Mike Pont/Getty ImagesHaving finally made it into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, power pop legends Cheap Trick are ramping up their recording schedule.
In a Twitter post Monday, the group announced, “We’ve been in the studio working on a new album — hope to have completed by spring and released at the beginning of summer 2017.” The still-untitled set comes hot on the heels of Cheap Trick’s well-received 2016 album Bang, Zoom, Crazy…Hello, which featured the single, “When I Wake Up Tomorrow.”
Prior to that, the band hadn’t issued a new album since 2009.
As previously reported, Cheap Trick will be on tour this summer with Foreigner on a joint trek celebrating during which both band will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of the release of their debut albums.
