Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme performed a special acoustic solo show at London's Royal Festival Hall last night (Monday 16 June), where he unveiled a new song 'Villains Of Circumstance'. Check it out below.
Homme was performing under the invitation of friend and collaborator James Lavelle of UNKLE, who is curating this year's Meltdown Festival.
During a set packed with QOTSA classics and covers, Homme unveiled new track 'Victims Of Circumstance' - a dark, brooding and menacing number in a similar vein to 'Mosquito Song' and the slower laments on ...Like Clockwork. It sounds pretty awesome acoustic, but the build-up and multiple riffs would lend itself well to a full-band sound.

Homme has previously hinted that the next QOTSA album could be coming sooner rather than later, saying that he has material written, studio plans for the Autumn and would like to spend a lot less longer on the record than the six years it took to make ...Like Clockwork.
Meanwhile, Queens Of The Stone Age will be returning to the UK to headline Reading And Leeds festival alongside Paramore, Arctic Monkeys and more this summer. For more information visit Gigwise tickets.
