Welsh band join rock'n'roll 'drought' debate
The band even claim a lack of good guitar music in the UK has inspired their forthcoming new album ‘Weapons’ .
Lead singer Ian Watkins told BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe:
That’s why we started, it was like, ‘Why is no-one making decent music? We’ll have to do it ourselves’.
He added: “It’s been nice to have a break but I think what’s out at the moment is very saturated now, it’s reaching the point where you’re like ‘enough’.
“It’s kind of the same thing [now], I’m fuelled by healthy competition. That’s why we’re coming back. The world needs us.”
The follow up to 2010’s ‘The Betrayed’ will be released through Epic on April 2. The band will also be announcing tour news soon.
