Queens Of The Stone Age are toying with the idea of playing all of their albums live in their entirety.

Josh Homme his bandmates have been discussing holding a five-night concert for the event, as they regroup ahead of playing this summer's Reading And Leeds Festivals.

"We've talked about how much we enjoyed when Cheap Trick performed their first three records and we've thought about doing five nights for each record," the frontman told Rolling Stone. "It's been discussed – after a few shots – but it's been discussed."

The talks have been occurring as the band prepare to start work on their next album.

"I have ideas already absolutely," Homme said of the forthcoming record. "It's all about wiggling hips. The music is gonna go further down that strange and lovely path of (2007)'s 'Era Vulgaris'."

In addition to debating the five-night run and writing a new album, the band are set to reissue a 10th anniversary edition of their major-label debut 'Rated R'.

"Universal wanted to do a 10-year anniversary and I was like, 'What the fuck?' I have trouble looking too far forward or back," said the singer, who had earlier told NME he was surprised the band had lasted long enough to justify a reissue.

Homme has also busied himself with his label Rekords Rekords, set to release new tracks from Homme’s Desert Sessions project and Queens Of The Stone Age guitarist Alain Johannes' solo debut.
