Queens Of The Stone Age will finish their sixth studio album later this year, frontman Josh Homme has said.

Speaking on BBC Radio 1, Homme said the band were heading straight back to the studio after they headline The Other Stage at this year’s Glastonbury festival.

Homme said: "We're going to take our one last break that we would get for a month, come back and do Glastonbury, then immediately jump in the studio. Our record will be done by the end of the year. We have enough songs."



Asked about the new direction of the album, Homme said it was unlikely to involve a radical new sound, as the band don’t "feel they have anything to prove." He said: "We're at a weird moment where we really don't feel like we have anything to prove. We just want to play to the people that are into us and we want to play right at them."

The band are booked to do a US tour in July and early August, with Homme indicating that these would be the first live dates where the band didn’t play the whole of their debut album in full, as they have been doing for the last few months.

He said: "I'm not going to lie: I'm sick of doing the first record. We've never played the same set list before."
