One of the most popular acts from across the pond, CHVRCHES have announced that they will most likely release their sophomore album in two years. The Glasgow based, electro-pop trio has gained an enormous amount of popularity in such a short time with the release of their debut album, The Bones Of What You Believe. Receiving adoration and praise from around the world, CHVRCHES are in no hurry to build on their incredible momentum.
The band is currently touring in the U.S. and will perform at several UK dates before taking a break. They have reportedly said that they will not begin recording the new album until completing their touring obligations. Keyboardist Iain Cook in an interview with Classic Pop, went into further detail about the bands plans for the future. “You often see bands with a successful debut who get cocky, so they hash out something sub-standard and nobody gives a shit again. So we’re not over-confident, but pressure can work against you too. We’re not going to put out anything we aren’t happy with. That could take four months, it could take two years.”
Perfectionists at heart it looks like fans will have a lengthy waiting period for new music by the band. This is not necessarily a bad thing as it will become a mad scramble for their new album when it finally becomes available. It may not be ideal for a music lover but it is a very sound and viable marketing ploy by the band. Stay tuned for further details on a new album or tour by CHVRCHES.
