They say today is a celebration for the resurrection of Jesus Christ after he was crucified. That's one belief. I can respect that. Others may celebrate the fact they'll get given a crap tonne of egg shaped chocolate from numerous family members and friends, or maybe even from some fictitious fluffy rabbit. If you're into that kind of thing, I can respect that too.
I however will be celebrating the return of Queens of the Stone Age, who have debuted brand new material at Lollapalooza Brazil. Hell yeah. Titled "My God is the Sun", it sees Josh Homme and co also introduce Jon Theodore from The Mars Volta & One Day As A Lion behind the drum kit. It's got to be said that Jon does have some pretty big shoes to fill but he absolutely owns it here. The track itself has soaring choruses and all kinds of time signature trickery. It's perfect Easter Sunday listening and it won't damage your waistline unlike all that chocolate you no doubt have staring at you from across the room right now.
The track is likely to appear on the newly announced follow up to Era Vulgaris from the band, ...Like Clockwork. It's due out in June via the band's new label Matador Records. Hat tip to the guys who are always one step ahead with the QOTSA news and goodies, of course I'm talking about Antiquiet.
