Queens Of The Stone Age are currently recording their sixth studio album.
Writing on their official Facebook page, at Facebook.com/QOTSA, the band simply updated their status with the word “Recording”, receiving tens of thousands of ‘likes’ in minutes.
Late last year the band revealed that they had started initial work on a new album. Again, they posted on their Facebook page, with frontman Josh Homme saying that they were “deep into makin’ [the] new album,”.
In December 2011, he wrote: “Locked away in the desert. & shit yeah. it. sounds. fuckin. killer.”
Talking earlier in 2011, the QOTSA frontman said the long-awaited sixth studio album would be done by the end of 2011, however, the album still hasn’t seen the light of day.
“We’re at a weird moment where we really don’t feel like we have anything to prove,” he told Radio 1. “We just want to play to the people that are into us and we want to play right at them.”
Queens guitarist Dean Fertita had previously said sessions for the follow-up to 2007’s ‘Era Vulgaris’ were going well. “We’ve got so many ideas started already,” he said. “I guess we’ll see what turns out to be everybody’s favourite. It’s very much still Homme’s band, but I think all of us really feel like we’ve found our space in it and can contribute to it as well.”
