Last week was a big one for ALT fans spanning a pair of decades. Whether your poison lands in classic 90s angst or the energetic Emo of the 2000s, there was something for everyone when Jersey's own My Chemical Romance announced their 'Return' show, officially reuniting the band onstage for the first time since 2012 for a (so far anyway) single show at LA's Shrine theater.  As if that wasn't enough, hot on their heels, Rage Against The Machine followed suit cryptically revealing a run of shows along the southwest border of the United States before seemingly confirming themselves as Coachella's first confirmed headliner in 2020 (for which Frank Ocean is also heavily rumored).

So now that we have two of the most clamored for reunions in the bank, who's next on the docket? Possibly, according to Queens Of The Stone Age Frontman, Josh Homme, his supergroup Them Crooked Vultures, which also boasts Nirvana's Dave Grohl on drums and Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones on bass.

"We all want to do another Vultures record", Homme revealed in a recent Rolling Stone interview.  That said, he claims it's not entirely up to him, pointing to Grohl as the group's ringleader and elaborating, "I think everyone has certain roles they play in the Vultures, and in all honesty, I feel like part of Dave’s role — since he got it together the first time by saying, ‘Hey, do you wanna try this?’ — I feel like that’s part of in his job description in Vultures. I have my various things that I’m supposed to do I think, but that isn’t one of them. But I’m always ready to be in Them Crooked Vultures again. I don’t chase, you know?"

Echoing that enthusiasm, Grohl himself addressed the group over the summer when asked, saying, "Technically we’re still a band.  We practice once every decade, and we’re coming up on another decade, aren’t we? I don’t have any official news but there’s always something cooking.”

Will TCV be the next to reconvene? Well, that remains to be seen, but it certainly seems an inevitability if these two are to be believed. Now to just track down JPJ and get his take... check out footage of the band performing live back in 2010 below.
