Them Crooked Vultures Prepping Second LP
It’s been little more than four months since rock ‘n’ roll supergroup Them Crooked Vultures released their eponymous debut, and now it looks like fans of the band — which features Dave Grohl on drums, Josh Homme behind the mic and John Paul Jones on bass — won’t have to wait long for a second helping of Vulture. According to a recent interview, Jones claims Them Crooked Vultures are already planning to record their second album, which could be in stores later this year.
“We’ll do a second album this year,” Jones says. “By the end of summer, something like that … We’re all hard workers. In a way we need to do this for ourselves. Once we committed to it, we worked as hard as a young band would, put the hours in. It’s got to be good — we’ve got reputations to uphold more than anything else.”
This follows Homme’s recent revelation that a sophomore studio effort was on the way. “We love playing in this [band]. We have such a good time together, and it’s fun and it feels like we’re obligated to risk and challenge ourselves,” he said.
This weekend, Them Crooked Vultures will be in New York to appear as the musical guests on NBC’s ‘Saturday Night Live.’ The Vultures will wrap up their current tour on Feb. 8 at New York City’s Roseland Ballroom, and are set to play Coachella on April 16.
