Swedish hard rockers THE POODLES will enter the studio in February 2013 to begin recording their fifth album for a tentative late spring release.
Commented the band: "It's been way too long, I know. [We] hope you've missed us as much as we miss you.
"By now you probably think we have all quit, retired, moved to a small house in the countryside and are sitting on the porch sipping iced tea in a rocking chair all day long, but that's not so. We've been keeping busy these last seven-eight months with all kinds of different stuff and we've enjoyed some well-earned time off as well!
"Last week we all got together again though, sat down, had a cold one and tried to figure out a plan for things to come. So, just to give you guys a quick update we have just started writing material for a new album and it's sounding awesome. Some really great stuff has been coming up already and there'll be plenty more before we're done, rest assured!"
THE POODLES' fourth album, "Performocracy", entered the official chart in Sweden at position No. 1. Released on April 15, 2011 in Europe (May 5, 2011 in North America) via Frontiers Records, the CD was again produced by Mats Valentin, but this time Tobias Lindell (EUROPE, MUSTASCH) mixed the 12 outstanding tracks that make up the effort.
