Queens Of The Stone Age have been pretty reliable in putting out a new record every few years, and since their last album, VILLAINS was back in 2017, maybe we’re due for a new one!

ZZ TOP legend, Billy Gibbons, was recently giving an interview at this years HELLFEST 2019, in France, and may have let slip that a new record is on it’s way, but probably not from QOTSA.

He's completed it. I think that he said he wants to put it out on Halloween. It'll be good.

Josh Homme has had a side project for over 20 years, a project that has seen some amazing artists collaborate with the QOTSA frontman, and so far spawned 10 records between 1997 and 2003. The last LP being Volume 10: ‘I Heart Disco’ released in September 2003.

Billy Gibbons of ZZ TOP responded to a question by EonMusic during the Hellfest interview, stating “Just one month ago I was making a record with Queens of the Stone Age...and Dave Grohl was also taking part and he decided to have a big barbecue. So there was this interesting gathering. So, we spent one hour telling stories, great stories remembering these lovely guys...We had gone to the desert to work on just a couple of tracks”

Back in May, QOTSA posted on their instagram account with the caption “I wonder if anyone’s been recording in the desert? I dunno. I just, Don’t“ hinting that Josh Homme had been using”, referring to at Rancho De La Luna, a house in Joshua Tree, California where the majority of previous Desert Session album had been recorded.
