In a recent interview drummer Fredrik Larzon of Millencolin says that while the band has already recorded 5 new songs, the material will be used for various releases and compilations while recording for the actual full-length won’t begin until next fall.
“We recorded 5 songs about a month ago. All these will come out this year on different stuff. We’ll record a whole new album next year or fall 2012 but it’ll most definitely be out 2013.”
2012 marks the Millencolin’s 20 year anniversary and to celebrate this the band recently announced a 2-day festival in their hometown of Örebro. The festival, set for June 8-9, will feature other Swedish punk veterans such as The Hives and No Fun At All. More info can be found here.
