FACT! We’re nearing the end of our third album.

I cringe when I go back and read January blog posts from the last two years, because that’s what I’ve said each time. I really don’t know why it’s taken us so long to get here. Lots of changes, new jobs, crap ideas… well yes, but they’re just excuses. In all honesty it’s just not felt right. We’ve actually got around 30 ideas sitting on a hard drive in various states of completion.

I think largely the concept for an “album” is a thing of the past.  Most people don’t actually sit through a whole album anymore, I rarely do. The fact we’ve waited to put these new songs out seems stupid to me. We could have released something every few months and stayed in people’s minds more, that could have led to more opportunities to play live, work with other artists on remixes and generally kept the buzz going.  After this album,that’s what we intend to do.

Apart from our album I’m looking forward to hearing new material from Depeche Mode, The Knife, Karl Bartos, Marsheaux and Goldfrapp.

Happy New Year, here’s to 2013!
