Them Crooked Vultures’ Self-Titled Album Out November 17th

The burning question that’s lingered since Them Crooked Vultures made their live debut August 9th at Chicago’s Metro has finally been answered: Rock’s newest supergroup announced today that they’ll released their self-produced and self-titled album on November 17th, a week and three months after the band of Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme, Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones first appeared onstage together.

After debuting in Chicago, the Vultures went a tour of European venues and festivals before returning to the states for a run of dates that concluded October 15th at New York’s Roseland Ballroom (read our review of the show here). The 13 songs that featured in the band’s live performances will appear in all their studio glory on Them Crooked Vultures, including opening track «No One Loves Me & Neither Do I». The band is rumored to be releasing their official first single «New Fang» to radio October 26th, Blabbermouth reports.

The Vultures will embark on a brief tour of Germany in early December, then continue on to the U.K. for seven shows in eight nights. From there, they flock Down Under for six shows in Australia and New Zealand. Them Crooked Vultures promise to announce more dates following the album’s release.
