St. Vitus — who will be touring with Helmet and Crowbar this spring — are working on new songs they plan to record this summer, according to frontman Scott “Wino” Weinrich, who recently spoke to Hellbound.
“We’re already doing new material,” said Wino. “I wrote the lyrics to a song we played live on our last European tour. It went over really well. We’re getting together to work on an album in June or July. We’re going to go to [drummer] Henry [Vasquez]’s house and record.”
That’s rad. New St. Vitus. Rock on. I know Jon Weiderhorn is fucking psyched.
“I think it’s going to be easier [to record] because the older you get the more times you’ve done it. I’ve been at this for a long time now and I’ll be ready to do my part.”
Wino further commented on St. Vitus’ longevity, and why they’ve managed to remain relevant after all these years.
“Because it comes from the gut. The music has that low tone and it hits you in those emotional places. I’ve always tried to make the lyrics just as interesting as the music. It’s always been a little bit dark but I’m not drawn to the happy stuff. I like music that grabs you by the balls.”
