Exclusive Triple M news, expect a new Pennywise album in a couple of months!
Triple M's Higgo spoke to Fletcher Dragge of Pennywise at Soundwave in Brisbane about their next album.
"We've got one in the can right now," Fletcher Dragge told Higgo.
"We finished it three days before we left.
"Nobody knows it. You're the first people to know it right here.
"We were going to do a 25th anniversary box set type thing and it kept on changing shape and format and we wound up just going back in the studio and pulling a bunch of songs that were never recorded from backyard party days and a bunch of songs from outtakes from albums over the years.
"We would write like 40-50 songs for an album so there's always a bunch of leftover great songs that just don't make the cut.
"Not because they weren't good, just because we had too many.
"So we went back in there and banged out 12 songs and did it old school style."
So when can we expect to see the new album?
"It's done, it's in the can, we're working on artwork and we're hoping in a couple of months you'll be listening to some new stuff."
