It’s been four years since Queens of the Stone Age release Era Vulgaris and since then they stayed busy touring and working their side gigs. Most notably, frontman Josh Homme formed Them Crooked Vultures with Dave Grohl and John Paul Jones in 2009. Additionally, QotSA reissued their self-titled debut this year, which led to them touring to promote the release.
But according to Homme, the guys are sick of playing the record. And they apparently want to take quick break, play the Glastonbury Festival, and start working on and finishing their sixth album. At least, that’s what Homme told BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe.
He also provided the following details:
“Our record will be done by the end of the year. We have enough songs. We’re at a weird moment where we really don’t feel like we have anything to prove. We just
want to play to the people that are into us and we want to play right at them.”
I know I’m looking forward to hearing whatever they come up with, even if I have grown to prefer the Nick Oliveri-era stuff.
