Queens Of The Stone Age producer readies side project

And Josh Homme makes an appearance on the record

Queens Of The Stone Age collaborator Chris Goss and Nine Inch Nails bassist Jeordie White aka Goon Moon are preparing for the release of their second album in May.

‘Licker’s Last Legs’ is the follow-up to 205’s ‘I Got A Brand New Egg Layin’ Machine’ and is inspired by the current wave of folk such as Devendra Banhart and Joanna Newsom, as well as a more experimental sound inspired by the likes of Deerhoof.

White (who was known as Twiggy Ramirez in his days as Marilyn Manson’s bassist) and Goss actually wrote much of the music prior to the release of their debut, but just recently added vocals.

Goss has been a long-time collaborator of Josh Homme, having produced three Kyuss records and most recently co-produced the new Queens Of The Stone Age disc ‘Era Vulgaris’. Homme in turn, guests on the Goon Moon album.

‘Licker’s Last Legs’ is released May 8.
