The Winery Dogs mainman Richie Kotzen has said that the band will head in to the studio in May to start recording their new album.
Speaking to VintageRock.com Kotzen revealed that he, bassist Billy Sheehan and drummer Mike Portnoy have been working on new material that he says is both “crazy” and “cool”.
“We actually started writing music a couple of weeks ago at my house and got a bunch of ideas,” says the singer and guitarist. “I think it’s going to be a cool record. We’ve got a couple of songs that we did at the piano, some acoustic things, crazy stuff and it’s going to be a fun record.
“We’ll probably start recording it in May and, realistically, it will be out at the end of summer.”
Last month drummer Mike Portnoy said that the band were eyeing up a world tour to coincide with the new release.
