‘Legendary’ heavy metal band Spinal Tap have announced they will be recording new material this year.
Famous for their hugely popular ‘mockumentary’ This Is Spinal Tap, the group of deluded rockstars have announced they will be releasing new material available for download later this year – followed by physical releases.
Derek Smalls (aka actor Harry Shearer) informed BBC Radio 5Live which songs would be released later this year; “We’ve never recorded the song we did at Live Earth, ‘Warmer Than Hell’,” he said. “I think they [Spinal Tap] are trying to revisit their old success.”
Unlike some rock sceptics/cynics out there, I’m a huge fan of Spinal Tap and love the fact they’re making a return this year. Having seen the film upteen times and also owning the album This Is Spinal Tap, I will definitley be buying their latest material. Maybe a tour is in order as well? Spinal Tap touring the UK stadiums would sell out many times over and nothing would stop me from getting a ticket, ‘Stonehenge’ live would be a true sight to behold.
