Grandaddy have finished work on their forthcoming album, Just Like The Family Cat, reports Billboard.
Singer Jason Lytle has said that the new release marks a step away from the band's previous work:
"It's really big and luscious and gooey," he told Billboard. "It's an extreme of everything. The immersion that each song required was insane; it was very time consuming, but it's done this week."
Just Like The Family Cat has taken a year and a half to realise and follows the impending release (September 27th) of an EP, The Excerpts From the Diary of Todd Zilla EP.
"The [songs on the new album] are about the thoughtlessness and mindlessness of sprawl," Lytle continued.
As yet the band have announced no tour dates to accompany either release.
