queens-of-the-stone-age_smooth-sailing2Today, Queens of The Stone Age premiered a new music video for their song “Smooth Sailing”. The track is the fifth single off their 2013 smash hit, …Like Clockwork, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 last June and ranked #5 on TheRockRevival.com’s list of the Top 50 Rock Albums of 2013. Back in February, the band joined forces with Nine Inch Nails, Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), and Lindsey Buckingham (Fleetwood Mac) for the grand finale at the 2014 Grammy Awards. The band have also announced an extensive world tour, with stops in North America, Europe, and South America. The band recently completed a Australian co-headlining run with Nine Inch Nails. The band is set to perform at the Coachella Music & Arts Festival on April 12 in Encino, CA among many other festivals around the world throughout the spring and summer.

Queens of The Stone Age tapped Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl to play QOTSA banddrums on their sixth studio LP. The album is the long-awaited follow-up to 2007′s Era Vulgaris, on which Grohl did not play. The album still debuted at #14 on the Billboard Top 200, selling over 52,000 copies in it’s first week of sales. Along with 2000′s Rated R, the band’s 2002 masterpiece Songs For The Deaf is one of the best albums of the decade, and the last time Grohl played with Queens of The Stone Age. The disc hit #17 on the Billboard Top 200, and went on to sell over 1 million copies. Throughout their career, Queens of the Stone Age have been nominated for the Best Hard Rock Performance Grammy Award four times. Queens of The Stone Age served as a feature act at the Budweiser Made In America Festival 2013. – by Matt Bishop (@The_MattBishop)
