Lonely Boys

Lonely Boys


Lonely Boys – a rock six-piece from Ngukurr in Arnhemland – will join QOTSA as the band’s special guest at their debut NT show. Ambrose Daniels, Winston Joshua, Thomas Wurramara, Burt Rami, Kasley Daniels and Leon Daniels have been making music together for almost 17 years, releasing new EP The Hunter (Skinnyfish Music) last week. Recorded with producer Forrester Savell (Birds Of Tokyo, Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus) at Loose Stones studios on QLD’s Gold Coast, check out the making of The Hunter EP here.

Ecca Vandal

Ecca Vandal


Early last year saw the surprise release of Ecca Vandal’s debut EP, tilted ‘End Of Time’. The five-track effort is named after her 2015 single 'End of Time' and also features her fiery breakout number, 'Battle Royal'. Bucking trends has been par for the course for the South African/Sri Lankan heritage, Melbourne-based singer/producer/performer. She's effortlessly changed her musical stripes with each new release.

Eyes No Eyes

Eyes No Eyes


Eyes No Eyes is a recently formed four-piece based in Auckland that brings together members of a diverse range of musical projects including the likes of Wormstar, Trip Pony, Couchmaster, Bespin and The DHDFD's. Together they spin a sound reminiscent of the dreamy soundscapes of 90s shoegaze aristocracy such as Mazzy Star, My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive. (via

Arguably the most powerful and critically acclaimed hard rock band of the last two decades: Queens Of The Stone Age will return to Australia and New Zealand in July 2017 for Frontier Touring, performing four visceral headline shows.

‘Some bands are better than others. Chord by chord, line by line, beat by beat, hook by glorious hook, none is as convincing as Queens Of The Stone Age.’ – The Los Angeles Times

QOTSA will kick off their tour at Auckland’s Logan Campbell on Thursday 13th July. They’ll play Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion on Wednesday 19th July, and Melbourne’s Festival Hall on Thursday 20th July.

And that’s not all. Northern Territory – it’s your time. In what promises to be a truly once-in-a-lifetime gig to remember, QOTSA will bring their end-of-the-world grooves to the Top End for the very first time - ever, performing at Darwin’s Convention Centre on Sunday 16th July. It’s not every day (or hell let’s face it, every year) that one of the world’s biggest rock bands heads to Darwin, so don’t delay in grabbing tickets. Interstaters: book airfares, lock in accom… this is one show you don’t want to miss.  

General public tickets to all shows will go on sale Wednesday 12 April – head over to for all of the details. There will be no second shows in any city – these are your only chance to catch QOTSA live.

Deadly and debonair, QOTSA – led by founding member/frontman Josh Homme (guitar/vocals), with Troy Van Leeuwen (guitar), Dean Fertita (guitar/keys), Jon Theodore (drums/percussion), and Michael Shuman (bass) – having toured both countries multiple times to sell-out crowds, they are no strangers to Australian and New Zealand fans. It’s been three years since their last visit, during which Homme declared, “Everybody who knows me knows that Australia is my home away from home”.

Emerging from California’s Palm Desert in the late ‘90s with their seminal 1998 self-titled debut – opener ‘Regular John’ a blistering statement of intent – over the next 19 years QOTSA have continually evolved, Homme forging his own path from album to album. 2000’s Rated R was an international hit, containing ‘Feel Good Hit Of The Summer’, ‘Monsters In The Parasol’, and ‘The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret’. 2002’s platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated Songs For The Deaf is considered one of the greatest rock records of all time hands down. It featured guest drummer Dave Grohl plus the #1 song in triple j’s Hottest 100, ‘No One Knows’, alongside ‘Go With The Flow’, ‘First It Giveth’ and more.

2005’s Lullabies to Paralyze cemented their reign with singles ‘Little Sister’ and ‘Burn The Witch’, while  2007’s Era Vulgaris saw the band take yet another direction as heard on tracks ‘Sick, Sick, Sick’, ‘Make It Wit Chi’ and  ‘3’s & 7’s’.

Most recently, their sixth album, …Like Clockwork, enlisted Trent Reznor and Elton John, featured ‘My God Is The Sun’, ‘I Sat By The Ocean’, and the sultry ‘Smooth Sailing’, and debuted at #1 on the ARIA Album charts in Australia and #2 in New Zealand. It topped charts in the USA, Portugal, Ireland, UK, Canada, Belgium, Switzerland, Finland and more, making it one of the band’s highest-selling discs yet. The follow-up to 2013’s critically acclaimed …Like Clockwork is eagerly awaited by fans, with a new album in the works.

For the last 18 months QOTSA have kept a low profile, working on new material… Homme collaborating with Iggy Pop on the singer’s 2016 album Post Pop Depression, which he co-wrote, recorded and produced at his Pink Duck studio in Burbank and Joshua Tree’s Rancho De La Luna. (Upon release it would be Pop’s highest charting album ever.)

Now, QOTSA return, at last bringing their military precision and razorblade rock back to Australia and New Zealand, also headlining Byron Bay festival Splendour In The Grass on Saturday 22 July. It’s been three years since their legendary double-bill alongside Nine Inch Nails, shows which left critics and fans reeling:

‘Arguably the tightest hard rock band on the circuit ★★★★’ – The Guardian

‘Enormous crowd favourites including ‘Go With the Flow’ and the closing, knockout punch of ‘A Song For the Deaf’ were blended seamlessly with new tracks, while ‘Better Living Through Chemistry’ was classic QOTSA that will have fans shaking their heads in awe for days and weeks ahead’ – Sydney Morning Herald

‘[Homme’s] voice is truly one of the finest in rock today, not shirking the high notes on the sexy as hell ‘Make It Wit Chu’ and rumbling with intent on ‘No One Knows’.’ –

‘Spellbinding … a tighter band you’d be hard pressed to find’ – Newcastle Herald

‘Queens are the best rock band on the planet’ – The Music

These tickets will go fast – don’t miss out on seeing Queens Of The Stone Age as they make their welcome return to Australia and New Zealand this July!
