So that’s May 13th 2016. Put it in your diary.

Josh Homme explains, “There won’t be hardly any shows, and they won’t be in big places, and you won’t be able to get a ticket. So almost everyone won’t see it. It will be like trying to catch smoke in your hands. And that makes it even better. It will be special, and it will be over in the blink of an eye.”

‘Post Pop Depression’ is Iggy Pop’s 19th studio album and, according to Josh, represents “a much deserved victory lap for a man who’s not sure if he won. But he did. He may have tunneled underground for lots of that, but he still got to the destination.”

The band have released two songs so far, the very good ‘Gardenia‘ and the very good ‘Break Into Your Heart‘, and the album is coming March 18th
