Published Dec 23, 2014While there was a five-year gap between Neurosis' Given to the Rising and 2012's Honor Found in Decay, an interview with frontman Scott Kelly suggests the band may not take as long to issue their next LP.
"We're hoping to turn one around in a reasonable time," the vocalist/guitarist recently told Hatebreed's Jamey Jasta on his The Jasta Show of the band's TBD 11th full-length LP, explaining that Neurosis will start songwriting sessions early next year.
"February we're going to spend writing, which is something we haven't done in a long time. Just carve out a month and really, really focus on recording," Kelly said, noting he'll be heading out to bandmate Steve Von Till's home in Idaho to work on material, and back at home in the Bay with the rest of the band. "We're really going to hammer out some skeletons of songs that we can then work on through the year."
With the initial sessions yet to get underway, it's unclear what the timeline will be for the release. But chances are good it will arrive through Neurosis' own Neurot Recordings at a later date.
Elsewhere in the interview, Kelly confirmed that while the band will undertake their first bus tour in years this summer, there are also plans to hold a 30th anniversary concert in late 2015.
