With Dave Grohl previously announced to have taken up drumming duties in the studio following the departure of Joey Castillo, and Nick Oliveri also getting himself involved in the sessions, it means the QOTSA line-up which produced the modern rock classic ‘Songs For The Deaf‘ will all feature on the album.
The news was revealed via Queens Of The Stone Age’s social networks with a short message that read: “Lanegan came by. He didn’t say much, but he sang good. Troy Van Leeuwen said to Dean Fertita as overheard by Mikey Shoes.”
Dave Grohl discussed his sporadic musical partnership with Josh Homme during a chat with Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1 last November, commenting that: “With Queens of the Stone Age there were no boundaries with that band, there were no limits with them, it was like if you did something insane, you’d do more.”
