Warpaint have confirmed that their new album is underway.

Speaking to NME at the Reading Festival, the all-female alt.rock band revealed that they have begun work on the follow-up to last year's The Fool'. You can watch the full interview with Warpaint by clicking at the top of the page.

Though the group have mentioned aiming for a stripped-back sound in the past, drummer Stella Mozgawa has denied aiming for an aesthetic. She said:
We don't have any concept of what it should sound like. Unless all of us decide that it should sound particularly minimal or electronic. Right now it's important for us to experiment and write with one another. We've never written from then ground up with this line-up.

Guitarist Jenny Lee Lindberg added that progress was likely to speed up once the band are off tour, saying: "oftentimes we'll just jam and free-flow onstage, so maybe a new song will happen that way. It's coming. This is our last British show, we’ve got Electric Picnic in Ireland, then a show in Seattle, then we're home."
