Gaz Coombes denies he's been suffering from writer's block in the two years that have elapsed since the band's last album...

SUPERGRASS are determined to debut new material at THE CARLING WEEKEND, even though the band only managed to play three-quarters of one new song at RADIOHEAD‘s recent OXFORD gig.

The band have also denied suffering from writer’s block since the release of their last album ‘Supergrass’, two years ago.

Speaking exclusively to NME.COM, frontman Gaz Coombes said: “We certainly haven’t been having any writer’s block. All of us have been writing, same as usual. Only better. Its gonna be a great one. It (the album) should be out early next year, I reckon. You haven’t got long to wait.”

Asked about the Carling Weekend, where Supergrass play the main stage, Gaz said: “We just want to play some new songs, get a couple of them in there. We managed three-quarters of a new song at the Oxford show -a song without an end (‘They Found Her Body”).”
