Kyuss drummer and founder Brant Bjork is working on a solo album. The new, undoubtedly stoned and groovy album is called Tao of the Devil, and it hits on September 30 via Napalm Records. The album cover tips its hat to the Aerosmith logo but with a pot leaf in the middle, so we all should know what we're in for here. Check out album art and tracklist below.

Meanwhile, Brant's Kyuss (and now Vista Chino) bandmate John Garcia just wrapped up a solo tour of his own over in Europe. No word yet on whether Vista Chino will tour anytime soon, but lets hope so (they're still well worth catching, even without Josh Homme in tow).

Speaking of grooved-out desert rock, Brant's old band-mates in Fu Manchu are also up to some stuff. They've got a new 7" on the way and a release show in LA to go along with it, as they'll be hitting The Viper Room on August 13. Tickets for that are still on sale. They'll also be at Riot Fest Chicago in September, and then they'll head out on a European tour.

And of course the aforementioned Josh Homme has been busy with Iggy Pop and company. All dates for Fu Manchu listed, along with a video of John Garcia's recent live performance and some Vista Chino music, below.
