How long does a rock/pop group take to write a debut album on average? I know this is vague, but go with me!

Sorry for any confusion

I'd say about 3 - 4 weeks for a half decent album.

Mercyful Fate wrote and recorded their first album in six days, and that's a ****ing amazing album.

Well why is your title 'record' then? Don't expect me to read posts

In all seriousness, that's the vaguest question ever. It depends on how fast you can write a song and be happy with it, how many songs you want, how many times you feel like changing that little bit, writing riffs, writing solos. Everything really. If I sat down and worked my arse off I'd say I could write an average album in 2 months.

One day is more than enough. It will be crappy though.
Two bands I'm obsessed about : Coheed and Cambria.

This. Some bands do it in a few months, while others take years.

You spend 6 years writing and perfecting material for your debut album.

You tour for a year and a half on that record.

You return from tour to find that the label has asked you to write and record a new album and rehearse for the tour, all in 6 weeks.


Case closed.

This depends greatly on their musicianship. If they happen to be really good musicians playing simple music, they could likely write it in 2-3 weeks, possibly less. If they're your average jerk-off pop-punk guys, probably double/triple that time.

I did both of mine in about a month each. I imagine it'll go faster if you have the creative minds of multiple people coming up with things instead of one guy overdubbing.
