The Drums begin work on second album

By | Published on Wednesday 18 August 2010

The Drums have started writing songs for their second album. In good news for fans of their eponymous debut, they told Clash in a new interview that they “don’t want a whole lot to change”. Bad news for those of you who thought ‘The Drums’ was quite annoying though, I suppose.

Anyway, here’s what the band’s Conor Hanwick had to say: “No, we don’t want to do a whole lot of change. What’s exciting us is songs, not stylistic stuff. Stylistically and sonically and production-wise, the album will sound pretty similar to this [first] one, just with new songs. If something new comes along and we think it feels good we’ll go with it. We’re not gonna shun anything new just because it’s new, but at the same time we’re firm believers in if it’s not broke don’t fix it”.
