Queens of the Stone Age Announce 2011 Tour Dates

Queens of the Stone Age have announced a tour behind the March 1 reissue of their self-titled debut album.

After spending a couple of weeks down under, playing in New Zealand and Australia, QotSA will arrive in New Orleans and begin touring North America. The band will hit venues in the South, the Midwest, the East Coast and Canada, but will only perform two shows on the West Coast, both in California.

In addition to the reissue, Domino and Rekords Rekords will also release a limited-edition 7″ of “How to Handle a Rope (A Lesson In the Lariat)” backed with “Avon.” The 7″ comes out February 28 and will be limited to 1,000 individually numbered copies.
