Having found their frontman, Glasvegas’ guitarist Rab Allen recently outlined what’s ahead for the Scotish outfit, specifically the recording plans for its highly-anticipated second album. Speaking to Spinner U.K., Allen confirmed that the followup to the band’s 2008’s self-titled debut will be here soon rather than later: “We do one last show in Poland and then we go straight to Los Angeles and we’re gonna record the next album there. That’ll be released early next year.”
The move leaves no down-time for the band, after its U.S. tour followed on from a hectic home debut. “That was our choice. James [Allen] has been writing a lot… It’s great and we just wanted to try to get the next thing out as [soon] as possible.”
The calendar is already regimented, but the band is looking to fit in some sightseeing time whenever possible. “Me and James will come out and finish off the demos and then the rest of the band will come out in November … I think we’ll probably spend Christmastime there as well. My mom and James’ mom are going to come over. We invited them over. We’ll send them to Vegas for a few days. They’ve never been to America.”
The band have chosen to keep Rich Costey and maintain continuity across the records. He will co-produce with lead-singer James Allan, and they may be taking up one Mr. Rubin on an earlier offer. “I think Rick Rubin said we could do the drums in his house,” Rab says.
Just make sure you keep Houdini off the record, okay?
