The Exploited explain why they haven’t released an album in over 15 years

The Exploited frontman Wattie Buchan recently explained to Metal Underground why it’s taken so long for the band to release a follow-up to 2003’s Fuck the System. He says:

“We told the label six years ago that we had an album almost ready. We’ve got at least sixteen brilliant songs written, I just need to put lyrics to them, but with my health problems I’ve not been able to do it. We’ve got a couple of songs written but it’s hard to get us together once a week for practice because we all live far away and our guitarist and bassist have jobs. Hopefully with my health being better, we’ll try and get something done, but I’ll never do anything unless it’s a hundrsd percent. We could go into the studio tomorrow and I could throw out some some lyrics, but it wouldn’t be hundred percent and that would be exploiting the punks.”
