Klaxons begin work on second album

Forget new rave, the trio are set to go 'prog'

Klaxons have begun work on their second album.

The band, who are currently on tour in the US, have said they have started writing new material for the follow-up to debut LP ‘Myths Of The Near Future’, which came out in January.

Bandmember Simon Taylor said: “We’ve written the opener of the next album. We’re thinking of making a prog album – like a huge tribal prog album.

“We’ve all been listening to bands in England like Caravan, so we’re defintely going to make a big, prog album.”

Klaxons are currently on tour in the US but come back to the UK in May.
