The Avalanches are already working on their third album

No squillion year wait this time, then.
Good news everyone – The Avalanches aren’t going to make us wait another sixteen years between albums. Speaking to Sydney’s FBI Radio, Avalanche Robbie Chater revealed that he and bandmate Tony Diblasi have been writing pretty consistently during their downtime off tour. “In the few weeks since we’ve been home from the States, me and Tony have just been writing,” Robbie said. “It’s flowing so quickly. I think getting ‘Wildflower’ out of the way and following up ‘Since I Left You’ feels like a weight’s been lifted. The [new] music is really light, it’s some of the best stuff we’ve done.” 

It seems like they’ve opened the floodgates with ‘Wildflower’, then. It’s just as well, really – we don’t think we could take another decade and a half wait for album number three. The band aren’t setting anything in stone just yet though. They mentioned they have eight tracks in the works, but when it comes to a time-frame The Avalanches said “Who knows when [they’ll be out]? Next year? It’s definitely soon.”

We like soon. Soon is good.
