INXS To Hit The Studio In Autumn
Veteran Aussie rockers INXS are hoping to hit the studio later in the year, with J.D. Fortune slotting back into frontman duties, has learned. "As soon as our current tour is over, then we'll basically be writing, to go into the studio at the end of the year, or the beginning of next year," guitarist Tim Farriss said. New frontman Fortune has proven to be a perfect fit for INXS, Farriss said. The singer has been with the band since he won his role through the 2005 CBS reality television series "Rock Star: INXS." The band had been unable to find a permanent replacement for singer Michael Hutchence, who died in a Sydney hotel room in 1997. "Michael was like a brother. We grew up together," Farriss said. "And we always said when we tried to find a new singer, that we didn't want anyone who sounded or looked or acted or was anything like him at all. And then it turns out the fellow we ended up picking is just about as similar as you can possibly imagine." The new album will follow the group's 2005 set, "Switch," which has sold 388,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Read more at Reuters.
