Post Pop Depression is equal parts a dream come true for co-creator Josh Homme as it is a record that defiantly takes its place in Iggy’s storied discography alongside the twin towers of The Idiot and Lust For Life—two records and the mythic Berlin era of their creation canonized as much lyrically ("German Days") as sonically ("Sunday") on this new record.
The album is a singular work that bears its creators’ undeniable sonic DNA while sounding like nothing they’ve done before. It’s a record that wouldn’t exist without either Pop or Homme—and one that probably shouldn’t in theory if you really think about it—but it does, and we and rock ‘n’ roll are all the better for it.
The Post Pop Depression tour will mark the sole occasion that this album lineup will perform this material, as well as classics spanning Iggy’s legendary solo career, in a live setting. This unique group includes Iggy Pop, producer/guitarist/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/bandleader Joshua Homme, Homme’s Queens Of The Stone Age bandmate and Dead Weather-man Dean Fertita, Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders, augmented by QOTSA multi-instrumentalist Troy Van Leeuwen and journeyman guitarist/bassist Matt Sweeney..
