Led by vocalist-guitarist Josh Homme, the band’s current lineup includes guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen, bassist Michael Shuman, keys and guitar player Dean Fertita and drummer Jon Theodore. “In Times New Roman…” is QOTSA’s first new album since 2017’s “Villains,” and features the singles “Emotion Sickness,” “Carnavoyeur” and “Paper Machete.” The band self-produced the album, which was mixed by Mark Rankin (Iggy Pop, Weezer) and recorded at Homme’s Pink Duck Studios in Burbank and famed producer Rick Rubin’s Shangri-La studio in Malibu.
In between its own albums, members of the band also worked on Iggy Pop’s 2016 album “Post Pop Depression” and served as his live band on tour.
