Hoobastank Is Officially Done Recording Album #6

Last fall, Hoobastank officially began recording their sixth album, the followup to 2012’s Fight Or Flight. They shared plenty of studio photos and videos as they recorded from October into December. They worked with producer Matt Wallace. The band confirmed that their new record will be out sometime in 2017. Now, Hoobastank is done recording the new album!

Update February 22: Mixing is underway. Mastering comes next!

Now that Hoobastank is done recording all the instruments and vocals, the music will still need to be mixed and mastered. That process can take anywhere from a couple weeks to a few months. We’ll likely get the new album this summer or fall!

Hoobastank first started writing and demoing new songs way back in 2014, and by spring 2015, frontman Doug Robb 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! In summer 2015, he announced that they were ready to find a producer and officially record the album, and he later predicted that we’d have the new album in summer 2016. Since they recorded between October 2016 and now, it looks like the new plan may be for the record to be out in summer 2017.
