The Aggrolites working on new album

In a recent interview with Times Standard, The Aggrolites front man, Jesse Wagner, gave an update regarding the band’s next album, stating:

“We’ve been demoing a lot the last few months. We had a break from December to March so there has been time to put a lot of material together and get creative. So far we have a good selection of songs, rhythms and ideas to work with and throw on the next album. We did a lot of touring in 2011, so the band definitely has its chops up.”

Wagner also discussed their decision to leave Hellcat Records:

”Hellcat was awesome — we still love the Hellcat family and always will. They were very good to us. (But) we always knew how crucial it was for us to release 45s, especially being an early reggae-soul-influenced band. Young Cub offered that to us and it was a great experience working with them.”

The Aggrolites’ most recent release is “Rugged Road,” which came out in February (or March, depending on your format of choice) on Young Cub Records.

    JOE,Your album sounds great and I, [ or ortehs ] could not tell the difference between this and some other studio done albums.My advice from the student to the teacher is to do your best and let things happen as they will. Whatever it is you lack or are searching for, in time will reveal itself, if you have patience.As you always say that nothing is perfect , at least not in this world; so search yourself and see if you are trying to catch that elusive butterfly, maybe without noticing?Take Care,Always,TOMMY
