Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner has joined the roster of rockstars who will appear on Queens Of The Stone Age's new album.
Josh Homme produced Arctic Monkey's 2011 album "Suck It And See", and has apparently invited him to join the long-awaited QOTSA album due in June which is ironically called "...Like Clockwork".
It's not clear exactly what Turner will do on the album, but his role was revealed on a new press release which also revealed former Mars Volta drummer Jon Theodore as another drummer on the record, alongside Dave Grohl and former QOTSA drummer Joey Castillo. According to Antiquiet, Theodore will in fact be the full-time touring drummer for the band.
Another late addition to the list of collaborators is UNKLE's James LaVelle.
There's so many guest collaborators now that it's getting hard to keep track, so here they are again: Dave Grohl, Mark Lanegan, Nick Oliveri, Trent Reznor, Jake Shears and Sir Elton John. And those mentioned above. Phew.
Is this a QOTSA record or is it starting to be more like Homme's famous "Desert Sessions" recordings where he would invite a big group of select musicians to jam with him? Let us know what you think in the comments.
