It's the first album from the band featuring Brian "Head" Welch in over seven years.

Ain't gonna happen
Well, that's a nail in the coffin ... Vinnie Paul, the brother of Dimebag Darrell and drummer of Pantera says there's no way the band will get back together. So, whatever rumblings you're hearing ... drop it. It ain't gonna happen!
Well, that blows ... Corey Taylor from Slipknot and Stone Sour fame was robbed of $36,000 in Music Gear. The really bogus part is the culprit is a friend of his that was looking out for the singer's house. Stuff was jacked from both Taylor's home and storage unit. And, what even sucks more is that two basses originally owned by deceased bassist Paul Gray were also taken. It’s reported that several of Taylor’s real friends tipped the singer and police off to the thefts and that someone was attempting to sell some of the items at a music store in Iowa. If you can’t trust your friends, who can you trust? What a bummer of a story.
Queens of the Stone Age’s album … Like Clockwork already went No. 1 on it's debut and now the band decides to put out an infomercial.
