Queens of the Stone Age has been hard at work on the band’s new album, and as it turns out, that new set will feature a bevy of major names. ZZ Top singer Billy Gibbons has revealed that he has signed on to appear on the new album, explaining his involvement to Eonmusic at Hellfest in France.

Gibbons also revealed that Foo Fighters frontman and Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl has been working with Queens of the Stone Age on new music and will appear on the upcoming album.

“Just one month ago I was making a record with Queens of the Stone Age,” Gibbons said, “and Dave Grohl was also taking part and he decided to have a big barbecue. So there was this interesting gathering. So, we spent one hour telling stories, great stories remembering these lovely guys.”

Just to be sure, Gibbsons clarified that he was working on the new Queens of the Stone Age record, not one of Homme’s side projects, saying, “I was talking with Josh just yesterday, and I was very excited.”

So, when will this new album be out? According to Gibbons, soon. “He’s completed it,” Gibbsons said. “I think that he said he wants to put it out Halloween. It’ll be good.”

Queens of the Stone Age’s upcoming album will mark their follow-up to 2017’s “Villains.”
