Queens of the Stone Age ‘Embrace Evil’ for Album

Queens of the Stone AgeQueens of the Stone Age "embraced" their "evil" on their new album. The band sent a cryptic handwritten note to the UK's Kerrang! magazine in which they talk about the conditions surrounding the making of their sixth studio album.

"Some things you can't fix so... On this record we came to a realization: the best trick of all, is no trick at all. The songs are a real time document of the manic ups and downs of the last year. It can't always run like clockwork. So rather than control the direction of the recordings, we decided to ride shotgun on our emotional bandwagon. We embraced our evil, held the horrible, licked the lunacy and blew the beautiful. As a result, we're on cloud 9. I can't write anymore cause my phone's dying, Queens of the Stone Age," the message read.

The 43-year-old drummer - who rose to fame in Nirvana - will play drums on their sixth studio LP following the departure of Joey Castillo from the band, frontman Josh Homme has confirmed. It is not the first time he has worked on an album from the band, having previously drummed on 2002's Songs for the Deaf.

Eagles of Death Metal star Jesse Hughes recently revealed some details about the new Queens of the Stone Age album, saying fans had a lot to look forward to: "The s**t I've heard from the new Queens album is so badass. It's really cool. It's the kinda s**t that makes John Holmes [legendary porn star] have a bigger d**k and he's dead, so that's pretty rad."

The band have not released new material since 2007's Era Vulgaris.
