ICYMI, Them Crooked Vultures is a musical supergroup that was formed back in 2009, consisting of Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana), Homme (Queens of the Stone Age, Eagles of Death Metal, Kyuss), and John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin).
Josh Homme has now followed suit with bandmate Dave Grohl in dropping tantalising hints of a much-awaited Them Crooked Vultures reunion.
Speaking in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Homme described, “The ironic thing is that we all want to do another Vultures record.”
He went on to say that he thinks each member of Them Crooked Vultures has “certain roles” and that getting the band back together is “part of Dave’s role — since he got it together the first time by saying, ‘Hey, do you wanna try this?’ — I feel like that’s part of in his job description in Vultures.”
“I’m always ready to be in Them Crooked Vultures again. I don’t chase, you know,” he described, before going on to add this heartwarming sentiment:
“I think, ultimately, these things happen when they’re supposed to, and I don’t have much experience in forcing things to happen like that. When you’re playing music, people come together because they want to and not from a sense of need or desperation. I think that’s the best reason to come together.”
The band released their eponymous debut album back in 2009, and they won the 2011 Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance for their track, Fang. The last time they played live was in 2010.
Back in August this year, Grohl dropped hints that we may still see more from the band yet. When speaking to The Guardian, he described that they were “technically still a band.”
He went on to tease: “We practice once every decade, and we’re coming up on another decade aren’t we?”
Come on Dave, get it together.
