The Thrills are close to completing the follow-up to 2004’s ‘Let’s Bottle Bohemia’.
In a message posted on the band’s Myspace page, frontman Conor Deasy explained that although the band decamped to Vancouver over the summer to record the album, they still felt it was incomplete upon returning to Ireland.
He said: “Despite spending a summer in Vancouver recording and finishing our new album, I kept working on new songs when I got home to Dublin. I guess I knew in the back of my mind we were still a song short. So we returned to Wexford in the ‘Sunny South East Of Ireland’ for one last time to work out arrangements and demo two final songs.
“We are currently recording these songs as I blog with Tony Hoffer, our producer. When they are finished we are going to New York to mix them. And then it’s finally, finally finished! Can’t wait to put it out and see what you think of it.”
The band recently contributed an acoustic version of a new song entitled ‘Good Intentions Rust’ to Oxfam charity album ‘The Cake Sale’.
According to Deasy, The Thrills’ third album is due out “early-ish next year”.
