in 2017 to critical acclaim.
