CHEAP TRICK: 14 Songs Completed For Next Album

According to, CHEAP TRICK — who are currently on the road opening for AEROSMITH — plan to head to Europe in July, play more stateside dates in August and then return to the studio. Nearly 14 songs have been completed for CHEAP TRICK's next album, which should surface next year. Among the songtitles set to appear on the CD are "Gazoonheit", "Give It Away", "Two Pickets to Tittsburgh" and "Arabesque".

In other news, CHEAP TRICK have filmed a live DVD, "From Tokyo to You: Live in Japan", which documents a Japanese tour in support of the group's 2003 album "Special One" (Big 3).

"The documentary turned into them asking us questions," guitarist Rick Nielsen told "And we did them all separate with no script, so it was just kind of interesting. Because usually, if you put all four of us in a room, (drummer) Bun E. Carlos is kind of quiet, (bassist) Tom Petersson doesn't say much and I'm the big mouth."

"And when you see (vocalist) Robin (Zander) and I at Budokan, it's like 'Hey, we made this joint famous but this place made us famous too,' Yeah, we know it. We don't think we are supermen. We are musicians who are lucky to be playing."
