Palma Violets have revealed that they ditched two weeks worth of second album sessions.

Bassist Chili Jesson told NME that the band got rid of a fortnight's worth of songs because they were too good. "We made too big a leap," said Jesson. "I felt like we lost the element of youth." The band were writing the follow-up to '180' in a barn on a Welsh mountain-side, but have kept half an album's worth of songs from the writing sessions, including 'Goat Gang Go' and 'The Scandal', which they debuted live at the end of 2013.

Speaking in this week's NME, which is on newsstands or available digitally now, Jesson explains that the second album sessions will continue at the band's Studio 180 this year, with Bob Rock (Metallica) on production duties. "It's going to be like the change from 'The Clash' to 'Give 'Em Enough Rope' - bigger, but with all those youthful elements still there," says Jesson. Palma Violets feature in a rundown of 100 albums to look forward to in 2014, containing exclusive studio reports and photos.

Meanwhile, Palma Violets will play alongside Cat Power and The Cribs on the second ever Weezer Cruise, which will take place from February 13-17 and sail from Jacksonville in Florida to the Bahamas. Weezer themselves will headline the event, and there will also be performances from Ash, Diiv, Bleached, Holy Fuck, The Orwells and Toro Y Moi.
