Gnarwolves planning 2015 release
Download 2015 exclusive: Brighton trio working ahead of schedule on new material
Gnarwolves are planning a release before the end of the year, the band have confirmed.
The Brighton punk rockers released their self-titled debut album in 2014 and have also put out three EPs since forming in 2011. While they haven't confirmed whether the next release will be an EP or a full album, they've promised new tunes are on the way.
And while they look forward to unleashing the material, they say they could do without the time constraints put on them by the record business, saying they prefer to work at their own pace.
The band tell TeamRock Radio: "We're gonna put something out before the end of the year. But the thing that's changed is that, because of major labels starting to press records so much, you have to start pressing a record six months before it comes out now, which is mental.
"So we have to be ready to put a record out six months prior to it being released. What the hell? We literally only released one the other day. But it's cool because we've got some tunes and they sound sick, and it's always nice to play new material when you're on tour so much."
