After months of speculation and buildup, Queens of the Stone Age officially announced their upcoming album on June 14, which will be titled Villains. The album is their long-awaited followup to 2013’s ...Like Clockwork.
In a jokingly fun teaser video released on Wednesday morning, the band is seen being interrogated while singer Josh Homme is connected to a lie detector machine. All the while, the man operating the machine grills the band with questions about the upcoming album, forcing them to reveal only its title, producer and whether or not Homme can read minds. Spoiler: he can’t.
The video, which can be watched above, doesn’t address Villains’ release date, but does inform fans that the upcoming LP was produced by rock/pop hitmaker, Mark Ronson, who also makes an appropriate cameo in the video.
They also provide a brief audio sample of “Feet Don’t Fail Me,” around the 2:00 minute mark, which is expected to be the album's first single.
