The Thrills have almost finished their second album – and it’s got some very special guests on it.
The West Coast-via-Dublin indie stars have been busy recording in New York with Hundred Reasons and Dandy Warhols producer Dave Sardy. The album has a scheduled release date of September 13.
The first single from the new album will be ‘Whatever Happened To Corey Haim?’ on August 30, which has been a staple of the band’s live set for over a year.
Other tracks expected to make the final cut include ‘The Irish Gate Keeps Crashing’, ‘Smoke and Mirrors’, ‘Introducing The Fall Guy’, ‘Tell Me Something I Don’t Know’ and ‘Follow My Rosebud’.
The follow-up to ‘So Much For The City’ features an appearance from REM guitarist Peter Buck, as well as string arrangements from Brian Wilson’s co-writer Van Dyke Parks.
Earlier this year, singer Conor Deasy told NME.COM “It’s a bit more rock’n’roll, it’s got a bit more of an edge. It’s not a contrived U-turn, it’s a natural step on. For the first one, it was more of a feelgood record, we hadn’t really toured much.”
