Queens Of The Stone Age have denied that their follow up album to 'Era Vulgaris' is to be released in March next year.

Earlier this week it was reported that the band would be releasing their new album in March. NME has reported that the band's management have since denied any knowledge of this claim.

The American rock band ushered in the help of Foo Fighters' frontman Dave Grohl on drums for their sixth album, after their own drummer Joey Castillo left the band. Grohl is no stranger to the band, having also helped out on Queens Of The Stone Age's third album 'Songs for the Deaf'.

Queens of the Stone Age will play Download Festival this June

Homme has previously spoken to Radio 1 about their upcoming album, saying:

"I think this record is a little more lyrically vulnerable, but I also think it's sort of musically deeper and richer, and it's a little bit stranger. This record basically sounds like you're running in a dream the whole time."

Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor has also been confirmed as having recorded with the band, as well as former Queens Of The Stone Age bassist Nick Oliveri. The band are set to make their first appearance at Download Festival next year, where they'll join the likes of Stone Sour.
