Michael Shuman of Queens of the Stone Age (Audio Interview)


“It’s loose, there’s a sense of danger, there’s a sense of not knowing what’s going to happen, and that things could go wrong but you hope they go great, and maybe a little wrong too…”

From release: Queens of the Stone Age officially announce ‘The End Is Nero’ Summer 2024 Australian tour, the band’s first appearance in Australasia since 2018. ‘The End is Nero’ tour is in support of their acclaimed eighth studio album, ‘In Times New Roman…’ which debuted at #2 on the ARIA charts and which NME Australia described as “their darkest, knottiest material to date.’ The End Is Nero tour is an invitation from Joshua Homme, Troy Van Leeuwen, Michael Shuman, Dean Fertita and Jon Theodore to come celebrate the end of the world, which we hear is “in a month or two.” They would like to encourage the obscene and the clean, the outcasts and the weirdos, and anyone and everyone in between to attend, this is where you belong. Leave your judgement at the door, bring anything and everything else.

We caught up with Michael to discuss the return of QOTSA to Australia, creating their live show, their latest album, and so much more…
