Dave Grohl, Josh Homme and John Paul Jones have told 6 Music Them Crooked Vultures is not just a short term project for them.

When asked about plans to record a follow up to the supergroup's debut album, Josh Homme said: "Hope so yeah, there isn't a reason not to.

" We love playing in this (band)" the Queen's of The Stone Age frontman explained. "We have such a good time together and it's fun and it feels like we're obligated to risk and challenge ourselves.

"It's such a rewarding risk to take you know, it's like high tension wire."
Them Crooked Vultures have got a busy few months ahead of them. Earlier this week, the supergroup were announced on the line-up for this year's series of gigs in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust.

The band will kick off nine consecutive nights on Monday 22 March at the Royal Albert Hall.

Noel Gallagher, Arctic Monkeys and The Who are also on the bill, tickets will go on sale on Friday.

"There isn't a reason not to. We have such a good time together and it's fun."

They have also signed up for Coachella in April before returning to the UK to play Download Festival at Donington Park in June.

No doubt there will be a few more festival appearances for the band as it seems Dave Grohl is getting a real buzz from performing live with Them Crooked Vultures.

"As we've done these shows I see the audiences and how excited they get" he said. "If we go off in to some crazy jam that goes on for 10 minutes too long, you see the audience as it resolves into this finale.

"When you finally get there and you see people get goose bumps, you finally tie it up in a bow and go 'bam.' People just go 'wow' and it's great."

With all the rumours surrounding this year's Glastonbury line-up, let us throw another one in there, Them Crooked Vultures perhaps?

It's a maybe from Dave Grohl: "I don't know, we haven't even talked about it, I know we're going to come back and do some shows at some point."
