Sick Puppies are inching closer to their return and bassist Emma Anzai has checked in with an update on their album progress. Anzai reveals that the group has been extremely productive coming up with new material and they’re in the process of narrowing down that tracks that will make the final disc.
In her Tumblr posting, Anzai explains, “Because we are perfectionists and don’t want to mess this up, we are taking our time to make sure this is right. We wrote over 70 songs and could potentially release more of these than 12 for the album, but the truth is, we have a need for this to be perfect and just right … and sometimes it takes a little more time for this to be the case.”
This would be the band’s first album since their successful 2009 effort, ‘Tri-Polar,’ which spawned four charting hard rock singles — ‘You’re Going Down,’ ‘Odd One,’ ‘Maybe’ and ‘Riptide.’
Anzai adds that as Australian transplants in the U.S., she recently took the time to return home and found it “very rejuvenating and revitalizing.” She adds, “It got me ready to come back and start a fresh new year with brand new music to show you guys.”
Sick Puppies spent time on the road last fall as part of the ‘Triple Threat’ tour with Seether and Kyng.
