The iTunes release will include four bonus demos from the band’s recording session. You can pick King Animal up next week.
Dave "behind the drums"
It’s kick ass news on the Queens of the Stone Age front—Dave Grohl will be joining the band for their new album slapping some skins. It was revealed by Queens front man Josh Homme that Grohl would be behind the drum set in the studio, just as he was back in 2002 for Songs for the Deaf. The band also posted a pick to Twitter of Dave in studio behind the drum set. No word on when that album is expected.
