Desert People (happy Passover!)

It took about 40 years for the ancient Israelis to reach the holy land and earn their limping recognition, yet Josh Homme had managed to do the same thing, without limping and with 10 volumes of his Desert Sessions project. In his case,10 volumes equals about 6 years, which makes him a fast runner indeed. After his demise with the legendary desert rock kings Kyuss in 1997, and prior to rocking his current band, Queens of the Stone Age, Homme decided to get up-close and personal with some come-and-go friends in order to create the sessions. Partly rock, partly psychedelic, and mostly highly entertaining and groovy, the Desert Sessions are a good slice of fun-in-the-sun music. Some of the tracks even found their way to official QOTSA releases later on, and feature Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, QOTSA), P.J Harvey, Brant Bjork (ex. Kyuss) and Twiggy Ramirez (Marlyn Manson) to name a few. Spreaded over a handful of CDs, the sessions actually prove what desert and friends are really for : rocking out. Get ready for the all new and limited editions of the Sessions vol. 1 through 6, coming out this April !

Any idea when the first six volumes will actually release? We are really close to may and I have not been able to even find a release date for them. I think they will still be pretty limited pressings so I want to jump on them day one and be sure I get them all. Thanks for any info you can give.
