Riding high from the success of Queens the Stone Age ’s first #1 album on the Billboard 200, …Like Clockwork , frontman Josh Homme says he’s ready to head back into the studio.
"I think we should make a record right away -- but I think we'll know when that is," he tells Billboard . The singer adds that while he has a plan in mind for the group’s next album, he’d prefer to keep the details secret. "The future is always out there,” he notes. “Isn't that the minimum obligation of a band, to try to enthrall and surprise and, with as much mystery as possible, appear to its fans.”
Homme says that he’s thrilled with the way …Like Clockwork turned out, and that the band grew closer during the recording process. "[ …Like Clockwork is] the tightest, bond-wise across the board, we've ever been,” he explains. “Everyone trusts each other. Everybody has each other's backs, and I think that solidarity really helped to sort of stabilize the sort of more vulnerable moments of the record."
QOTSA is currently on tour overseas, but the band will return to North America for an appearance at the Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago, IL, on August 2.
