Altitudes & Attitude spent time last year in a California studio recording material for the follow-up to its 2014 self-titled EP. Helming the sessions once again was producer Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Steel Panther, Stone Sour), with Jeff Friedl (A Perfect Circle, Ashes Divide) returning behind the kit.
In a brand new interview with Brazil’s Kazagastão (KZG), Bello stated about Altitudes & Attitude: “We did an EP a couple of years ago, and now, next year, we’re coming out with a new record — a whole record we’re coming out with next year we’re very excited about.”
Describing Altitudes & Attitude‘s musical direction as “just rock,” Frank said that it’s been “hard” for him and Ellefson to find the time to work on music for the project. “That’s why we had to wait to put it out,” he said. “We had to wait a long time, ’cause both of our bands are so busy — which is good. But there is downtime… When we start writing a record, there’ll be downtime, and then it’s that time for that.”
