Fans have been patiently waiting for Queens of the Stone Age to follow up their 2007 release Era Vulgaris and on the verge of this new year the band has announced that they have a lot of new ideas and are ready to go.  Time is of the essence with Josh Homme’s involvement in supergroup Them Crooked Vultures and Dean Fertita’s part in The Dead Weather but hopefully all the stars will allign in 2011!

“Everybody seems excited and ready to go,” keyboard player Dean Fertita told Billboard.com. “We’ve got so many ideas started already; I guess we’ll see what turns out to be everybody’s favorite.”

“It’s very much still [Homme’s] band,” Fertita said. “But I think all of us really feel like we’ve found our space in it and can contribute to it as well.”
