Queens Of The Stone Age's Josh Homme has said he would like to make a follow-up to the band's new album '…Like Clockwork' "right away".

The band have only released their sixth studio album earlier this month (June 3), but the frontman told Billboard that he fancied the idea of working on a new LP as soon as possible – although he did say that he would "know" when the time was right.

He said: "I think we should make a record right away – but I think we'll know when that is. The future is always out there, isn't it? As soon as everyone looks to the left, we'll show up from the right hand side. I mean, that's what we're supposed to do, right?

"Isn't that the minimum obligation of a band, to try to enthral and surprise and with as much mystery as possible, appear to its fans. We're supposed to walk first; we're not supposed to take a CNN poll."

Earlier this week, Queens Of The Stone Age have announced details of a UK and Ireland November tour. Starting in Glasgow on November 16, they will then visit Dublin, Belfast, Manchester and Birmingham before ending in London with a headline date on Wembley Arena on November 22.

Queens of the Stone Age will play:

Glasgow - Hydro Arena (November 16)
Dublin - O2 Arena (17)
Belfast - Odyssey (18)
Manchester - MEN Arena (20)
Birmingham - NIA (21)
London - Wembley Arena (22)
