Great.

Dave Grohl won’t be touring with Queens of the Stone Age even though he plays drums on their new record, he told CBS Local.
Grohl also said in the interview that he expects Them Crooked Vultures, his band with Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones to play together again.

“We’ve talked about it, I know that someday we’ll get back together and do stuff, because we love playing with each other,” Grohl explained.

Grohl recently described Queens of the Stone Age as “the baddest rock and roll band in the world”. Speaking to the BBC, he said: “With Queens of the Stone Age, like, there were no boundaries with that band, there were no limits with them, it was like if you did something insane, you’d do more, if you did something that seemed too ridiculous– and honestly the new Queens of the Stone Age record, I’m playing drums on that, and I’ll do something so completely ridiculous, I’ll just, like, ‘There’s no way that Josh isn’t going to let me do that’, and he’ll say, ‘Do that for 45 seconds, over and over again, that’s become, like, part of the song, that is a big part of the song,’ and that’s the way they work.” (via NME)

Queens Of The Stone Age are set to begin recording a new album in January. Keyboardist Dean Fertita revealed that the band are “ready to go” on what will be the follow-up to 2007’s ‘Era Vulgaris’. “Everybody seems excited and ready to go,” Fertita told Billboard. “We’ve got so many ideas started already; I guess we’ll see what turns out to be everybody’s favorite.”

“It’s very much still [Josh Homme’s] band,” he continued. “But I think all of us really feel like we’ve found our space in it and can contribute to it as well.” A release date and title for the group’s sixth studio effort has yet to be announced. Meanwhile, the band recently reissued their 1998 self-titled debut album and earlier this year also released a 10th anniversary edition of their second LP, ‘Rated R’. (via NME)

“Queens Of The Stone Age are toying with the idea of playing all of their albums live in their entirety. Josh Homme his bandmates have been discussing holding a five-night concert for the event, as they regroup ahead of playing this summer’s Reading And Leeds Festivals. “We’ve talked about how much we enjoyed when Cheap Trick performed their first three records and we’ve thought about doing five nights for each record,” the frontman told Rolling Stone. “It’s been discussed – after a few shots – but it’s been discussed.” The talks have been occurring as the band prepare to start work on their next album. “I have ideas already absolutely,” Homme said of the forthcoming record. “It’s all about wiggling hips. The music is gonna go further down that strange and lovely path of (2007)’s “Era Vulgaris”.” In addition to debating the five-night run and writing a new album, the band are set to reissue a 10th anniversary edition of their major-label debut “Rated R”. “Universal wanted to do a 10-year anniversary and I was like, ‘What the fuck?’ I have trouble looking too far forward or back,” said the singer, who had earlier told NME he was surprised the band had lasted long enough to justify a reissue.” (via NME)

Queens Of The Stone Age will reissue their album “Rated R” from 2000. This new version will include B-sides and live recordings and it will most likely be released in july. Frontman Josh Homme says “Am I surprised Queens have survived to the point where we have reissues? Yes! And that all the people (bandmembers) are alive too.” (via NME)
