Queens Of The Stone Age Record New Song For Amnesty International

Queens of the Stone Age, Facebook

Desert rock aficionados Queens of the Stone Age are not well known for being a proactive band, so the news that they have recorded a song for the human rights organization Amnesty International comes as a bit of a surprise.

QOTSA don’t usually dabble in the world of ‘musical activism’. In fact this a band that once played at a drug and alcohol rehab facility and were kicked out for opening with ‘Feel Good Hit of the Summer’ — the song’s sole lyrics are “Nicotine, Valium, Vicodin, Marijuana, Ecstasy, and Alcohol”, repeated over and over until the chorus of “C-C-C-C-C-COCAINE!”

Perhaps the birth of frontman Josh Homme’s second child or his near death experience have brought about a new way of doing things for Queens of the Stone Age. Yesterday the band announced via Facebook that they have recorded a new song that will be included on an upcoming Amnesty International compilation disc. We will have more details on the song and compilation disc as they become available. For more information on Amnesty International click here.

Queens of the Stone Age recently performed at the PJ20 Festival and have been working on the follow-up to 2007′s ‘Era Vulgaris’, which was originally expected this year. The unusual amount of silence from the QOTSA camp of late most likely means we will not see a new album until 2012.
