Published Jul 18, 2014Musician Nick Oliveri has had quite a fascinating life since being fired from Queens of the Stone Age in 2004. He joined and quit the controversial Kyuss Lives! project, fronted his own band Mondo Generator, then re-teamed with both QOTSA and Kyuss Lives! in 2012. And that doesn't include the time he had a standoff with a SWAT team over a domestic dispute. Today, the busy and impressive man has announced his sophomore solo album.
Fitting in with his decidedly antisocial past, the album's called Leave Me Alone. It follows 2004's Demolition Day, which was a vinyl-only LP.
Leave Me Alone sees Oliveri mostly working alone, as he served as the album's producer and played most instruments on the record. He did recruit some friends for the project too, however, as the LP features guest guitar work from Motörhead's Phil Campbell, Kyuss Lives!'s Bruno Fevery, Dwarves members Marc Diamond and Blag Dahlia, and Dean Ween.
Leave Me Alone will arrive in September via Schnitzel Records.
