Former Queens Of The Stone Age bassist Nick Oliveri has apparently teamed up with his old band to help out with their forthcoming new album.

Oliveri was fired from Queens Of The Stone Age in 2004 after allegations of domestic violence, but it was revealed earlier today (November 28) – via the Facebook page for Oliveri's band Mondo Generator – that he has recorded vocals for a new QOTSA song. The post states:

NEWS: Nick has re-joined Kyuss, and has recently recorded his vocals on a new Queens of the Stone Age song! Stay tuned.


In August Oliveri avoided a potential 15-year jail sentence for charges relating to domestic violence, firearm and drug offences.

He negotiated a deal that meant he would be sentenced to three years of felony probation and serve 200 hours of community service and 52 weeks of anger management sessions.

Queens Of The Stone Age are currently working on their sixth LP, the follow-up to 2007's Era Vulgaris. Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor is working on a song for the album and Dave Grohl will also be lending a hand on the LP.

After announcing that the Foo Fighters will be on a temporary hiatus, the frontman is now filling in for drummer Joey Castillo, who has left the band.

Meanwhile, Queens Of The Stone Age have been confirmed as headliners for next years' Open'er festival in Poland and will also play Download Festival.
