Kim Deal reveals that Breeders are working on new material
Kim Deal has revealed that her band The Breeders are working on new material.

The group released their last full length album, 'Mountain Battles' in 2008, followerd by an EP in 2009 titled 'Fate To Fatal'. After that release, Deal put the band on hold while she went on a two-year tour with her former band Pixies.

The Breeders got together for a string of live dates last year, however, to mark the 20th anniversary of their 1993 album 'Last Splash'.

Speaking to Stereogum, Deal revealed that the band are now back in the studio recording new material.

"We’re down in the basement recording and the songs are sounding good," she said. “Today we're working on Josephine [Wiggs, bassist]'s song and it’s sounding really good. I’ve got a good melody line for it and got some lyrics. So that's what we’re going to be recording today, one of her songs. Then I've got two that have lyrics and a melody line but I don’t like the drum part on one of them. The other one sounds pretty cool. We'll probably get those three going. And I have other songs. There's one song that I really like but I don’t think Josephine likes so much, but I really like it."

Last month, Deal revealed the latest in her series of her solo seven-inch singles, a collaboration with Morgan Nagler of the group Whispertown titled 'The Root' – watch the video for it below.

Deal quit Pixies in June 2013.
