Dave Grohl Will Drum On New Queens Of The Stone Age Album

Written by Marc Zanotti on November 7, 2012

Queens of the Stone Age jefe Josh Homme revealed that Foo Fighter frontman Dave Grohl will be back behind the drums for the new QOTSA album. As reported by Consequence of Sound, Homme dropped the news during a recent interview with Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1.

Grohl’s reprised role as QOSTA drummer comes after the departure of long-standing QOTSA member Joey Castillo. According to Antiquiet, the reasons for Castillo’s split from the band are currently unclear, but whatever led to his exit, it left the door open for Grohl’a return while the Foo Fighters are temporarily on hiatus.

Although Homme and Grohl worked together as Them Crooked Vultures in 2009, this will be the first time Grohl has lent his ample drumming skills to a QOTSA record since 2002’s Songs for the Deaf. The currently untitled LP is expected sometime next year, but for now QOTSA have posted a photograph of a mixing board that may leave you salivating at the possibilities of what’s to come.
