Queens of the Stone Age have achieved their first UK No.1 album with their seventh record Villains.
The US band clocked around 32,000 sales during the album's first week of release.
The Mark Ronson-produced album has knocked Ed Sheeran‘s ÷ [Divide] from the top spot.
Homme, who is set to appear on CBeebies' Bedtime Story series, told NME that Ronson's involvement had helped “prune” their audience of “racist, homophobic, misogynistic assholes”.
“The idea is to have our audience be an open-minded group of individuals, I think that's why even picking Ronson initially [was] to chase people away,” he added.
