Turbonegro are currently in a undisclosed Oslo studio laying down tracks for their next album, the follow-up of 2003's vastly successful Scandinavian Leather. The working title of the album is Babylon Forever.
Supervising the process is rock'n'roll mastermind Steve McDonald (Redd Kross, Beck). This is the first time the boys have worked with a producer (or "turd polisher" as they themselves choose to call it) and reliable sources within the group apparatus claim the result to be nothing less than astounding!
"We've got 11 hits, all of them beautifully negative switchblade serenades", according to Euroboy, while Happy-Tom compares the new material to "Joan Jett, early Van Halen and Shostakovich, Stalin's in-house composer". Song titles include City Of Satan, Wasted Again and Blow Me (Like The Wind).
Releasedate is set for April 2005.
Blue Christmas California-stylee by Turbonegro
Turbonegro like, TOTALLY, conquer California by bringing Christmas from the land of Santa to San Francisco (Thrasher Skater Of The Year Awards, Great American Music Hall) on December the 18th and TWO(!) exclusive shows at the House Of Blues Hollywood on the 19th and 20th.
In their effort to create Christmas peace within The Desert Rock Scene the boys in blue have invited Queen Of The Stone Age Josh Homme's The Eagles Of Death Metal to open on the 19th and ex-QOTSA Nick Oliveri's Mondo Generator to open on the 20th. Who knows what may come out of this... There is also rumours of SoCal punk legends The Adolescents joining the bill on one of the nights, which will be the first ever Turbojugend US World Convention with fans travelling from three continents to attend.
