And there will be an EP as well...

Californian indie rockers Grandaddy have revealed they have finished a new EP for release – and are progressing well with work on their new album.

The band are hard at work in their native Modesto trying to complete the follow-up to 2003’s acclaimed ’Sumday’.

But it seems likely there will be a separate EP to be released around the same time.


In a posting on the band’s official website drummer Aaron Burtch said: “We’re finished with an EP to be released at a later date. It’s got six songs including an old, old one called ’Florida’ which some of the local fans will recognise from when we used to play it in town years ago.”

Some of the songs that have been completed for the album are ’Campershell Dreams’, ’Disconnecty’, ’Where I’m Anymore’ and ’Jeez Louise’.

Burtch said of the album: “It’s pretty much in its’ later stages and a big portion of it is completely tracked. There are a couple of songs that have yet to be recorded, but the songs that are done are sounding really fine.”
