"This year's going to be a banner year on a number of levels, but we're throwing our hat in the ring," Gibbons told Houston's Fox 26, shortly before leaving for the band's summer European tour.
Gibbons confirmed that producer Rick Rubin was on board for the as-yet-untitled album, which has now "finished tracking" and awaits mixing. "Rick has successfully brought in his particular piece of magic in offering a few suggestions," Gibbons said.

Gibbons also mentioned that tracks so far recorded are "loud and fast" and "a return to the roots." more on this story
