In spring 2014, Hoobastank started working on their sixth studio album, the followup to 2012’s Fight Or Flight. Earlier this year, frontman Doug Robb was ready to talk about the upcoming music. In a few interviews, he revealed that they had 30 songs written and demoed, more than they’d ever had for an album before. He also mentioned two new song titles! This summer, he announced that they were ready to find a producer and officially record the album.
And when will we get this new album? Doug says sometime in mid-2016. He guesses we’ll get the new music next summer!
Doug: We are writing. We have some shows in South America in a few weeks. India. A lot of traveling. And then new music next year.
Interviewer: Early next year, I hope!?
Doug: No. Mid-next year. Summer.
Watch the short interview below:
It’s exciting to know that new Hoobastank music is so close to coming out! Summer is still at least seven months away, but in the meantime, we can look forward to more studio sneak peeks as they record the album. We still don’t know who’s producing or what musical direction the band is moving in this time. But based on their first five albums, we know it will be good.
