The Breeders are returning to the alt. rock scene with a new album. According to a recent interview between Stereogum and lead vocalist Kim Deal, the band has been recording in her basement. Deal had this to say:

"[We're] going to keep trying. We're down in the basement recording and and the songs are sounding good. And honestly, I don't know what else to do.

This is what I like to do. I like to record and play songs. I don't think there's much of an industry for it these days, but that's just what I do, you know?"

Right now the group consists of Deal, her sister Kelley, Josephine Wiggs, and Jim Macpherson. The band is fresh off a tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of their infamous 1993 album, 'Last Splash.' This will be their first release since 2009, following Deal's recent solo exploit, during which she released a series of singles.

Coincidentally, Deal's former band, the Pixies, will be releasing their new album, 'Indie Cindy,' this year.
