Kim Deal has announced that the Breeders are currently in the studio working on a new album.

The band, who were put on hiatus after 2009's Fate to fatal EP due to Deal's commitments with The Pixies, are now coming back. It follows on from the band reuniting in March 2013 to mark the 20th anniversary of their album, Last Splash. Now that Deal has left the Pixies she is also free to pursue other projects, the first of which will be a new Breeders album. 

In an interview with Stereogum she confirmed that things were happening with songs already being rehearsed for what will be the band's first full length LP since 2008. She did however remain coy about what the songs would sound like.

"We’re down in the basement recording and the songs are sounding good," she said. "Today we’re working on Josephine’s song and it’s sounding really good. I’ve got a good melody line for it and got some lyrics."

"So that’s what we’re going to be recording today, one of her songs. Then I’ve got two that have lyrics and a melody line but I don’t like the drum part on one of them. The other one sounds pretty cool. We’ll probably get those three going. And I have other songs. There’s one song that I really like but I don’t think Josephine likes so much, but I really like it."
