Queens Of The Stone Age‘s Josh Homme and Iggy Pop (famed for being Iggy Pop) have teamed up to record an album, which is coming out in March according to The New York Times.
If that was star-studded enough for you, Artic Monkey‘s Drummer Matt Helders (the man who once wore a Royal Blood T-shirt) and Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age and the Dead Weather) make up the rest of the band.
‘Post Pop Depression‘, the band’s nine-track debut is out March 18th and, according to Iggy, asks “What happens after your years of service? And where is the honor?”
“It was made to be heard,” he explains. “Not to be some quirky thing that we did with our own money.”
“This was to go where neither of us had gone before. That was the agreement. And to go all the way,” adds Josh.
The band are planning a brief tour in march, with everyone on record performing alongside QOTSA guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen and Matt Sweeney on bass. Josh explains “There won’t be hardly any shows, and they won’t be in big places, and you won’t be able to get a ticket. So almost everyone won’t see it. It will be like trying to catch smoke in your hands. And that makes it even better. It will be special, and it will be over in the blink of an eye.”
The band are also set to perform Live on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert tonight (January 21st).
