Queens Of The Stone Age debut new song ‘Negative Space’ at Boston Calling

Queens Of The Stone Age debuted a new song, ‘Negative Space’, at Boston Calling on Sunday night (May 28) – check it out below.

The song is taken from the band’s upcoming new album ‘In Times New Roman’, which is set to arrive on June 16. It was preceded by the album’s lead single ‘Emotion Sickness’.

The Boston Calling gig was Queens Of The Stone Age’s second show in three years after they made their live comeback in Ohio on Friday, where they gave ‘Emotion Sickness’ its live debut.


Elsewhere, they opened their Boston Calling set by dusting off ‘Misfit Love’, taken from their 2007 album ‘Era Vulgaris’, for its first live airing since 2018.

Meanwhile, Queens Of The Stone Age have also been teasing an appearance at Glastonbury when they come to the UK for a string of shows in Halifax, Cardiff and Margate next month.


In the three cities on their short UK tour, the band took photos of posters reading ‘long live the Queens’, before a fourth photo was shared of a poster stuck on the wall at Glastonbury Tor.

Also included in the post was a location tag for Castle Cary, a nearby town to the festival and site of the train station attendees arrive in to.
