The forthcoming album, which consists of 10 tracks, has been described as "raw, at times brutal and not recommended for the faint of heart."

A press release explains: "Founder Joshua Homme's most acerbic lyrics to date are buoyed by the instantly identifiable QOTSA sonic signature, expanded and embellished with new and unprecedented twists in virtually every song.

"With In Times New Roman… we see that sometimes one needs to look beneath scars and scabs to see beauty, and sometimes the scabs and scars are the beauty."
