Queens Of The Stone Age are busy in the studio working on their sixth album.

Posting on the band's official Facebook page, Josh Homme said they were "deep into makin' new album," with a release day expected early next year.

He wrote:

Locked away in the desert. & shit yeah. it. sounds. fuckin. killer.



Talking earlier this year, the QOTSA frontman said the long-awaited sixth studio album would be done by the end of 2011.

"We're at a weird moment where we really don't feel like we have anything to prove," he told Radio 1. "We just want to play to the people that are into us and we want to play right at them."

The band marked the recent reissue of its classic 1998 eponymous debut with a limited series of intimate shows.

Queens guitarist Dean Fertita had previously said sessions for the follow-up to 2007's 'Era Vulgaris' were going well.

"We've got so many ideas started already," he said.

"I guess we'll see what turns out to be everybody's favorite. It's very much still Homme's band, but I think all of us really feel like we've found our space in it and can contribute to it as well."
