Reunited and set to release a new album in 2012.
“The band began work on their fourth studio album, tentatively titled ‘Battle Born’, in May 2011 at their Las Vegas studio.In a Q Magazine interview taken in June, Flowers stated that album would have ‘great stories told through real rock music’, potential songs include a seven-minute epic titled ‘The Slot Tech’, ‘Runaways’ and ‘The Rising Tide.’In September, drummer Ronnie Vannucci told NME that the band would begin recording the album in Nashville, Tennessee in October, and that the producer had been chosen. Both Vannucci and Flowers have stated that the album will feature a heavier use of guitars than their previous album Day & Age“.
In an interview with BBC Radio One’s Zane Lowe, the singer confirmed that the band would put out their fourth studio album in the next twelve months but refused to give a precise release date.
“It’s just whether it’s [released in] the summer time or the winter time,” said Flowers when asked about the band’s plans for a new LP, before adding it was “exciting getting everyone in the room to make some noise.”
The frontman also said that he was eager to move away from the direction of their previous albums, stating:
We don’t want to make ‘Hot Fuss 2′ or ‘Sam’s Town 2′, or ‘Day & Age 2′. We’ll maybe take all that stuff, the best of all of it and do what we know how to do.
