American duo Royal Trux announce plans to record first new album in 18 years

Royal Trux, the duo of Jennifer Herrema and Neil Hagerty, have signed with Mississippi label Fat Possum Records to re-release the entire digital catalogue from the duo's 1988 self-titled debut up to 2000's pre-hiatus album Pound for Pound (not including their two major label releases).

Herrema and Hagerty have also confirmed plans to enter the studio this summer to record their first new studio album in 18 years, also set for release on Fat Possum.

"The new album is me and Neil, Kid Millions on drums and Brian McKinley (Black Bananas) on bass, but there’s at least three or four songs where we’re going to bring in some surprise people," says Jennifer Herrema.

"We always like to give ourselves parameters and deadlines. Neil and I have already told ourselves the record will be done by August. It's going to involve a lot of visuals, and there's a game involved, an actual game. We've got some crazy shit going on. It's going to be next level, the whole process is going to be something that's never been done before.”

The first set of Royal Trux reissues are Cats and Dogs, Accelerator and Veterans of Disorder, which are all set for release this Friday (March 9).
