The Cribs' Gary Jarman has confirmed that the band are working on two new albums – just months after claiming that they were on hiatus.

Jarman, who revealed all about the two albums he is working on with brothers Ryan and Ross, said that recording was expected to commence in early 2014. Speaking to NME in a new interview in this week's issue, available digitally and on newsstands now, he also said one of the albums will be a pop record while the other will be more aggressive.

"We're gonna try and do two new records, that's the plan. Not a double album – two separate records, two separate sides to the band," he said. "There's one that's going to be really noisy and visceral and immediate, and one that's gonna be more pop. We've been writing for the past month or so and there's definitely an idealistic concept of these two records, which has come from that.

Jarman added that he and his brothers are "not in a rush", but added: "In my mind we'll probably be recording by the beginning of next year. Judging by how we normally work, that's how I see it."

Meanwhile, Exclamation Pony, the band formed by Ryan Jarman and Here We Go Magic's Jen Turner, will release their debut recording in September. The pair will put out the double A-side single 'Pseudo Individual/Mazes' on September 23 via Cult Records. According to Jarman, both songs were recorded "at a frenzied pace in and around New York City, at various studios, basements, bedrooms and anywhere else we happened to find ourselves".

The Cribs picked up the Teenage Cancer Trust Outstanding Contribution To Music award at The NME Awards 2013. The band have released five albums since forming in 2003 with the most recent, 'In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull', released in May 2012. In March of this year, the band also put out their demo collection 'Payola' collection free with NME.
