CHEERS JOHNNY!

The band reveal their future plans to NME.COM after playing the Scottish bash...

While RAZORLIGHT are still in full party mode celebrating the success of their Top Three debut album, frontman JOHNNY BORRELL has revealed that the band are already hard at work its follow-up.

Shortly after they came off the NME stage at T In The Park today (July 11), a rather fragile Johnny said the band had been celebrating the Top 3 position of ‘Up All Night’ on Friday, so were somewhat fragile for their Oxegen appearance in Ireland yesterday. “I’ve never done a gig with a hangover like that before, I was a little bit the worse for wear. But the gig was great,” he said, reclining on a sofa backstage at the NME signing tent shortly before going to meet the band’s fans.

He said their set at T was “wicked”, and said: “The crowd were great, really good. We’ve played King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow five times, so this is like our second home.”

It is the first time the band have played T and Johnny said the audience weren’t as boozy as he’d been told! “I’d been warned that it’s quite a boozy fest, but I didn’t notice that so much. I’m desperate to just walk around and see some of the festival. I tried to do it at the end of the gig, just walk out the front, but they wouldn’t let me!”

He revealed that the band will be taking some time off before going to Japan and America, and continuing to work on the follow-up to ‘Up All Night’. “I’ve got hundreds of songs, loads of really good songs, I’m just trying to get nine or ten really great songs. The whole point is, every track on the next album’s got to be miles better than ‘Golden Touch’ otherwise we’ll have hit the ceiling.”
