The Drones Start On Follow Up To ‘Havillah’

Written by Brayden Darke on March 6, 2012

The Drones frontman Gareth Liddiard has revealed that he has started the writing process for what will be the follow-up to the band’s 2008 album Havillah.

Speaking with triple j’s Dom Alessio on Home & Hosed he said:

“I’ve been writing but, I mean, no one has played yet – Mike’s in London, Dans in Melbourne and I’m in the country – but I’ve been writing. I’m just getting past the teenage poetry part, you know what I mean.”

He also mentioned his troubles picking up on the writing process again:

“Every time you start writing something you just start from scratch so I’m relearning how to do it and I’m just getting good again. It’s like a muscle you haven’t flexed in a while; it’s kind of all blank and yucky. So my initial attempts are always embarrassing and I have to erase them.”

If it all goes well, we could have the new album out by the end of 2012.

“[We’ll release it] at the end of the year if all goes well. It’s early days yet but that’s the plan,”

The Drones released a live DVD called A Thousand Mistakes last year. Liddiard released his solo album in 2010, which earned him a nomination for a 2011 ARIA Award.
