Celebrating their 20th anniversary
Stereophonics have shared an update with fans that appears to suggest that they’ve finished work on their new album.
Now, it looks like the follow-up could be set to drop in 2017, after the band posted a photo of frontman Kelly Jones in the studio, with a tick besides the words ‘album 10’. Tour dates and festival appearances are expected to follow.
NME have contacted Stereophonics for a response on what comes next from the band.
This year also marks 20 years since the band released their debut album ‘Word Gets Around’.

Speaking to Wales Online back in July, frontman Kelly Jones said: “We’ve pretty much finished the album already. We’ll start mixing it this September when the tour’s finished and I’d like to bring it out next summer, or spring time if possible.
“If it all works out well we’ll be releasing our tenth studio album in our twentieth year.”
Jones added: “I wouldn’t want to mark the 20th anniversary with a bunch of memorabilia and B-sides, I want to keep the band moving forward.
“It’s sounding good at the minute so I’m looking forward to getting it out there, coming back around and playing shows again.”
