Keyboardist Dean Fertita revealed that the band are "ready to go" on what will be the follow-up to 2007's 'Era Vulgaris'.
"Everybody seems excited and ready to go," Fertita told Billboard. "We've got so many ideas started already; I guess we'll see what turns out to be everybody's favorite."
"It's very much still [Josh Homme's] band," he continued. "But I think all of us really feel like we've found our space in it and can contribute to it as well."
A release date and title for the group's sixth studio effort has yet to be announced.
Meanwhile, the band recently reissued their 1998 self-titled debut album and earlier this year also released a 10th anniversary edition of their second LP, 'Rated R'.
