Suggs: New Madness Album Released Next Year

madnessMadness frontman Suggs has confirmed the Ska legends plan to release a new studio album next year.

Speaking to Digital Spy, Suggs revealed that, despite a delay in finalising the album due their dissatisfaction with the original finished product, they still believe the album will be released in 2012.

“It’ll definitely come out next year – hopefully we’ll finish it this year,” he said. “We were hoping to get it done but then we decided to postpone the whole thing because we weren’t completely satisfied with what we’ve done so far.”

“We’re working on it and I think it’s that thing, when you’re young you have all the time in the world. We don’t spend 24 hours a day working on music like we used to when we were younger, so you have to do it in batches – sporadic, intense.”

“Before ‘…Norton Folgate’ we made an album of covers and we were really trying to get back to the reggae, ska and dance roots of what we did when we first started.”

The record will be the band’s first since 2009’s ‘The Liberty of Norton Folgate‘, which broke into the UK Top 5 upon its release in the May of that year.
