After months of rumors and mysterious teasers, Queens of the Stone Age have officially announced their first album in four years, Villains, along with a full Villains North American tour this fall. Scroll down to see the full list of dates. 2017 just got 100% more awesome for QOTSA fans.

The album is set to arrive on August 25 and is produced by Mark Ronson, who appears in the trailer for the new set. In the trailer, which is directed by Liam Lynch, you can hear a snippet of a Villains' song, "Feet Don’t Fail Me." The band also released the audio of one full Villians song, "The Way You Used To Do."

In a recent interview, Josh Homme explained that the album will be “untempo,” and he compared it to “a panther in the trees leaping out of the darkness.” Sounds scary.

Villains is their first record since 2013’s No. 1 album ...Like Clockwork. Earlier this year, Josh Homme and company announced their first shows in nearly two years, a slew of dates in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and a handful of North American shows, including next week in Niagara Falls, and and Montebello Rockfest in Canada, as well as Riot Fest and Outside Lands. The Villains Tour itself touches goes full force in September, starting on the East Coast, heading the to Midwest, then back to the east before jumping to Europe.
