Believe it or not but beloved Scottish synthpop trio CHVRCHES is currently still touring the world on the back of last year’s debut The Bones Of What You Believe. The group just finished a run of US dates and plans a few more UK concerts before they finally take some time off. And according to a new interview with band member Iain Cook it might take a while before we can expect their sophomore album.

Cook told Classic Pop: ‘You often see bands with a successful debut who get cocky, so they hash out something sub-standard and nobody gives a shit again. So we’re not over-confident, but pressure can work against you too. We’re not going to put out anything we aren’t happy with. That could take four months, it could take two years.’ He furthermore adds: ‘It’s too early to talk about new songs, because nothing is finished.’

Last year Cook also talked with us about influences and the band’s working ethics. Although a second album might not happen that soon fans can already enjoy new CHVRCHES material today. The three-piece recently premiered a new song called Richard Pryor in their live shows. You can find a rip of the track below, taken from this year’s Austin City Limits Festival.
