Jon out the Fratellis has been putting minds of their fans at rest. They seem to have been worried about the second album:
That's continuity, then, as the first album sounded like a band who wasn't worried about what it was going to come out like.
"The new one has been half-written since we did the first album. There's no great mystery to it, just write a bunch of songs that are better than the first lot, so we did."
This is all starting to sound a little we're so good at sophomore albums, isn't it?
"I'm not going to make any great proclamation as to how good it is as it's all in the head at the moment. All I'll say is that it will be hands down better than the first one, and if this wasn't the case we'd give up.
"We'll play you some new tunes come the end of the month and they'll be thunderous."
We know Jon probably didn't mean to imply he didn't want people with hearing or speech problems to be part of his fanbase, but that's what he seems to have done by accident: "Thankfully none of our fans are deaf or dumb."
That might be the sort of thing that happens when you don't worry enough about your work.
