Marillion are targeting an early 2016 release for their new album according to an announcement from the band.
The group are currently rehearsing for a series of live dates through the first half of 2015, but reveal that they’ll spend the rest of the year writing and recording new material.
Say the band in their statement: “In the mornings we come into the studio and jam, then proceed to try and remember songs we might not have played for years – or ever! It’s a slow process but it’s going well.
“After the conventions we will spend the rest of the year writing and recording the new album which is due for release in early 2016. We are only escaping the studio for the Ramblin’ Man Fair in July and Cruise To The Edge in November.”
Marillion released a live album, A Sunday Night Above The Rain, last year whilst guitarist Steve Rothery put out his own solo album, The Ghosts Of Pripyat.
Marillion’s last studio album was 2012’s Sounds That Can’t Be Made.
