The Thrills make ‘best work to date’

As they complete third album

The Thrills have completed their third album which they have proclaimed is their ‘best work to date’.

The as yet untitled album will be the follow up to 2004’s ’Let’s Bottle Bohemia’ and was recorded in Vancouver. It has been produced by Tony Hoffer.

Posting on their myspace site on the final day of recording (August 5), singer Conor Deasy wrote: “It’s the last night in the studio. We’ve been working from noon ’till 1 in the morning for a month and half with one day off a week.

“I believe this record will be our best work to date. The songs have really risen to the occasion. There’s only been one casualty. Maybe she’ll turn up on another record. We recorded our first instrumental. Could be a good opener. We’re going to go home for a week or so. Get some sleep and perspective, then regroup and mix it.”

A release date for the album has not been announced.
