Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl will perform on Queens Of The Stone Age's new album, with Josh Homme revealing drummer Joey Castillo has left the band.

The front man confirmed that Grohl would drum on the release, during an interview with Radio 1's Zane Lowe.

The pair have teamed up before with the ex-Nirvana man playing on their QOTSA's 2002 album Songs For The Deaf.

The rockers also collaborated for their side project Them Crooked Vultures with John Paul Jones.

'Wonderful'

Homme said: "[Grohl] and I have this wonderful musical relationship which we don't have with other people. It's a very cool and comfortable position."

Homme revealed the band were close to finishing their sixth studio album, which is due to be released in 2013.

It's not clear whether Grohl will join the band on tour.

He announced recently that Foo Fighters were to take a break after 18 months of promoting their album 2011 album Wasting Light.

Last month Grohl said: "It's a good thing for all of us to go away for a while. It's one of the reasons we're still here."

Earlier this week Queens Of The Stone Age were among the acts confirmed for next year's Download festival in June.
