The Mighty Mighty Bosstones have seemingly done it all since reuniting some 16 months ago – queue flashbacks of two Hometown Throwdowns, an extensive North American trek with Dropkick Murphys and the release of the B-sides comp., Medium Rare. Well, that is everything except the release of a brand new LP.
Wait . . . what’s that? Have I spoken too soon?
Per the Bosstones’ MySpace:
We have been busy for quite a while now writing songs and recording demos for a new MMB full-length. In June we will begin recording the album in Los Angeles with our good friend Ted Hutt on board as Producer. The process to this point has been really fun and we currently have 20 or so new songs in the works.
The album would mark the band’s first new full-length since 2002’s A Jackknife To A Swan. No word on whether “Impossible Dream” and “Next to Nothing”, two new songs, which were released on a on a new 7″ in January, and still streaming on MySpace, will be included. However, we do know the Bosstones will be hitting the road this summer, at least for four dates.
