“Did you guys see Queens of the Stone Age last night?” Pulled Apart By Horses' Tom Hudson asked the crowd during the Yorkshire rippers' Reading Festival set on Saturday morning. “That seven foot ginger sexy bastard…” Across their six years together, the band have heavily mined Josh Homme’s sleazy guitar work for inspiration. On new album 'Blood' however, their third studio effort to date, they become a phenomenon in their own right, taking no prisoners as they smash through 12 tracks of sledgehammer riffs and sludgey chaos. Fans will have already heard opening song 'Hot Squash' and single 'Lizard Baby' - the pace doesn't relent beyond those tracks, as the band crank up the violence on their brand of knuckleduster rock. Don't take our word for it though - listen for yourself below in our world exclusive stream if you know what's good for you. Enjoy...

'Blood’ is released next Monday (September 1) on Sony/RED. Catch the band on tour through September, including dates at Manchester's Gorilla (21) and London's Heaven (28).
