Queens Of The Stone Age deny March 2013 album release plans
The follow-up to 2007's 'Era Vulgaris' will still be released next year
NME contacted the band's management after a reported missive from the band – via FACT magazine – stated that the follow-up to 2007's 'Era Vulgaris' would come out in the spring.
Management denied any knowledge of the image which said that the band's new album would be released in March, 2013.
Josh Homme recently said that the songs he has recorded with Dave Grohl for the sixth Queens Of The Stone Age album "sound like running in a dream".
The frontman, who recruited Grohl to play drums on the album after Joey Castillo left the band, was speaking to Zane Lowe as part of an interview broadcast on BBC Radio 1.
Homme said: "I think this record is a little more lyrically vulnerable, but I also think it's sort of musically deeper and richer, and it's a little bit stranger."
Homme later added that there are "a lot of struggles going on", with the recording but that: "This record basically sounds like you're running in a dream the whole time."
It has been confirmed that both Trent Reznor and former bassist Nick Oliveri have also been recording with the band.
Queens Of The Stone Age 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.
