(Radio.com) It's been three years since Lynyrd Skynyrd's last album Last of a Dyin' Breed and fans won't have to wait much longer for their followup. The band, who've been gearing up for an archival campaign with the June 2 release of their two-disc live set Sweet Home Alabama and the CD and DVD tribute concert One More for the Fans! with cameos from Gregg Allman, Cheap Trick, Peter Frampton and more, will soon be hitting the studio.

According to an interview with the last original member of the group, guitarist Gary Rossington, at Billboard, after the band was approached with a couple of offers, they decided to work on another full-length.

"We've been offered a couple deals," Rossington told Billboard. "The record business is so different now, but they want us to do a new album with new material and we're gonna do it.

"We've been writing it a little bit here and there, and through the years we've written songs we never really used 'cause we didn't have enough time to record them. So we're gonna get do some new material here. I'm not sure when it's gonna come out; it'll probably end up being next year 'cause we're so busy with material this year, but we hope to record it in the fall." Read more here.
