[FMQB.com] Them Crooked Vultures' much-anticipated self-titled debut album arrives in stores today, and on Monday night, the super group of Josh Homme, Dave Grohl and John Paul Jones played to a packed crowd of 400, crammed in to the Roxy in Los Angeles to celebrate its release. Tickets to the surprise gig were available strictly at the box office the day of the show. The band played all 13 songs on their album, along with unreleased song "Highway 1," reports Antiquiet.com. TCV will play Los Angeles, Oakland, Seattle and Portland, OR over the next week, then head to Europe for the first half of December. The band will then play Australia and New Zealand in late January.
In addition to the actual album being released today, lead single "New Fang" is also now available as a downloadable song for Rock Band.
As previously reported, Explore Music's Alan Cross interviewed the band on Friday, where John Paul Jones denied any rumors of a Led Zeppelin reunion at the Glastonbury Festival next summer. You can more read about Cross' visit to the Vultures' HQ HERE and HERE.
Them Crooked Vultures have also debuted a new video online, as a trailer for the album's release, which can be viewed below:
