Dancing with Queens
The Dead Weather have just announced that they will be releasing their first album since 2010.
Somehow, this one slipped past me for almost a year.
Contrary to popular belief, this is not a death metal Eagles cover band.
Saw these guys perform this live a little while ago and Alex Turner even came out and sang his part. Little did I know this would show up on an official release.
You might know him as the former singer for the Screaming Trees and Queens of the Stone Age, but now he's got a solo project which has allowed him a little more creative freedom.
I saw these guys live at The Wiltern a few years back, and I was pleasantly surprised, considering their unorthodox stage setup.
If you haven't yet heard of Them Crooked Vultures, it's about time you did, especially if you're a rock fan.
At the beginning of the year, Dave Grohl released a documentary on the legendary Sound City Studios. In its day, Sound City was host to acts ranging from Tom Petty to Queens of the Stone Age.
Earlier this summer, Queens of the Stone Age released their newest album, "...Like Clockwork", showcasing a change in direction of their sound and incorporating more eclectic elements into their songs. Along with making their own changes to their style, QOTSA brought in a variety of collaborators ranging from Trent Reznor to Elton John to help them execute the daunting task of creating a landmark album for the 21st century.
