Stereophonics plan to release a live album in 2006 featuring tracks recorded on their current tour.
The band have been on the road all year promoting their fifth studio album to ‘Language. Sex. Violence. Other?’.
Speaking on the bands official website frontman Kelly Jones revealed: “Last week we mixed a load of live tracks for a potential record next year. We wanna bring out a live album with the similar angle to LSVO, very much in ya face and to the point and not overstay its welcome. So its not gonna be the whole gig at all, probably between 10 or 12 songs, no longer than 60 minutes.”
He added: “It’s in no way a greatest hits, and the songs picked are picked from how good the energy is, no overdubs, keeping it a very raw live record, mainly to show how much the band were loving playing live this year.”
Jones also wrote in the diary that the band have started writing new material for their next record. He confirmed: “We have been demoing new material – I finished three completely – which I’m really into, and lots of other sketches too, so new material will come soon too.”
The band haven’t finished touring this year yet – they go on a December jaunt of the UK.
The full list of dates are:
Brighton Centre (December 12)
Bournemouth International Centre (13)
Exeter Westpoint Arena (14)
London Alexandra Palace (16/17)
Support will come from The Subways.
