Josh Homme Is A Cowbellaholic

Pitchfork just got a cool interview with Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age ...

Pitchfork: What's the story behind the title?

JH: It sounds like "the Vulgar Era", which I like, because that sounds like something that I would like to be part of.

Pitchfork: So you don't think we're in the vulgar era, just that it's something to shoot for?

JH: I mean, I think we're in it, and I'm stoked.

Pitchfork: Is there a U.S. tour in the works?

JH: Yeah, it starts in Bakersfield [California]. We're playing Bakersfield, Medford, Oregon, Duluth, all the cities that we never have gotten to. We're just going to play to the kids that don't often get shows.

Pitchfork: Will that be before the summer festival dates or after?

JH: Right after those. We go to Europe first, and then we're going to do what we're calling "The Duluth Tour".

Pitchfork: Where is the cowbell on Era Vulgaris?

JH: You know, it's like that old saying: "Drink one beer, but you're not an alcoholic. But play one cowbell, and you're a cowbellaholic."
