In an interview with Rock DJ Tom Russell on Maiden Day, McBrain said: "We're scheduling to get together to write the new album in November or December this year.

"We have actually booked a studio and I think we'll kick off in the second week of January with the new record.... As to touring - the end of the year, or definitely 2011. We may actually go out at the end of 2010. Once you've got the new album finished and packaged, and the record company's happy with all the bits and pieces, then you want to go touring." - More from Nicko and the audio for the full interview
