Our cover stars reveal Frank Black and co are working on new material.
Hotly-tipped Swords quartet Kodaline completed work on their debut album, In A Perfect World, in Rockfield Studios, Wales, last December.
In the current Hot Press cover story, the band open up about their illustrious studio buddies.
As the Irish lads plugged away in Studio Two, legendary alt-rockers Pixies – who haven't released an album since '91's Trompe Le Monde – were in Studio One.
"Yeah, we could hear them jamming," singer Stephen Garrigan says matter-of-factly.
What did it sound like?
"It sounded like Pixies!" laughs guitarist Mark Prendergast. "Over breakfast you'd hear the bass and drums rattling. Or you'd walk by them with a cup of tea and just go 'alright, how you going?' We met Frank Black properly one night. We were going over to see this massive reverb chamber they have at Rockfield and he just walked over to us in a pair of shorts and went 'Hey guys, what's up?!' Legend."
Pixies aren't the only big names that Kodaline have come across during their recent ascent. The new issue of Hot Press, on sale now, has more on their encounters with Billy Joel, Julian Lennon and... George Osborne, British Chancellor Of The Exchequer?!
