The Living End are heading into the studio with producer John Agnello at Water Music Studios in Hoboken, New Jersey. Agnello forged a name for himself in the heady days of the '90s, working with Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jnr and The Hold Steady. Water Music Studios has also played host to a wealth of music industry heavyweights including U2, Evan Dando and Ryan Adams. "After quite a long period of writing/demoing we are keen as hell to get in the studio and make the best record of our career. We are more excited about the new material than any time before in The Living End's history - seriously!" said Chris Cheney. "There is a heaviness and depth to the new stuff that we simply haven't had before. We haven't worked alongside producer John Agnello before but judging from the rock records he's done, we feel he can capture the energy and attack that we are after." Agnello heard the new demos from The Living End and was blown away. He is really excited to be working with the band. "From the moment I heard the demos of the new songs, I knew this would be a special record. Chris's vocals really blew me away and the lyrics are great. There are some real standout songs, among them, "Kid" and "Waiting For The Silence." It also doesn't hurt that they are my nephew's favorite band of all time and he's been up my ass about meeting them since I told him," says Agnello. The Living End will then be stepping in to mix the record with legendary producer Brendan O'Brien, who will be mixing the album in between his commitments recording the new AC/DC album and the new Pearl Jam record. 'We are very excited that Brendan O'Brien will be at the mixing desk and although we've never worked with him either, we feel his track record speaks for itself." The Living End's first album on Dew Process/UMA is due out in mid-July.

    I never heard of them before then I went to a +44 show and I saw him use a foaming beer as a slide on a gretsch white falcon! Wow what an amazing band! I'm happy they're producing new music.

    love living in Australia. got to see them play songs from the album at a small pub gig in Feb. there was about 100 or so people there and the new stuff sounds good, better than the last album! you can find clips of the new songs on youtube, search for 'the longnecks' the secret name they played under.

    Nah I think S/T was their best album, but State Of Emergency was good. I saw em play a "secret" show with nothing but new stuff, they've gone heavier than before. Hell, I could even some early-era Maiden. P.S. They're my favourite band. They're so underrated around the world imo.

    saw these dudes supporting the dropkick murphies a year ago and they put on an amazing show!! the guitarist was standing on top of the bassist bass while played it! been meaning to buy an album of theirs but forgot all about them, probably will now though...

    These guys are easily one of the most underrated rock bands out there and its awesome to see they're still working hard and earning a rep for doing so. Every other band that got big for playing ubeat catchy punk rock like they do have disapeared while the Living End have developed and evolved. I wonder if their bass player still uses a stand-up bass. Anyway, it will be interesting to see what they turn out. Right now I'm waiting on this record and the new Black Keys album being recorded with DJ Dangermouse of Gorillaz and Gnarls Barkely fame to produce.

    I ****ing love the Living End. That is all. Wait, no, that's not all. They better play a few shows around NJ so I can get my fix; it's been over a year. Favorite band EVER. I can't wait.
