Loose lips sink ships, and bring us news of impending album releases in 2017.
During an interview with Rolling Stone about his Gone Is Gone project with Queens of the Stone Age’s Troy Van Leeuwen, Mastodon’s Troy Sanders spilled the beans about a new album from QOTSA. “I like to think none of us needs this band, but we all really want this band. When that’s the mentality, this is special to the four of us,” Sanders said. “Otherwise, we wouldn’t dedicate the first week of 2017 to working on this band. For example, Queens of the Stone Age, Mastodon and At the Drive-In have all been recording, and we all have new records coming out this year.”
In 2016 QOTSA frontman Josh Homme stated that a new record from QOTSA was “next up” on his schedule, so today is further confirmation that we’ll be hearing from the band this year.
