Josh Homme says Queens of the Stone Age will get started on their next studio album after touring wraps up later this year

Queens of the Stone Age have been on the road pretty much ever since the release of their latest album, 2013’s “…Like Clockwork.” Frontman Josh Homme says that when the guys are finished touring later this year, the next thing on their agenda is starting work on their next studio album.

“We have more than enough songs [for our next album],” Homme said in an interview with Rolling Stone. “We’re booked [until] September, but after that we plan to jump in the studio and get going.”

Homme explained that being in the studio is a one-of-a-kind feeling. It involves letting go on and letting the music take over. “When it’s time to make music, that’s about getting lost for me,” he explains. “To be a control freak is not half as good as being a freak who’s casually in control. You’re feeling around in the dark for something that feels good…that can be an amazing moment.”

Queens of the Stone Age are set to kick off their next round of North American tour dates on Jan. 30 at the Memorial Auditorium in Raleigh, N.C. The band’s full upcoming itinerary is available on Queens of the Stone Age’s official website.
