Thursday, 29 November
Queens Of The Stone Age have reunited with Nick Oliveri for their new album. He and frontman Josh Homme infamously fell out after the bassist was arrested for domestic violence in 2004. However there appears to be some thawing in relationship with Oliveri announcing his involvement in the record, which features Dave Grohl on drums, via his band Mondo Generator. "Nick has re-joined Kyuss, and has recently recorded his vocals on a new Queens of the Stone Age song! Stay tuned," the group announced yesterday. The Queens album is due out next year.
The Strokes Julian Casablancas has launched his own record label, Cult Records. His first release will be The Virgins second album Strike Gently, which will be released on March 12.

"I think they've made a classic record and we're really excited they chose to work with us."
