The Vines to release new album ‘Future Primitive’ in June

Craig Nicholls says the album harks back to the 1960s

The Vines are set to release their new album ‘Future Primitive’ on June 6.

Frontman Craig Nicholls has said that the album, which was recorded with Wolf & Cub producer Chris Colonna in early 2010, was influenced by music from the 1960s.

He told Australian radio station Triple J: “There are a few three and a half minute songs but more of them are around two minutes. I just like the early singles in the ’60s, how they seemed to be very short.”

He added: “It’s kind of changed nowadays but we’re trying to bring that back, I guess.”

‘Future Primitive’ will be the band’s fifth album, and will be the follow-up to 2008’s ‘Melodia’.
