have confirmed that they have started work on their new album.
Speaking to Rolling Stone
), frontman Chino Moreno
said that the rest of the group have begun work on their eighth LP, though he was yet to hear what they had come up with. "The other guys started last week – I'm excited to hear what they've done so far,"
Speaking about the sound of the follow-up to 2012's "Koi No Yokan
," Moreno added: "We don't plan on what kind of record we're going to make. We react to each other – one guy starts playing something then the other guy reacts to it, and the other guys react to that. Next thing we know, we have a song. I think that's the best, organic way to write music. Its worked for us over the years."
