Queens Of The Stone Age may have accidentally revealed the title of their next album ahead of an official announcement.
If speculation on Antiquiet is to be believed, drummer Joey Castillo accidentally revealed the name during an interview with a German magazine.
Castillo was asked what direction the new album was heading in. He replied to say he wasn't allowed to answer that, but apparently said "the ultraviolet robot will blow your minds".
Antiquiet take this to mean the new album will be called Ultraviolet Robot, though it seems more likely that Castillo was instead using the term in a cryptic fashion to hint at the real title.
Frontman Josh Homme had previously said their new album wouldn't compromise on anything. "We're at a weird moment where we really don't feel like we have anything to prove," he said in May. "We just want to play to the people that are into us and we want to play right at them."
Meanwhile, Homme has sued his former bandmates in Kyuss Lives! for allegedly trying to steal the rights to their original band name Kyuss without Homme's permission.
