Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme has written the soundtrack for the forthcoming German cinematic thriller, In The Fade.
Homme became interested in the film after its director, Faith Akin, sent him an early version of In The Fade for his consideration. “He immediately called back saying he loved it and was blown away and that he would like to put his hands on it,” Akin revealed to the NME back in May. “We phoned maybe four or five times, sent 10 emails back and forth and then I had the music. It was a very uncomplicated, fast and very clean process of working.”
After premiering at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, In The Fade – which has been described as a hard-hitting “neo-Nazi revenge film” as it tells the story of a woman who seeks revenge on a neo-Nazi group after they murder her husband and son – will be released in Europe next month and on 27 December in US cinemas.
Ahead of its wide release, Homme’s score for In The Fade has now been released on major streaming platforms, with a physical release due in December. Homme was joined by fellow QOTSA members Michael Shuman and Troy Van Leeuwen for the recording of the soundtrack.
Earlier this week, Queens of the Stone Age also announced a massive outdoor show in London which is due to take place in June 2018. QOTSA will bring their Villains tour to London’s Finsbury Park next summer for a huge outdoor headline show scheduled for 30 June 2018.
The band will be supported by a stellar cast of acts, led by Iggy Pop – who collaborated with Homme and Dean Fertita on his last album, ‘Post Pop Depression’ – in what is a UK live exclusive.
Iggy Pop last played in Finsbury Park over 20 years ago, and the show will mark his first London performance since his sold-out Royal Albert Hall show with Homme, Fertita and Arctic Monkeys’ Matt Helders in May 2016.
Also Joining QOTSA and Iggy Pop on the bill are hip-hop duo Run The Jewels and Swedish garage-rockers The Hives.
