Thin Lizzy guitarist Damon Johnson has announced the band's
plans to enter the studio and begin work on an album of new
material. Since reforming after the death of original frontman and
songwriter Phil Lynott in 1986, the irish rockers have been a
mainstay on the european touring circuit and despite releasing a
handful of live albums have not released any new material since
their intial breakup follwing 1983's 'Thunder and Lightning'.
Guitarist Damon Johnson, who joined in 2011, tweeted the
following: "Thin Lizzy enters the recording studio tomorrow…with
electric guitars and amps a'blazin'; and Brian Downey's full drum
In a recent interview with Rock Fusion, Thin Lizzy frontman
Ricky Warwick talked about the band's plans for a new record,
"We've just been working on some ideas that we all have. We all
write in the band, so we've just been sitting down and playing each
other our stuff, and it's been really great. I mean, it's really
early days, but everyone's very excited and got loads of ideas, and
we're all working really great together as a band, and that's what
it's all about - let's get in there and see what ideas we have and
take it from there. It was all very productive and we all had a
great time. We're back in next week so we will just take it from
there and see what happens. Ideally we'd love to record as much as
we can, but obviously it's got to be to a great fucking standard.
We're all as nervous about it as the fans, but in a good way. The
bar has been set very high and we will only release what we 100
percent believe in, whether that's two tracks or 12 tracks. I mean,
I'd love it to be a full album, but we'll just need to take it as
Asked about plans for a live DVD in the future, Warwick
responded, "Yeah, there's talk about that further down the line. I
mean, VH1 are revisiting us, they're updating 'Behind The Music' to
include the new members in the band. Last year was all about
re-establishing the band, the brand and the name and showing that
what we have is something very real, and I think we've got over
that hump now and this year we can move on. It's a case of taking
it one step at a time. THIN LIZZY fans are very passionate and so
loyal, you can't just go, 'Look, the band's back together, here's
an album, here's a tour, and you'rd going fucking like it.' You've
got to do it one bit at a time and win people over, and that's what
we're doing. Like I said, at the end of the day, we are all fans,
