Queens of the Stone Age appears to be moving closer to a new album, the follow-up to 2013's ...Like Clockwork.
In a new interview to promote the band's upcoming Down Under tour, founder and frontman Josh Homme says that a new single will be out before the tour, which begins July 13 in Auckland, N.Z., and that the album features no guests after ...Like Clockwork's lineup of Elton John, Dave Grohl, Trent Reznor and others.
Homme did not say when the album will be released however; QOTSA recently posted a Twitter image with the legend Coming Twentyfive, with no explanation about what that means. The project also follows Homme and guitarist-keyboardist Dean Fertita's work with Iggy Pop in 2016 for his Post Pop Depression album and subsequent tour.
QOTSA five summer dates set for Australia and New Zealand, with no others announced yet.
