First Listen Live: Queens Of The Stone Age, '...Like Clockwork'

Queens of the Stone Age's first album in six years follows an unusually chaotic stretch for the band: Lineup and label changes, frontman Josh Homme's lengthy stint in the hit supergroup Them Crooked Vultures, and what Homme calls "a manic year" all inform the brooding, stormy sound of ...Like Clockwork. The band's sixth album, out June 4 on Matador Records, features guest performances by Dave Grohl (one of three drummers onboard), Elton John, Trent Reznor, Scissor Sisters' Jake Shears, Mark Lanegan and more.

But QOTSA's streamlined its lineup for this First Listen Live performance at The Wiltern in Los Angeles on May 23. QOTSA performed ...Like Clockwork in its entirety, plus a generous assortment of older material, including "No One Knows," "Kalopsia" and "A Song For The Dead." Hear highlights from the show.
