Queens Of The Stone Age’s Josh Homme Creates Score For New Film “In The Fade”

Queens Of The Stone Age’s Josh Homme has has created the score for a new German film called “In The Fade.” The movie was written and directed by Fatih Akin, and it stars Diane Krugerr as a woman seeking revenge after Neo-nazis kill her husband and son. You can check out a trailer for that below:

Akin told Variety the following about recruiting Homme:

“When I was writing this, I was listening to a lot of music by Queens Of The Stone Age. I had the feeling that this could be the music that the character was listening to, It has a self-destructive attitude and somehow the film is about self-destruction. I sent him a very early version of the film. He immediately called back saying he loved it and was blown away and that he would like to put his hands on it. 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.”

Queens Of The Stone Age’s Josh Homme Talks New Album

Josh Homme was recently interviewed by The Rock FM, and talked a little bit about the new Queens Of The Stone Age album. He said the following:

“Well I think the new record is more like… We’re sort of like a panther in a tree leaping out of the darkness. I think we feel ready to pounce, everyone is really ready to go. We’re just leaning on the gate waiting for someone to open that sucker up so we can move. And I think the record feels that way too. It feels uptempo and like… Where the last thing [“…Like Clockwork“] was about making it through, this record, we’ve made it through the other side and we’re ready to roll.”

When asked about a release date, he stayed secretive::

“I think one of the great things about being in a rock n’ roll band is the mystery of it all. And I think we’re just gonna unfurl that in a slow way. It’s gonna be a bit of rock n’ roll hide and seek. So we’re just gonna start letting loose some clues here and there—we’ll have fun gently torturing each other, know what I mean?”

He also said the following when asked if he still has goals he would like to achieve:

“I’ve always been a believer that right now is all you’ll ever get and in that respect I don’t get too nostalgic. I think the most difficult thing is to make your last record your best record. And the only way to do that is to concentrate on the ones that you’re on and make them full of risk and be vulnerable and take a chance.

At the end of the day, this is just a musical way to explain a lifetime. So the most important record I’m making is the one I’m working on. For the lack of a better term, I sort of bet my life on that. Those other things have been such a blessing and I’d like to take things that I’ve learned and put everything into this new thing. Because if you don’t risk anything, you’re not gonna get anything. I don’t want to copy myself, I just want to take another chance at it. Take another swing at it. It keeps it always exciting that way.”
