Violent Soho will release the long-awaited follow-up to 2016's WACO next year, but fans shouldn't be hoping for an extensive amount of touring following the record's release.
Discussing the new album backstage at Good Things Festival in Sydney on The Green Room with Neil Griffiths podcast, guitarist James Tidswell said that, despite taking some well-needed time off, the Brisbane band don't plan on filling up the calendar with shows.
"We'll never be back on the grind," Tidswell told host Neil Griffiths.
"We did two hundred and something shows in 2010 and that was our grind. So from here on out, it's like, maintaining it in a way that we enjoy it and love it... we've guaranteed or committed to each other one tour.
"So we're gonna do an album and then one national tour, maybe a couple of spot shows or whatever, but at the moment that's just where it's at."

Tidswell and frontman Luke Boerdam said that while a release date for the new album is yet to be confirmed, they are hoping to release at least one new single in January after dropping A-OK and Vacation Forever in recent weeks.
