Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme has revealed that Dave Grohl will be drumming on the band's forthcoming new album.

The Foo Fighters man is filling in for Joey Castillo, who has left the band according to Homme, who broke the news this evening (November 6) on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show.

Grohl has long had close ties with Queens Of The Stone Age, drumming on the band's 2002 album, 'Songs For The Deaf'. The band also posted a picture on their Facebook page, showing Grohl's name on the mixing desk - pictured.

Speaking to Zane Lowe, Homme said: "[Grohl] and I have this wonderful musical relationship which we don't have with other people. It's a very cool and comfortable position."

Queens Of The Stone Age yesterday (November 5) revealed that they will be playing Download Festival for the first ever time next summer. Download Festival will take place from June 14-16 2013 at Donington Park.

Eagles Of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes recently said that the forthcoming Queens Of The Stone Age album is "badass".

Speaking to NME, Josh Homme's Eagles Of Death Metal bandmate added that the material he's heard from the follow-up to 2007's 'Era Vulgaris' is "really cool". Hughes said: "The shit I've heard from the new Queens album is so badass. It's really cool. It's the kinda shit that makes John Holmes [legendary porn star] have a bigger dick and he's dead, so that's pretty rad."

Queens Of The Stone Age are currently finishing up work on what will be their sixth studio album.
