Published Sep 15, 2010Back in July, we learned that desert rockers Queens of the Stone Age would be reissuing their Rated R with a handful of B-sides, covers and live cuts thrown in for good measure. This fall, their self-titled debut from 1998 will be getting a similar treatment.
The album, which is currently out of print, will be packaged along with with three extra tracks not included in the original version. Interestingly, these songs are not simply tacked onto the end, but have been slotted into the tracklist: "The Bronze" at track six, "These Aren't the Droids You're Looking For" at track eleven and "Spiders and Vinegaroons" at track thirteen.
The 180-gram vinyl edition is due out on November 26 via Homme's own Rekords Rekords label, in partnership with Ipecac Recordings. It will be packaged in a double-gatefold sleeve and come along with a download card. The CD version will follow on December 7.
UPDATE: The reissue is now out on January 11.
UPDATE 2: The reissue will now come via Domino on March 1.
