The Beach Boys have said that they hope to record another new album to follow 'That's Why God Made the Radio', which was released earlier this year.

The current line-up of Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston and David Marks were speaking towards the end of their 50th anniversary tour last night (September 18) at a special evening launching a Beach Boys exhibition at The Grammy Museum in Los Angeles.

At the event, after an acoustic performance of 'Surfer Girl', 'California Girls', 'Help Me, Rhonda' and 'I Get Around', Brian Wilson said – via Rolling Stone:

"I wouldn't mind getting together with Mike and the guys and making an exciting rock and roll album... I'm sure by early next year we'll be ready to rock."

When asked if any solo projects might get in the way of the band making more new music together, Al Jardine added: "The Beach Boys is the real deal. I'm not interested in that other stuff."

The band will play London's Royal Albert Hall on September 27.

The show is the first London date of the band's full European tour, which will also see them play London's Wembley Arena on September 28.

The Beach Boys formed in 1961 and enjoyed huge success throughout the following decades. Brian Wilson last performed with The Beach Boys during the making of their 1996 album 'Stars And Stripes Vol 1', and has toured as a solo artist since. Two former founding members, Dennis and Carl Wilson, died in 1983 and 1998 respectively.
