Queens Of The Stone Age to begin recording new album ‘in January’

Keyboardist Dean Fertita reveals that 'everybody seems excited and ready to go'

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’.
