Dave Grohl Joins Q.O.T.S.A for Upcoming Album

Dave Grohl Joins Q.O.T.S.A for Upcoming Album -

Queens Of The Stone Age
's forthcoming album will once again feature the drumming prowess of Dave Grohl, according the band's frontman Josh Homme

The Foo Fighters head will be filling in for Joey Castillo, who has been a member of the stoner-rock mavericks since replacing Grohl on the European leg of the 'Songs of the Deaf' tour back in 2002.

Speaking to Radio 1's Zane Lowe, Homme said:

"[Grohl] and I have this wonderful musical relationship which we don't have with other people. It's a very cool and comfortable position."

Q.O.T.S.A took to the social media universe to post a picture on their Facebook fan-page page revealing Grohl's name on a mixing desk next to Hommes. 

Speaking to NME, Jesse Huges, who fronts Hommes second band Eagles of Death Metal,  said the new Queens material he has heard is "really cool."

Hughes said:

"The shit I've heard from the new Queens album is so badass. It's really cool. It's the kinda shit that makes John Holmes [legendary porn star] have a bigger dick and he's dead, so that's pretty rad."

Queens of the Stone Age are currently finishing up work on what will be their sixth studio album. 

In related news the band yesterday (Nov.5) announced that they will be playing Download Festival for the first time next summer. The hard rock & metal Festival will take place from June 14-16 2013 at Donington Park.
