QOTSA set to play salt mine gig + reveal new tracks

Your favorite prehistoric rock band, [tag]Queens of the Stone Age[/tag], has just finished it’s short Canadian trek, but being the traveling sort they don’t plan on resting any time soon as they’ll soon embark on their European tour. Yesterday a pretty weird press release, announced that Josh Homme and co. will play 1 mile underground in a therapeutic German salt mine.

The salt mine gig, located in Sondershausen, Germany is scheduled on November 20. Their german fanbase is pretty extensive and that will lead to some upsets, as this will be a invite-only show, open just to press, local personalities and some lucky various promotions winner (radio contests etc). Furthermore the band said that they’ll play a bunch of never before performed songs live, exclusively for the upcoming un-plugged. Oh and don’t forget their Vegoose Fest gig is tomorrow night, so don’t miss it!
