drummer Taylor Hawkins
shared a fresh update regarding the band's upcoming studio album, confirming that the group is tighter than ever at the moment.
Chatting with Detroit's 101 WRIF-FM
, Taylor didn't want to reveal too much, saying, "We're not done yet. We're still kind of in the middle of a project, and I can't really discuss what it is. I don't know what you heard or whatever, and I just want to be safe. Whatever you've heard, OK. I'm trying to keep it kind of mellow."
But the drummer didn't end it there, adding (via Loudwire
), "The only thing I can tell, you, and this is the God's honest truth, is that we as a band more so than ever can walk into a studio and record a song anyway we want, as quick as we want, to the best of our ability, and that’s a development ... As a band we're playing better than we've ever played. I just know it. I can feel it. I can hear it, and that's the most important thing and it's awesome."
As previously reported, producer Butch Vig
expressed hope to have the record done production-wise by the end of June. In the new interview, Taylor noted that the album will hopefully be out by the end of the year, making the two time schedules seemingly fit in.
