Supergrass head into the studio

New record will be finished in a month

Supergrass have revealed that they are to make an imminent return to the studio to record new material.

Predicting that the process will be finished in little over a month, the band said they’re aiming for an “energetic” sound for their new record, which will be their first since 2005’s ‘Road To Rouen’.

Speaking to Steve Lamacq on BBC 6Music, lead singer Gaz Coombes explained: “Over the last few months we’ve been writing and stuff. We’ve been over each others places, y’know, we’ve got little studios at home, so we kinda get ideas and do little demos and just get the vibes up and just look to recording and bits of pre-production, which is where we’re at now.”

The band are now gearing up to take the new tracks into the studio.

Coombes added: “We’re off to Berlin in a couple of weeks to do the recording and its going to be a quick session, two or three week session, and just knock it out as fast as we can.

“That’s where the enthusiasm is; in what you’ve got coming, in what the future holds. That’s what it’s like for this next record; there’s just some really kind of vibrant, sort of exciting bits of music happening. Just can’t wait to get it down.”

Supergrass are due to play an anti-slavery gig on Sunday night (March 18) at London‘s Kentish Town Forum with Razorlight.
