Queens Of The Stone Age’s Josh Homme Talks Plans For New Album, ‘Desert Sessions’ & Secret Project


Queens Of The Stone Age frontman/guitarist, etc. Josh Homme is the focal point of an extensive new piece running over at The piece examines Homme‘s upbringing, his evolution and the various experiences that have led him to today. Various commentary from his close friends is also included, such as Trent Reznor, Nick Oliveri and Dave Grohl—the latter of whom said:

Josh and I are kindred spirits, in that we are entirely focused musically but we don’t give a fuck. In the last 22 years, I found my musical soul mate with Josh. He is definitely the one musician that I’ve connected to the closest of anyone I’ve played with. We have this ESP unspoken language of our own that doesn’t take any discussion.”

During the piece Homme‘s plans for 2015 are also revealed. While on and off recording is already taking place for a new Eagles Of Death Metal album, Homme also soon plans to convene a number of unspecified guests in Joshua Tree for the next ‘Desert Sessions‘ release. After that work will commence on the next Queens Of The Stone Age album. Homme also teased an upcoming secret collaborative project that he was not yet ready to reveal.

Speaking of the year to come he went on to say:

“Next year will be a year of science and collection of ideas. There’s no reason to wait. There’s no reason to be hasty. I’m just moving at a good clip and looking really wide to see if there’s any interesting pathways that seem scary and cool.”

Queens Of The Stone Age are set to wrap up their “…Like Clockwork” touring cycle this month with a Halloween bash in Los Angeles, CA.
