Josh Homme Leeds festival 2017

The Queens Of The Stone Age frontman is set to follow in the footsteps of Tom Hardy and Guy Garvey in reading for the children's programme.

The details of Josh Homme's cBeebies appearance on Bedtime Story has been revealed.

The Queens of the Stone Age frontman first told NME he was appearing on the programme, which helps thousands of tots get off to sleep every evening, and now it has been confirmed what the rocker will read and when.

The  BBC has revealed that the No One Knows singer - who shares three children with fellow rocker Brodie Dalle -  will read Zog by Julia Donaldson, who is also famed for The Gruffalo.

Homme's instalment of the popular British series will air on Friday 6 October at 6.50pm.

In making his appearance the rocker will join the likes of Chris Evans, Suranne Jones, Tom Hardy, Jessica Ennis-Hill, Elbow's Guy Garvey, Emilia Fox, Damian Lewis, David Tennant, Tim Peake, Nadiya Hussain, Warwick Davis, Maxine Peake, James McAvoy and David Hasselhoff to read in "story corner".

QOTSA, who recently released their Villains album and celebrated it with a surprise gig at Leeds Festival last month, are also set to embark on UK Tour dates.

Speaking about the new sound of the LP, Homme told Radio X's Gordon Smart: “It dawned on me that if you’re lucky enough to have a sound that’s your own, if you’re not careful, by the seventh record you could become parody, like a cartoon character on the wall, you know? 

"So I think this record’s about hanging on to what’s important about us, but re-appropriating how that sounds, you know what I mean?”
