Surprise! Iron Butterfly has just confirmed that they will be working on a new album to coincide with their reunion. The new album will be their first since the release of Sun And Steel in 1975. The news was revealed in an interview with guitarist Mike Pinera and blogger of Ultimate Classic Rock, Jeff Cramer.
Pinera revealed that the band had started working on a new album and had even started planning a tour. “I’ll let you in on a little scoop, we just reformed Iron Butterfly with some original members…Ron Bushy, the original drummer and founder of the band, and myself, and Doug Ingle Jr.” The band was formed in 1966 and is most widely known for its hit track “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida”.
While deaths and health issues have unfortunately plagued the band, it seems as if they are back for good. Stay tuned for more album details and tour plans in the near future.
