WACO have announced a new album!
Title Rock Spirit Absolute joythe London-based punk band’s next album is their third album and is set to be released in September this year, via Venn Records.
Produced by Steve Sear (aka the King of Watford™), the band’s third album was recorded at Monolith studios; “the best heavy metal studio in London” erase the band.
“Steve managed to get the best out of us,” they say of the process. “We created all of our releases with him because we love working with him so much. He’s a talented, compassionate, and supportive guy, and he welcomes our free, exciting, and sometimes confusing approach to songwriting. Above all, he really understands what we are trying to do with this group.
Along with the announcement of the new album, WACO have released a new music video for a new single Barry Gibb was my landlord. Speaking of the song, guitarist james robinson said, “Barry Gibb was my landlord is our ode to an icon. barry is not only a great songwriter, he is also a very good owner. When I lived in Manchester he made sure the rent from the old BEE GEES childhood home was affordable for skint musicians. In a cruel capitalist world that stifles all creativity it can’t market, it’s hard for artists to just stay alive. Barry is one of the good guys. Well done buddy. We’ve put you on the guest list.
