Queens Of The Stone Age to reissue ‘Rated R’ album

B-sides and live recordings set for new package

Queens Of The Stone Age are set to reissue their 2000 album ‘Rated R’ this summer – with B-sides and live recordings featured as part of the new package.

Frontman Josh Homme told NME.COM that the reissue will probably be released in July. It will feature a live recording from one of the band’s past performances at the Reading Festival as well as extra tracks.

“Am I surprised Queens have survived to the point where we have reissues?” Homme questioned. “Yes! And that all the people [other players on ‘Rated R’ are alive too.”

Queens Of The Stone Age are set to return to play the Reading And Leeds Festivals this August.

The tracklisting and final release date of the ‘Rated R’ reissue are yet to be announced.

‘Rated R’ was voted NME writers’ album of the year in 2000.
