Though they have been hard at work on new material as of December 2010, ass-kicking sludge-rock titans Queens of the Stone Age are set to tour behind the re-release of their 1998 self-titled debut album. The long out-of-print record has been expanded and remastered, and boasts three add-ons from additional recording sessions: “The Bronze,” “These Aren’t The Droids You’re Looking For,” from the 1998 QOTSA/Beaver EP and “Spiders and Vinegaroons,” from the split Kyuss/QOTSA EP.

Kicking off on March 16th in Austin, TX, the trek will see QOTSA playing the entire debut album in full, as well as b-sides , rarities and hits. Check out album opener “Regular John” below. Tickets go on sale tomorrow.
