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.
