According to a recent interview, Billy Talent will be releasing a fourth record in the near future. Drummer Aaron Solowoniuk commented on what's next for the band saying they do have plans to release Billy Talent IV. "I'm really excited about IV as its going to be really new for us," he said. "We are making a big move to a new place to create it and it's going to be absolutely wonderful." The drummer also discussed the band's recent tour with Alexisonfire and Against Me! calling it the best tour he's ever done, despite the lineup not including the British hardcore group Gallows, who were scheduled to play with Billy Talent the last few months. When asked about Billy Talent's history, Solowoniuk said they understand what it took to make them successful. "We've just paid our dues for so long that we will never take anything, like our popularity, for granted because it took us so long to get there," he said. Although a release date is unknown, Billy Talent's next record will be their fourth in the group's 17-year existence. They've released three albums to date over the past seven years with all of them going Platinum in Canada and Gold in Germany.

    Seeing them in three days! Hopefully the new album is better than III, I thought they could have done better.

    Billy Talent is amazing, I saw them when they played Rock on the Range, though sadly missed their tour with alexisonfire (which would've been so boss) They put on a great live show... and though III wasn't as good, I'm still expecting greatness from these guys

    I agree with all four of you. In my opinion, his voice is one of the most annoying i've heard besides kings of leon.

    I disagree with all of you. In my opinion, you're the dumbest commenters I've ever seen.

    Billy Talent is sooooo ****in' good. I can't wait for a new album. Although it seems as though it's a bit quick to release a new album, they've always waited a while.

    Saw them about a month ago with Alexisonfire, Cancer Bats and Against Me, EPiC

    apparently they have stated in interviews that III was the end of a "trilogy" and that the fourth album will actually have a title. It's going to be awesome any way, Love BT

    I absolutely LOVE Billy Talent. Saw them at Soundwave 09 in Sydney and they were one of the best bands there. I agree, i think III could have been a little bit better, it didn't have the catchiness that billy talent II had, but it's still a good album. I've excited to hear how they change. I hope i'm not disappointed, but i love hearing a band evolve. I've still got the other three albums there to listen to so i don't want any more of that.

    I disagree with the general III dislike. I honestly think that III may be their best album yet. I was raw, II was mellow, but I think III found that sweet spot right between the two of them. I'm psyched that they're planning on a fourth album, though. I love every single song these guys have put out. I can't get enough.

    They need to change the sound a little all III of their albums so far sound the same not disrespecting them just bands always need to mix it up a bit and find other tones instead of the same thing over and over..

    fenwaypunk04 : i love how my "billy talentless" comment got deleted earlier... HAH!
    i love how you went on to a Billy Talent article, read it, went to the comments, wrote a hate comment thinking your so hilarious using the same stupid ass joke thats been used more than your mothers ****, then leave, come BACK, filter through ALL the comments, look for your first stupid comment, not find it, then comment on how you fail at life and insults.. i bet your mom loves how much a failure at life her kid turned out to be..

    Well, I'm gonna have to change my mind about III and how it could have been better. Now that I've seen them live, I have to give it a little more respect. D=

    Billy Talent, in my opion, is the best band in the world. everyone has likes and dislikes. and i read that there was an interview about the band(not guy, it's a band) saying that the fifth album(yes five, Watoosh, I, II, and III) will not be called Billy Talent IV. I think BT II was the best, but all were great. I also like listening to their, "vintage" songs when Ben(singer) pretty much raps in some like Dudebox...Rock on BT lovers and haters

    I and II were such amazing albums, I really thought III was lame though, very recycled ideas. It was just plain boring. Hopefully they will make something fresh.

    Okay the ones who are ripping on Billy Talent, please go get a life and keep your hate comments to yourself. As for Billy Talent, I saw them a couple of weeks ago and they were amazing! I wish they played more stuff from I and II though. I hope IV is better than III - not that it was bad - but it wasn't that great either. Anyways, looking forward to another album!

    seen em about a month ago in sudbury, and they were KILLER. III was good but i think they could step it up for IV.

    Seeing them in three days! Hopefully the new album is better than III, I thought they could have done better.
    Completely agree, though III was much better the second or third time I listened to it all the way through which seems pretty typical of a lot of albums these days. Hopefully Ian D'sa can go back to his work on I and II though, I think I loved nearly every guitar part on both of those albums
    AngryGoldfish
    Yeah, III wasn't anything special. The first two were classics. Hopefully they'll try and do something different.

    I love all three albums. one of my favorite bands. can't wait!
    randymeeks81
    i just recently rediscovered III and i really enjoy it. sure it's not a huge step forward, but at least it's consistent. every time i see them live it's a great experience.

    lol Billy Talent IV i wonder if theyre ever going to change title name ideas?

    I saw them headline in saint john nb canada on the BTII tour, it was sick. My personal ranking of the albums goes 2, then 1, then 3. lets see number four get to the top.

    Not that impressed with Billy Talent. I like a few of their songs, but they weren't that great at Download last year.
    _KurtCobain_77
    Looking forward to the album. Ian's playing style has always impressed me and I really want to see what he brings to the table this time around. If they can go back and capture some aggression and anger from the first album, I would be extremely happy.

    III was a disappointing album, hopefully IV will take it up a notch

    One time you see Billy Talent live you will love them! My little brother is a hip hop fan and doesn't listen to rock at all, But in 2007 I got him to a Billy Talent show in Brussels and he came with me this year again! They are really underrated, it's sad but hey, they ticket prices aren't so high, so good for me

    One of the few bands that are "new" that I support. Bought all 3 of their albums. Even though I don't really listen to their stuff anymore.

    How is this news? Isn't it assumed that most famous bands are going to release another album? Wouldn't it make more sense to inform the people if the weren't making another album?

    Well, yeah, but if you don't tell people about the album, who's gonna know about it? You can't just put it out without saying anything about it. Checked.

    Lol, when I first read the headline, I was like "I BET IT'S CALLED BILLY TALENT IV!"
    I got the boot
    Actually the next album will be their fith. Their first on was called "Watoosh!" but they were called Pezz at the time ,they had to change their name due to a copyright claim from another group of the same name.
