Y&T might release new album in 2014

2014 may still be far away, but Y&T guitarist Dave Meniketti recently told Bam Magazine that their next album may arrive early that year in time for their 40th anniversary. He states:

“We usually do best when we take some time off to concentrate on writing. With that in mind, I would suspect we will all be writing during any bits of time off we have in the upcoming year, including right now. When we have enough material to know we’re close, then we’ll sort it all out–but for now, I have no idea when the next CD will be done. I’m hopeful that it will be by early 2014, which will be the band’s 40th year anniversary. Time will tell.”

Y&T’s latest album, Facemelter, came out in 2010 on Frontiers Records and was their first one since 1997’s Endangered Species.

New Y&T album in the works

Posted by Metal Dude on Monday, October 22, 2012 at 8:04 PM (PST)

In a recent interview with Sweden’s Metalshrine, Y&T guitarist John Nymann revealed that the band is planning to make a follow-up to 2010’s Facemelter. He states:

“We just released a live album. I’m not gonna say we really planned it, but every time we come off this two-month tour here in the fall, the band is really tight and solid and we play this final show at Mystic Theater and we do it every year and it’s always a great show and we’re well rehearsed by then, so we went, “Why don’t we shoot a video or let’s just document it and do something?” and since we were doing that, Tom Size brought all his recording equipment to link up with the DVD, but the problem with this place is that it’s got a terrible lighting truss and it just doesn’t look good enough for a DVD, so after we saw the footage we went, “Naahhh, it’s no good.” But we started listening back to the tracks and we go, “Fuck, it’s pretty hot!” So we thought, “Let’s just release this thing.” And we didn’t think much of it. It was just gonna be a underground thing, but Frontiers said, “We want that record!” so it counts as another part of our contract, so we gave it to them. It made a pretty big splash, so that’s good. It’s the perfect record if you’re a Y&T fan, because it’s our whole show and it covers all the bases. There’s a lot of good stuff on there. But we’re definitely full of ideas and ready to go and keep playing. “Facemelter”, it was a surprise how good that turned out considering we had no ideas going into the studio. I mean, I had a few and Phil had a few, but it wasn’t like… we were under contract and Jill said to us, “You have to have this record done in three months!” and so we just started and then boom after a couple of weeks, the ideas started to flow and we had more than enough.”
