Extreme say new album will definitely be recorded this autumn

Extreme 2015

Extreme’s new album will definitely be recorded this Autumn according to frontman Gary Cherone.

The band had previously said that the album would be out during 2014, but the year passed without a new release.

Guitarist Nuno Bettencourt said last week that the follow up to 2008’s Saudades De Rock was coming along “slowly but surely.”

Speaking with SiriusXM, Cherone now says: “We’re all feeling the pressure of putting out something new.

“We’re writing, we’re doing demos. Now it’s like, ‘Let’s get busy – let’s get some new music out.’”

The band have been touring heavily celebrating the 25th anniversary of breakthrough album Pornograffitti, with Cherone commenting: “That’s all been great. Obviously, this summer, you take advantage of the season with festivals.”

But he adds: “It’s about all of us getting in a room to record – and that’s in the fall. We’ll find time to do it. We’ll be ready. The songs will be there.”

Extreme confirm they’re working on a new album


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.”

You can watch a trailer for the Pornografitti Live tour below:

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
