"That difficult second album"

Hey guys and girls... It's been a couple of months without a blog now so I figured I'd fill you all in on what we've been up to at Speed Kings HQ.

Following our last run of gigs after coming back from Russia we decided to take a few months off to work on songs for the new album and recharge our batteries a bit. We felt we needed to take a break from playing so constantly to really concentrate on making the new album as awesome as we can.

We're aiming to make the new album a real, stripped-down, kick-ass rock 'n' roll record. The new stuff is still sounding very much like our signature mix of rockabilly, country, punk and speedrock with some really catchy riffs and lots of venom in the lyrics. I've been locked away most nights and weekends for the last few weeks coming up with some tunes that are going to be great both live and on the disc. We've also just picked up a whole load of microphones and a digital multi-track recorder (God bless ready to start demoing tracks in the rehearsal room in preparation for recording in a few months time.
