Following the worldwide success of their latest studio effort "...Like Clockwork
," Queens of the Stone Age
have already confirmed their readiness to hit the studio once again and deliver a new record.
As frontman Josh Homme
told Rolling Stone
, we're in for a much shorter album break than the last one. Asked about being ready to make another record soon, Josh commented: "Absolutely. We have more than enough songs. We're booked 'til September, but after that we plan to jump in the studio and get going."
Homme continued, "When it's time to make music, that's about getting lost for me. To be a control freak is not half as good as being a freak who's casually in control. You're feeling around in the dark for something that feels good. As long as you're not in an orgy, that can be an amazing moment."
The band is already booked throughout the first quarter of 2014. Multiple summer festival dates are also confirmed, with an announcement of major UK fest gigs expected to drop soon.
