EXTREME guitarist Nuno Bettencourt has confirmed to Masters Of Shred that the band is putting the finishing touches on its first new album since 2008’s “Saudades De Rock”.
“We’ve been threatening to [release] a new album for almost 10 years now, but I think this time it’s for real,” he said. “I mean, at the very least I know that we have tracks done. And we have about 20, 25 songs to choose from, that we’re excited about. We’ve gotta whittle it down to 12, which will be fun. But, yeah, we’re doing it. A lot of the stuff’s done. It’s definitely an edgier, heavier record for us, which is fun. But I’m excited.”
