In a recent interview, legendary drummer/producer Bill Stevenson announced the Descendents have written 11 new songs and recorded all of the drum tracks for their long-awaited new album. When asked about the new record, Stevenson replied:
It’s in the embryonic stages. I have my studio, The Blasting Room, Stephen lives in Tulsa, and he has a studio too. Milo even has a real small recording apparatus in his basement. Karl still lives by me. So I went in a couple of weeks ago and recorded, so we got 11 songs done, just the drums. We’ll be passing those around, Stephen will be putting guitars on ‘em, Karl will be putting bass on ‘em, Milo will be singing on ‘em. We’ll get rolling but it’s not gonna be like “Oh it’ll be done in a month!” It’s gonna take us several months.
We’ll keep you posted as more details on the band’s upcoming album surface. Their last release was “Cool to Be You,” which came out back in 2004 on Fat Wreck Chords.
