Queens of the Stone Age
Queens of the Stone Age are having a little fun with the media leading up to the release of their next album. Singer Josh Homme and band took the time to write up a missive on their forthcoming release for Mojo magazine, admitting a little bit of the pretention that comes with quotes hyping an album.
Queens of the Stone Age are working hard to finish up their first new album since 2007's 'Era Vulgaris,' and singer Josh Homme says it's not exactly been the easiest disc to put together but that he thinks the end result will provide a "deeper," "richer" and "stranger" listening experience.
Dave Grohl is heading back behind the drumkit for Queens of the Stone Age, and he says one of the things the experience provides is freedom from restrictions. The Foo Fighters leader told BBC Radio 1 (via NME) that he's really enjoying backing up old pal Josh Homme and that the musical chemistry is undeniable.
Musical mastermind Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails and How to Destroy Angels recently took part in an open Q&A session on Reddit.com. Reznor participated in an 'AMA' session, which means, "Ask Me Anything." With no barriers in place, fans submitted a mass of questions, which led to some insightful revelations from Reznor, including news that he has been helping out Josh Homme with a new Queens of the Stone Age song.
