According to Thin Lizzy guitarist Damon Johnson, the band will enter the recording studio today "with electric guitars and amps a'blazin'; and Brian Downey's full drum kit!" No futher details are currently available, Blabbermouth.net reports. In a recent interview with Rock Fusion, Thin Lizzy frontman Ricky Warwick stated about Thin Lizzy's plans to record a new studio album, "We've just been working on some ideas that we all have. We all write in the band, so we've just been sitting down and playing each other our stuff, and it's been really great. I mean, it's really early days, but everyone's very excited and got loads of ideas, and we're all working really great together as a band, and that's what it's all about - let's get in there and see what ideas we have and take it from there. It was all very productive and we all had a great time. We're back in next week so we will just take it from there and see what happens. Ideally we'd love to record as much as we can, but obviously it's got to be to a great f--king standard. We're all as nervous about it as the fans, but in a good way. The bar has been set very high and we will only release what we 100 percent believe in, whether that's two tracks or 12 tracks. I mean, I'd love it to be a full album, but we'll just need to take it as it goes." When asked if there any plans for a live DVD in the future, Warwick said, "Yeah, there's talk about that further down the line. I mean, VH1 are revisiting us, they're updating 'Behind The Music' to include the new members in the band. Last year was all about re-establishing the band, the brand and the name and showing that what we have is something very real, and I think we've got over that hump now and this year we can move on. It's a case of taking it one step at a time. Thin Lizzy fans are very passionate and so loyal, you can't just go, 'Look, the band's back together, here's an album, here's a tour, and you'rd going f--king like it.' You've got to do it one bit at a time and win people over, and that's what we're doing. Like I said, at the end of the day, we are all fans, too."

    the thing you lot dont understand is so many bands have gone on to make millions with a new singer like acdc bon scott died brian johnson died made a hell of an album. iron maiden have had like 4 singers in there career and still made millions. black sabbath with dio it all keeps the band going and who knows it could be a good record just because phil isnt in it doesnt mean the band should stop.

    Lame. Thin Lizzy - Phil = Not Thin Lizzy. And that guy imitating his voice sounds like horse shit

    What happened to "We're only going to play old material, we'll never make an album"?

    Phil Lynott and Gary Moore were both a huge part of the band. I don't think I like them making an album without either member, but if it's good, then props to them.

    What happened to the 700 thin lizzy songs they supposedly found not too long ago? Would much rather hear those than anything this tribute band has to offer

    A new Thin Lizzy album?! Hell yeah! Maybe it's just me, but if I'm pretty sure that Phil would want Thin Lizzy to continue without him. All of the members of the band are incredibly talented, and I think Phil would hate to see them waste their songwriting and music talents just because Phil moved over to the next plane. I'm all for this.

    They did one album with Gary Moore, and it definitely wasn't their best.
