Tribes’ Johnny Lloyd: ‘We’ve already started writing our second album’

Singer says they want to put out their next LP in 2013

TribesJohnny Lloyd has revealed that the band have already started working on their second album.

Talking to NME, the frontman said that he and his bandmates had already begun writing tracks for the new LP, even though their debut album, ‘Baby’, was only released in January this year.

“We started writing it about two months ago,” said the singer. “We’ve done a load of demos for it. I reckon we’d like to try and get it out in early 2013.”


Speaking about the nature of the new material, he went on to add:

It’s probably a little more rootsy than the last one, it’s taken in more influences – not necessarily what we grew up on, but what we experienced in the past year. There’s a bit more rock’n’roll in it, I think.
