QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE has posted a “mockumentary”, apparently inspired by “This Is Spinal Tap”, in which they give fans a sneak peek into the making of the band’s next studio album. The nine-minute“Secrets Of The Sound” segment, hosted by Matt Berry and Steve Agee, can be seen below.

FOO FIGHTERS frontman Dave Grohl, who plays drums on the upcomingQUEENS OF THE STONE AGE studio set, recently confirmed that he will not be part of the QUEENS touring lineup. Grohl played drums on theQUEENS‘ 2002 album, “Songs For The Deaf”, and did go on a short club tour with the group before returning to active duty with the FOOS — who took QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE out as support.

There’s no release date or title for the new QUEENS OF THE STONE AGEalbum yet, although it’s expected to surface in early 2013.

The band is said to be auditioning drummers now. Grohl stepped in for the recording sessions after the group parted ways with longtime drummerJoey Castillo.

QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE‘s fifth album, “Era Vulgaris”, came out in June 2007 and entered the Billboard chart at No. 14.

QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE commemorated the reissue of its classic 1998 debut with a limited series of intimate shows at which the band played the record in its entirety, plus B-sides and other rarities and hits from the early QUEENS catalog up to the present.
