THE CRITICS AGREE:
“One the rarest things in rock: a supergroup that not only deserves that appellation, but which actually is greater than the sum of its storied parts… Simply put, Jones has enhanced any musical setting he’s ever graced with his classy and virtuosic presence.”–Jim DeRogatis, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
“Melody isn’t the core strength of this band anyway. That would be rhythm, which in the hands of Mr. Grohl becomes a thunderous force.”–Nate Chinen, NEW YORK TIMES
“Unfortunately, it hasn’t translated nearly as well now that the much-buzzed all-star trio, which expands to a quartet in concert, has finally released its debut album, and much of the blame must rest on the third leg of this glitzy tripod, Queens of the Stone Age bandleader Josh Homme.”–Jim DeRogatis, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
Them Crooked Vultures’ self-titled debut album is finally in stores both physical and digital. Having been preceded by first single “New Fang,” iTunes freebie “Mind Eraser, No Chaser,” full album streams, and celebrated by an intimate club show last night at Los Angeles’ Roxy, the self-titled debut arrived 12 midnight Eastern Standard time November 17 in the United States and Canada on DGC/Interscope Records.
Them Crooked Vultures’ first ever series of shows in California and the Pacific Northwest continues tonight at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles, and continues with dates November 19 at the Fox Theater in Oakland, November 21 at the Paramount Theater in Seattle, and November 22 at the Roseland Theater in Portland. Following the west coast run, the band will embark on a December tour of the UK and Germany and January dates in Australia and New Zealand.
