Speaking to NME earlier this year about their plans for their next album, frontman Ricky Wilson said: “The cards are looking up. We’re writing, we’re always writing. We’re touring, we’re always touring.

“We’re signing a new deal. We’re making another record. When it comes out, we’ll do the rounds saying that it’s the best one ever – like we always do.”

Wilson added that the band have no fixed plans of what sound to explore, following on from the more ‘pop friendly’ approach of last album ‘Stay Together‘.

“We’ll see where the writing goes,” said Wilson. “We don’t go in with an agenda, we don’t come out with one. They just keep letting us do it, so we do it.”
