Sonic Youth New Releases Info
August 4, 1999

Kim Gordon has spewed forth some 'less that possitive' rumours about not just one, but two NEW Sonic Youth albums. Now, for those who are keeping track, Sonic Youth are releasing both SYR 4 and SYR 5, which may be released together. But now Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon has made some comments about the future of the band, and some albums in general. So here's what we know:

FOLLOW UP TO A THOUSAND LEAVES -- the yet untitled album is being put together each and every day. They currently have only a couple of songs written for the album, but they are said to be perfecting things, and trying songs out on the road. If this is indeed the case, I will be going to the Bumbershoot show, and, as always, I will let you know as soon as I hear something.

FOLLOW UP TO THE WHITEY ALBUM -- I know I have made this comment before, but Kim has commented that there will soon be a cover album. Whether this will be punk songs, Pavement songs, or what, it should be noted that Sonic Youth are hard at work on a cover album ... which may be released prior to their new album!

Sonic Youth
Sonic Youth, initially comprising of guitarist / vocalists Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo, guitarist / bassist / vocalist Kim Gordon and drummer Richard Edson, were formed in New York City in 1981. A product of the No-Wave music scene of the late 1970s, the group had their roots in abrasive, experimental music, with Moore and Ranaldo having previously worked with the experimental composer Glenn Branca. The band were joined in 1985 by drummer Steve Shelley, and have now recorded 14 albums together, as well as many side and solo projects. Their work has been consistently challenging and innovative, and they are widely regarded as one of the most intriguing and influential bands of their time.
