The Spinto Band have revealed plans to a record a follow-up to their 2008 album ‘Moonwink’.
The group, who recently released a four-track EP entitled ‘Slim And Slender’, are expected to head into the studio soon.
“We spent the summer converting an abandoned chicken coop into a studio recording space,” singer and guitarist Nick Krill told NME.COM. “Our first undertaking in the coop/studio is a new Spinto Band full-length. Right now we don’t have funding, but we are expecting at least three of us to receive MacArthur Genius Grants in the coming year and, if that doesn’t work, possibly a Guggenheim Fellowship.”
The band also revealed how they have tried to enlist the help of Razorlight‘s Johnny Borrell.
“We sent an email to resident UK genius – the Razorlight guy Johnny Borrell – asking for tips, but he hasn’t written back.” Krill joked. “We haven’t been to the UK in a year, is that guy still considered a genius?”
