Sonic Youth ready new album

Thurston and co aim to release the new album this June

Sonic Youth are in the final stages of recording their new album.

The band say they hope to release the record, which currently has a working title of ‘The Eternal’, this June.

Thurston Moore told NME‘s sister publication Uncut that the band were focussing on making “a record replete with juicy supersonic songs!”

The record will be the band’s first featuring newly-written material since 2006’s ‘Rather Ripped’.

As NME.COM previously reported, the band’s Kim Gordon is in the process of launching her own clothing line, Mirror/Dash.

‘The Eternal’ will be Sonic Youth‘s first release on Matador Records.
