Rolo Tomassi are currently working on their third album, which will be their first since the departure of guitarist Joe Nicholson and bassist Joseph Thorpe earlier this year.

Keyboardist James Spence told NME: “We’ve nearly finished writing it. The plan is to go into the studio at the start of June and start recording then. We’re 70% of the way there, we’ve got a few weeks left though, so there’s no big rush”.

Of the direction their new music is taking he said: “It’s a more straight-up, heavy sounding and much more direct. You can get your teeth into it much quicker, people who didn’t have patience before with our music before will be into this record. It’s still technical, but we’re using the mathy bits more sparingly”.
