After the release of Fresh Grounds EP in early 2011 and being nominated for The Pier’s 2011 Artist of The Year, Iration is back in the studio working on a new album and today on their facebook, announced that they’ve spent the last 2 weeks in pre-production and have 5 new songs ready. Here’s what Iration’s Bassist Adam Taylor told The Pier of their 2012 schedule in the studio:
“We’re really too excited to be back in the studio in the upcoming months. We’re tentatively planning a studio release this summer and hope to have a single out by early spring. No details yet as to an album title or theme, but we are excited to say that the writing process has gone really well – we can’t wait to lay down these tracks. We’ll be recording this album at Rami Jaffee’s (Wallflowers/Foo Fighters) Fonogenic Studios in the Los Angeles area. Fans can expect collaborations with Cage the Elephant guitarist Lincoln Parish, who will also be co-producing recordings. We couldn’t be more stoked! We’ll be sure to keep our fans, as well as The Pier up to date with developments as they progress. Aloha”
– Adam Taylor, Iration
