Exciting news on the QOTSA front! Last time we updated on the band, they were in the studio recording their new album, the first since 2007, when they released Era Vulgaris. With Dave Grohl on the drums, lead singer and guitarist Josh Homme has stated that the new songs “sound like running in a dream” (source: NME). Adding to that may be the fact that Trent Reznor is also in the studio recording with the band.
What’s exciting is that we now have a release time frame for the album. The new tunes will hit the general public during the month of March. There are no specifics yet as to the exact date, but fans can now circle the whole month of March as they wait for the release.
