As this chapter closes, I will be opening another chapter of my rock life soon. I may be done with KROQ, but I am not retiring. I hope you continue to join me on that journey. I have the greatest fans of all time and you’ve made my time at KROQ a fantastic one.”

Speaking to New Zealand radio station Rock FM, Josh Homme discussed the forthcoming Queens of the Stone Age album. “I feel like we’re just leaning on the gate waiting for someone to open that sucker up so we can move,” Homme said. “I think the record feels that way too — it feels uptempo.” He added: “At the end of the day, this is just a musical way to explain a lifetime. So the most important record I’m making is the one I’m working on. For the lack of a better term, I bet my life on it. If you don’t risk anything, you’re not gonna get anything. I don’t want to copy myself, I just want to take another chance at it. It keeps it always exciting that way.” A full release date has not been set.
