Scissor Sisters' Jake Shears working with Queens Of The Stone Age?
Scissor Sisters frontman Jake Shears is seemingly working with Queens Of The Stone Age.

The singer Tweeted a picture of himself with the band, which you can see below, with the accompanying message: "Jake Shears + Queens of the Stone Age = satanic cabaret." However, it's not known for definite whether he will feature on the band's forthcoming new album, or if they are working together on another project.



Shears has spoken about his love for the Josh Homme-fronted group in the past. In September of last year, he said he was eager to sing on the band's new album, stating: "It'd be a dream collaboration, bec­ause I’m a huge fan. I really, really want to sing on the next QOTSA album. I'm desperate for it. And he's [Homme] a fan of our band too, as unlikely as that might be. I think he's a genius, a genuine rock hero living among us."

If Shears is working with the band on their LP, he'll join other names already confirmed for recording sessions including Nine Inch Nails main man Trent Reznor and Foo Fighters singer Dave Grohl, who will play drums on the album after Joey Castillo left the band. The band's former bassist, Nick Oliveri, has also been recording with the group again.

Earlier this week (December 20), Queens Of The Stone Age denied reports that the album will be released in March of 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, but they denied any knowledge of the rumour.

Speaking about the album, meanwhile, 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."

He 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.
