Queens Of The Stone Age, helmed by Josh Homme, will enter the studio to begin recording their next album in January, which will follow 2007′s barnstorming Era Vulgaris. Keyboardist Dean Fertita, who had his own solo work for his project Hello=Fire released in November, told Billboard the band is “ready to go” and has “many ideas started already.”
