Jet say new album is five times better than their debut

The Cester brothers say they've surpassed themselves

Jet have declared that their forthcoming new album will blow their debut out of the water.

The band’s frontman Nic Cester said that having taken 2005 off to concentrate on recording, the untitled album will easily supersede 2003’s ‘Get Born’.

“We’re just taking our time and making sure it’s five times better than the first one,” he told US radio station KRCW.

His brother, drummer Chris Cester, added : “It’s more mature. I think first and foremost would be lyrically, we’ve taken giant leaps. We’ve lived two years, buzzing around the world, that’s life experience right there.”

The new record is pencilled in for release in spring 2006.
