Reunited Kyuss Lives! to make new album in 2011

Singer John Garcia also says he hasn't asked Josh Homme to rejoin band

Kyuss‘ reunited incarnation Kyuss Lives! are planning to extend their reunion and make a new album together.

The band have already announced a European tour set for next spring, but have been spurred on to make a new studio album because initial rehearsals went so well.

Singer John Garcia told Rock Sound: “Our rehearsals are going so well that we’re thinking of doing another record… Brant [Bjork], Nick [Oliveri] and myself have collectively agreed that once everything is done live and we’re done with our solo projects, we’re going to do another record.”


Garcia said that the reunion does not include original Kyuss guitarist Josh Homme because the Queens Of The Stone Age frontman is too busy with other things.

“He [Homme] has Them Crooked Vultures, Queens Of The Stone Age,” he said. “He’s a father, a businessman and even if we asked him to do it I don’t think he’d say yes, so I don’t want to set myself up for a big fat no which is 99.9 per cent what he would say.”

Kyuss Lives! will play the following UK dates:

Nottingham Rock City (March 31)
Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall (April 1)
London HMV Forum (2/3)
Glasgow O2 Academy (4)
Manchester Academy (5)
Bristol O2 Academy (6)
