Them Crooked Vultures look set to keep circling for a while yet. Despite the vanity project appearance of the hard rock trio, Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme, Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl and Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones are apparently in it for the long haul -- or at least for another album.
"There isn't a reason not to [record a follow up to the band's seft-titled debut," Homme told 6 Music. "We love playing in this [group]. We have such a good time together and it feels like we're obligated to risk and challenge ourselves."
He added, "It's such a rewarding risk to take you know, it's like high tension wire."
The supergroup, which formed last summer and released its album in November, have a series of high-profile gigs lined up for the spring and summer. On Monday, March 22 they will play London's Royal Albert Hall in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust, in April they will hit Southern California for the Coachella festival and then in June they will be appearing at Donington Park, in the East Midlands, as part of this year's Download Festival.
