Josh Homme has been talking about the new Queens of the Stone Age album

It’s apparently “uptempo”, “risky” and their “best” yet!

Back in March, Queens of the Stone Age collaborator Mark Lanegan spilled the beans that the band were finished working on the follow-up to 2013’s ‘… Like Clockwork’. Since then, we haven’t heard much at all about the mysterious new record, except for when they posted a very cryptic teaser, ‘Coming Twenty Five’, back in April. We’re still no further in discovering what that actually means, but Josh Homme has been talking about the new album in an interview with New Zealand’s Rock FM. Josh said the new LP would be “uptempo” and “risky”, and that it might also be their “best” yet. Ooh er! He also gave an epic description of how he’s feeling in advance of the record’s release, saying that he’s “sort of like a panther in the trees leaping out of the darkness” that is “ready to pounce”. “I think we’re just leaning on the gate waiting for someone to open that sucker up so we can move”, he added. He continued: “At the end of the day, this is just a musical way to explain a lifetime. So the most important record I’m making is the one I’m working on. For the lack of a better term, I bet my life on it. If you don’t risk anything, you’re not gonna get anything. I don’t want to copy myself, I just want to take another chance at it. It keeps it always exciting that way.” All this teasing is just turning us into panthers waiting to pounce on the new album too…
