Back in May, Robbie Chater popped into Sydney-based FBI Radio and spilled the beans that the follow-up to The Avalanches’ long-awaited second album ‘Wildflower’ was already in the works. He said: “The [new] music is really light, it’s some of the best stuff we’ve done”.
Well, he wasn’t wrong that they’d made a speedy return to music-making. In a new Instagram post, Avalanches masterminds Robbie and Tony Diblasi confirmed that they were working on their third album. Accompanying a pic of a huge range of vinyl records, they added the caption “LP#3 – Day 1”.
So then, while there’s no telling how long it’ll take to produce the new album, it looks like it won’t be 16 years…
