Thurston Moore has a new album out named Demolished Thoughts, but he’s not letting that get in the way of the work with his main band. Moore claims Sonic Youth will be getting together later this year to record new material, which will form the official follow-up to the 2009 record The Eternal.
“We’ll just gather and see what happens,” he said in an interview with NME. “We made the decision to have a good solid year of not doing too much as a band. We really decided to put the brakes on the juggernaut that was the band.” Moore was speaking to the publication during a brief solo tour in the U.K.
“We’d pretty much reached this decision before the gig we played on New Year’s Eve [at Hammersmith Apollo with Factory Floor, Shellac and The Pop Group]. We just wanted to regenerate. I like doing shows like New Year’s Eve where we just play a catalogue of what we do but at the same time I feel [when we do this] that people have decoded us.”
NME also has the set list from Moore’s solo show in London, check it out over here.
