Shellac confirm work on new LP

Shellac haven’t issued an LP since 2007, but that could soon change, as guitarist/vocalist Steve Albini has confirmed the band are finishing up recording sessions for a new album.  Though Albini noted that a release date has yet to be pegged for the currently untitled LP, he confirmed to The A.V. Club during an interview at his Electrical Audio studio in Chicago that the music has almost all been recorded for the set.
He hinted that they’ve been working on the record off and on “for the last seven years so,” and that it will feature a number of tracks Shellac have showcased onstage. Albini added that the LP could feature nine songs, though he stated that the sequencing has yet to be locked down. Shellac expect to issue the record on longtime label Touch and Go.
