Queens of the Stone Age appear to have finished the mixing on their forthcoming new album, the band have confirmed.

A photo posted on Facebook showed Josh Homme's band in the studio at Lurssen Mastering in Burbank, California, where they have been working on their seventh studio album.

The caption reads: "Something new brewing. Queens of The Stone Age."

A following Instagram post by Arthur Devereaux of Left Front Door Records, a label launched after the attack on the Bataclan in Paris in 2015, said: "An album just got mixed."

This follows Homme's comments last month that the band had "just finished" recording their new album, having also revealed that the new record will not feature any special guests, and that a single will be out before the band tours Australia in July.

Their last album ...Like Clockwork was released in May 2013 to mostly positive reviews.

Queens of the Stone Age are scheduled to play the following tour dates:

22-25 June – Montebello, QC @ Amnesia Rockfest

13 July – Auckland, NZ @ Logan Campbell

16 July – Darwin, AU @ Convention Center

19 July – Sydney, AU @ Horden Pavilion

20 July – Melbourne, AU @ Festival Hall

22 July – Byron Bay, AU @ Splendour in the Grass

28-30 July – Naeba, JP @ Fuji Rock Festival

11-13 August – San Francisco, CA @ Outside Lands Festival

15-17 September – Chicago, IL @ Riot Fest
