QOTSA Accidentally Reveal Album Title?

One online publication believes drummer Joey Castillo accidentally revealed the new album title in a recent interview. So what is it?

Queens Of The Stone Age may have accidentally revealed the title of their next album ahead of an official announcement.

If speculation on Antiquiet is to be believed, drummer Joey Castillo accidentally revealed the name during an interview with a German magazine.

Castillo was asked what direction the new album was heading in. He replied to say he wasn't allowed to answer that, but apparently said "the ultraviolet robot will blow your minds".

Antiquiet take this to mean the new album will be called Ultraviolet Robot, though it seems more likely that Castillo was instead using the term in a cryptic fashion to hint at the real title.

Frontman Josh Homme had previously said their new album wouldn't compromise on anything. "We're at a weird moment where we really don't feel like we have anything to prove," he said in May. "We just want to play to the people that are into us and we want to play right at them."

Meanwhile, Homme has sued his former bandmates in Kyuss Lives! for allegedly trying to steal the rights to their original band name Kyuss without Homme's permission.

    The music world so needs new QOTSA... so UG can stop posting interviews with Nickelback's producers.
    I would not mind if it was called Ultraviolet Robot, but it was probably just a description.
    It can also be the album cover. Because, you know, this is just as awesome as two lamps smoking pot.
    Well Josh did say they play robot rock, so it seems highly likely
    A hint of a surreal name is a hint at surreal music, and I like surreal music. Though of course hinting at something is far from declaring it as truth.
    Love QOTSA, Rated R and Songs for the Deaf are both two of the greatest stoner rock albums of all time, pumped for this.
    This is such a Queens thing to do lol. They're easily one of my favorite bands, and I know they'll do everyone proud with this album!
    id say it would be working title doesnt seem like a very qotsa album title to me considering homme has said a few times "the robot is back" referring to their older robot rock sound its a good fit
