Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme suggests in the newest issue of Rolling Stone that we won't have to wait very long for the follow-up to June's ...Like Clockwork.
We have more than enough songs. We're booked til September, but after that we plan to jump in the studio and get going...When it's time to make music, that's about getting lost for me. 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. As long as you're not in an orgy, that can be an amazing moment.

You can also check out the band's recent hour-long performance on "Austin City Limits" over on the PBS website.
