John Paul Jones reveals studio plan

Them Crooked Vultures bassist John Paul Jones has explained that the band plan to record their second album later this year.

The bassist, along with Dave Grohl and Josh Homme, had previously revealed they planned to record a second album but now Jones has said we can expect it before 2010 ends.

“We’ll do a second album this year,” he told Stuff.co.nz. “By the end of summer, something like that.”

He added, “We’re all hard workers. In a way we need to do this for ourselves. Once we committed to it we worked as hard as a young band would, put the hours in. It’s got to be good – we’ve got reputations to uphold more than anything else.”

Them Crooked Vultures are set to play at this year’s Download Festival alongside AC/DC and Stone Temple Pilots.
