Debut Album Out Fall 2009

Them Crooked Vultures–Dave Grohl (drums, backing vocals), Josh Homme (guitar, vocals) and John Paul Jones (bass, keyboards, backing vocals)–has added dates in New York, Germany, Australia and New Zealand, extending the band’s first ever tour through January 2010.

The dates kick off with an October 2 performance at the Austin City Limits music festival, to be preceded by a September 30 Austin City Limits TV taping to air at a later date TBD, as well as an appearance at the October 1 Austin City Limits festival pre-party.

To date, Them Crooked Vultures has played one show on U.S. soil, August 9 at Chicago’s Cabaret Metro. Of that show, the Chicago Sun-Times hailed the band as “one of the rarest things in rock: a supergroup that not only deserves that appellation, but which actually fullskip is greater than the sum of its storied parts,” while the Chicago Tribune opined “The term ’supergroup’ gets thrown around way too often in rock, but in the case of Them Crooked Vultures, it applies.” The band recently wrapped a string of surprise appearances across Europe and the UK, of which the Times of London remarked “the sound climbed to super-threatening levels and the music new heights of heaviosity…this was a monster on the loose” and the Sun added “there were moments of gentleness too – including some mesmerising piano work from Jones.”

No release date for Them Crooked Vultures’ debut album has been set as yet. Previews of the tracks “Scumbag Blues,” “Elephants” and “Nobody Loves Me And Neither Do I,” as well as several high quality unofficial live clips can be seen at
