Bret Michaels says that “it’s time” for POISON to release “at least a new song or two.”
Last week, it was officially announced that POISON will team up with DEF LEPPARD, MÖTLEY CRÜE and JOAN JETT & THE BLACKHEARTS for a 22-date North American stadium tour next summer. “The Stadium Tour” kicks off July 7 at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium and winds down on September 5 at Los Angeles’s SoFi Stadium.
Speaking to Argentinian journalist Lucas Gordon at the 2019 Hollywood Christmas Parade on December 1, Michaels was asked if there are any plans for POISON to release a new album. Bret responded:
“I’m always working on brand new music, solo, and I think with POISON, it’s time for at least a new song or two. I would love that.”
Last year, POISON bassist Bobby Dall said that the band “should” be making a new studio album but claimed that he didn’t know if it would happen.
“I’m not going to bullsh*t you and say there’s any [new music] in the process [of being made],” he told All That Shreds.
“Would I like there to be? Yes. But, it’s a matter of everyone having the time. Everybody in the band has other commitments. Some members have younger children than others. So between those two issues, it’s difficult, and, you know, [there are] health issues as we get older. Should we be making a new record? Yes, definitely. But will it happen? I don’t know.”
