Them Crooked Vultures Confirm Release Date, Reveal Track Titles
Its official. The self-titled debut from Them Crooked Vultures, the rock and roll supergroup to end all rock and roll supergroups, featuring Queens of the Stone Age‘s Josh Homme, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, and Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones, will be unleashed upon the world come Nov. 17. Additionally, they’ve released the track listing for the album.
‘New Fang’ will arrive at the nation’s rock radio stations on Oct. 26, and is a programming no-brainer, considering the band members’ histories. It goes without saying that this has become one of the most buzzed-about rock releases since Guns N’ Roses‘ ‘Chinese Democracy.’
Them Crooked Vultures recently wrapped their Deserve the Future Tour in Manhattan. It was the band’s first North American tour. According to Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, who claims to have heard the Them Crooked Vultures LP, “It’s really great. I’m really proud of Dave, and I think he’s having a real blast not having to shake his booty at the front of the stage for a while, you know?”
Them Crooked Vultures was first hatched back in 2005, but the band didn’t start recording until this summer. Noisecreep has a full review of the band’s New York City gig, during which Homme apologized repeatedly for unloading so much new music on the audience.
