So, Liam has a little neat interview with NME about the upcoming Download Festival. Which pretty much confirms a new track at Download to be dropped. However that could be AWOL or Dogbite. Also, the working album title is “How To Steal A Jet Fighter”. Like the sound of the title? Let us know. Enjoy the interview!
Liam Howlett’s ready to go toe-to-toe with Sabbath
NME: Do you comfortable playing a metal festival like Download, Liam?
“Yeah man. Download, the fans, they’re not there to fuck about. People are into loud, uncompromising shit.”
Are you looking forward to seeing the likes of Metallica and Sabbath…?
“Nah. I won’t be staying. I won’t hang around.”
Will there be new songs?
“The idea is that we’ll turn up at Download playing some new shit. But playing festivals helps with the music. I’m best if you pull me offstage and throw me right in the studio, otherwise you’re not thinking about where the music is going to end up. I’m into the idea of sticking something out, just a track. Just something to remind people we’re still around. But nothing’s set in stone.”
How’s it sounding?
“We’re really excited about it. The last record was… kind of a party album, I guess. We were all happy to be back together again. But the best tunes on that album are the ones that have less of that. It’s definitely going heavier, darker. The title we’re working with is ‘How To Steal A Jet Fighter’. But that might change. Who knows?”
