If you were wondering where Aussie ex-pats Sick Puppies got to after the release of their 2009 album Tri-Polar, well, worry no more. The group’s bassist Emma Anzai has checked in via her Tumblr account to confirm that the new album is on its way, but won’t be released until it’s perfect.
It would appear that their recent writing and recording sessions have been very fruitful, with Anzai mentioning a flood of new material for the band to narrow down for the final tracklisting, Anzai explains ““Because we are perfectionists and don’t want to mess this up, we are taking our time to make sure this is right. We wrote over 70 songs and could potentially release more of these than 12 for the album, but the truth is we have a need for this to be perfect and just right… and sometimes it takes a little more time for this to be the case.”
It would be hard for the band to not feel pressure given the success of Tri-Polar. The album gave birth to successful singles suck as You’re Going Down, Odd One, Maybe and Riptide, which all charted well. according to Loudwire.
Anzai recently returned Down Under during her down time and found the trip to be “very rejuvenating and revitalizing… it got me ready to come back and start a fresh new year with brand new music to show you guys”.
