Thin Lizzy are set to release their first brand new album in 29 years. The band will go into the studio next month, recording their first LP without former frontman Phil Lynott, who died in 1986.
This new material will be the band's 12th studio album following their 1983's 'Thunder and Lightning'. The band, who have been touring for the past two years, told Hot Press that they might be playing some of their new material at their Dublin Olympia show on December 13.
Along with Damon Johnson and Scott Gorham, the current Thin Lizzy lineup consists of drummer Brian Downey, keyboardist Darren Wharton, bassist Marco Mendoza and vocalist Ricky Warwick.
Gorham said: "I'll be going out to Los Angeles at the end of the month to work on some songs with Damon and then I think we will start recording in October in our producer Kevin Shirley's studio."
Shirley has worked with Iron Maiden and Led Zeppelin. Gorham added: "We are all excited about the new record but especially Ricky and Damon, they just can’t wait to start recording! You have got six guys there that are chomping at the bit that can’t wait to get this thing going."
Thin Lizzy formed in Ireland in 1969 and their classic hits include 'The Boys are Back in Town' and 'Jailbreak.'
