Coming not too long after the amazing news that Dave Grohl and Trent Reznor were set to appear on the upcoming Queens of the Stone Age album, a post on Mondo Generator’s Facebook earlier today made it quite clear and simple: that band’s frontman, Nick Oliveri, will make a return to QOTSA via a song on their new album. The update stated:
“NEWS: Nick has re-joined Kyuss, and has recently recorded his vocals on a new Queens of the Stone Age song! Stay tuned.”
Oliveri previously played bass and sang for QOTSA until 2004, when some turmoil got him fired from the band – as he explained in a detailed interview with Antiquiet. After all these years, it’s nice to see that Nick Oliveri and QOTSA frontman Josh Homme are finally working together on some extent – though a reader reminds us that Homme was featured on a Mondo Generator track this year, already hinting at what could come in the future.
The other bit of surprising news comes from the fact that Oliveri has re-joined Kyuss Lives!, after the legal shitstorm that went on earlier this year. Though the bassist claimed that getting into a court battle with a band is a way to ensure that they will “never” play together again, it seems that he’s back on the group.
Until more details are released, stay with this absolute classic:
