Swarm Of The Lotus frontman (and guitarist) Pete Maturi has revealed that the group is currently working on material for a new album. Here's the official word:
"Things are going well for us and we've been productive as of late. We plan to take as much of this year as it will take to write a new album. So YES, a new one is in the works, to answer some of you guys that have been asking. We are already up to 3 songs being worked on simultaneously and are really digging the vibe and direction we are taking it. It's Swarm for sure, but definitely has some areas that we've never really tapped into before.
"With having 2 guitars again and Jon-John using a double kick kit along with 4 toms and 56 cymbals,Terry Bozzio style, the sky's the limit. We are pushing ourselves to try and write the best songs we've ever written and get more expansive with our sound, while still trying to maintain that raw aggression. Hopefully you guys will dig it, we're having a lot of fun just playing together again. Our overall goal is to be prepared by the end of the year to enter the studio sometime early the following year. No idea who we will work with engineer/studio-wise, although we have some ideas. And no idea who might release it or whatever, as of now. We'll see how things work out and keep you guys informed. For now, it's all about the new stuff and bringing back the heavy."
