Queens of the Stone Age to premiere new song ‘My God Is The Sun’ tonight (April 8)

The track is the first to be taken from the band's forthcoming new album '…Like Clockwork'

Queens Of The Stone Age will debut a new track ‘My God Is The Sun’ on BBC Radio 1 tonight (April 8).

The track is the first taste of new music from the Josh Homme-fronted group and is taken from the band’s forthcoming new album ‘…Like Clockwork’. The song will be played by Zane Lowe is his 7-9pm radio slot.

You can watch a video of the band playing the song live in Brazil last month here. The Brazil show was the first opportunity for fans to get a glimpse of new drummer, former Mars Volta sticksman Jon Theodore. Dave Grohl replaced long-term drummer Joey Castillo for recording the new album, but Theodore is taking up touring duties behind the kit.

Queens Of The Stone Age are set to release ‘…Like Clockwork’, this June on their new label Matador. The album contains a list of guest stars, including Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner, Dave Grohl, Elton John, Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor, and Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters. In addition to the guest stars, it has also been confirmed that the band will embark on a world tour to promote the album. The band will also be playing a number of festivals this summer, including Benicàssim in Spain, and Download in the UK.
