Lydia has confirmed that they are working on a new album instead of an EP. They're trying to have it out by early next year and they'll record it with Matt Malpass. Leighton also confirmed that The Cinema have a few new songs and may be touring this fall before a Lydia fall tour.
From the InterviewA few months ago, we saw that you might be working on a new EP or LP for Lydia. Were you writing or recording?
Yeah we were recording a bit of it. We have probably like less than two songs that are tracked and done at this point. But as I was finishing the two songs, we were thinking about doing an EP, but I had three or four more, so thereís about five songs that are written at this point....
