Having taken time off after their hometown appearance at the Leeds Festival last year, frontman Ricky Wilson has told the BBC that a state of inertia has spurred him back to work.
He said, "After a couple of months [off] we got bored. Then I got really bored, then mind-numbingly bored and that's when you start thinking about the fact you want to get up and do something again."
Wilson confirmed that he and the band's other main songwriter, drummer Nick Hodgson, had started working in the latter's new studio.
"We're playing around at the moment," said Wilson. "I'm sending him words and lyrics in the mail. He's sending me CDs in the mail."
Wilson refused to be drawn into unveiling a release date for the follow-up to 2008's 'Off With Their Heads', however. "There's no release date - what would be the point? It's funny, I read on the internet people going, 'When is the new album coming out?' Give us a chance!"
