Extreme guitarist Nuno Bettencourt has confirmed that the band are working on a new album, and that they hope to release it by the end of the year.
The US rockers are about to embark upon a series of gigs in the UK, playing their breakthrough album, Pornografitti, in full.
Said Bettencourt: “This is the first time we’ve ever gone on the road without new music – and I’m kind of embarrassed about that, to be honest.
“Doing the Pornografitti album gives you a bit of an excuse. But we’re definitely working on stuff and by the end of the year we should have a new album in.”

Extreme’s last album was 2008’s Saudades De Rock. There is no official title or release date for the follow up yet, but Bettencourt says it will definitely be a full length album rather than an EP.
Extreme will play:
4th of Jul: Academy, Manchester
5th of Jul: O2 Academy, Glasgow
7th of Jul: Birmingham Institute
8th of Jul: Forum, London
9th of Jul: Forum, London
