Speaking at the launch of London Legends Rock Masterclasses, where he will advise budding percussionists from Apr. 27, Avory told Spinner, "Things are always bubbling under or over with the Kinks -- I'm never quite sure if we're going to do them or not. We are certainly doing another album. We've got old tracks which need to be baked. You have to go through this process to transfer them to digital, it's a bit of a process and you only get one shot at it.
The drummer confirmed, "We've certainly got eight tracks we could use there, so we're going to have to do some more to make the numbers up for an album."
Speaking about the famously feuding rock 'n' roll Davies siblings, Avory said the delay in releasing the new album is because "in our case it's Ray and Dave that have got to work together, once they've slotted together, we can go ahead. All the while they are not wanting to do what the other wants to do, it goes nowhere."
The Kinks last performed together in 1996, and are now one of the few '60s British bands whose members are all still alive and performing music.
Avory is just one of the artists taking part in the five-day Rock Masterclass at West London's Metropolis Studios next month. Others teaching and coaching include the Sex Pistols' Glen Matlock, Squeeze's Chris Difford and Ian McLagan of the Faces and Small Faces.
