|April 22, 2002 - Sonicnet: Queens of the Stone Age (with Dave Grohl) Line Up Tour
by Joe D'Angelo
While their new album remains months away, Queens of the Stone Age are preparing to hit the highway to test drive some new material, and they're taking Dave Grohl along for the ride.
A month after their performance at this weekend's Coachella Festival, the Queens will use the roadwork that begins May 27 in Atlanta to rouse anticipation for their third album, Songs for the Deaf, due in mid-July. Dave Grohl, who has put off finishing the fourth Foo Fighters opus to tour with Queens, rounds out a lineup that also includes singer Josh Homme, bassist Nick Oliveri and guitarist Mark Lanegan, according to an Interscope spokesperson.
The Queens are also scheduled to hit the road following these dates, with opening band ... And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead in tow, though an itinerary has yet to be solidified.
