Classic rockers Thin Lizzy have not released an album in 29 years, dating back to before the death of frontman Phil Lynott with 1983’s Thunder and Lightning.
That is, until now. The band is going into the studio next month to record a new album with current members Brian Downey (from the original lineup in 1969), Scott Gorham (joined 1974), Darren Wharton (joined 1980), Marco Mendoza (joined 1996), Ricky Warwick and Damon Johnson (both joined in 2010).
The album will be produced by Kevin Shirley (Journey, Iron Maiden, Rush, Joe Bonamassa, Black Country Communion) and recorded at his studio in Los Angeles.
Scott Gorham commented “We are all excited about the new record but especially Ricky and Damon, they just can’t wait to start recording! You have got six guys there that are chomping at the bit that can’t wait to get this thing going.”
Ricky Warwick recently told Rock Fusion “Obviously it’s got to be to a great fucking standard. We’re all as nervous about it as the fans, but in a good way. The bar has been set very high and we will only release what we 100% believe in, whether that’s two tracks or 12 tracks. I mean, I’d love it to be a full album, but we’ll just need to take it as it goes.”
