During a recent interview with Alternative Addiction, Marianas Trench lead singer Josh Ramsay revealed that the band is planning to release the band’s third album later this year, the highly anticipated follow up to their breakout album Masterpiece Theatre.
“The single is already done and should be ready early summer,” explained Ramasy. “Then we’re probably looking at an early fall release [for the new album.]”
Ramsay says the band has self-produced the tracks they have recorded thus far, but plan to work with a producer before completing the album.
“I am sure we will be working with some people, just not sure who yet,” says Ramsay. “The last record we worked with a few producers, as well as doing a bunch of tracks ourselves. I own a studio now, so as soon as we have a song done we just go in and record it.”
Ramsay says the album’s sound is in the same vein as their previous release, they just pushed themselves even further for the as-of-yet-titled new release.
“The last record to me there was some pop/rock elements to it and there was some art rock,” explained Ramsay. “The songs [on the new album] for the most part are sort of a radio style, pop/top 40 style, and then there are some that are artsy- and more artsy and weird than the ones on the last record. We’re working on a very cool way to sort of integrate them into each other for the record.”
Marianas Trench just finished touring in early March as part of The Glamour Kills Tour 2011, which they toured with The Ready Set, Allstar Weekend, Downtown Fiction, and We Are The In Crowd.
