Stephin Merritt discusses Future Bible Heroes

In this interview with Stephin Merritt by Exclaim.ca, Mr. Merritt confirms that the next project he will be undertaking will be a new Future Bible Heroes record!!  Information is scant, but for it to have a status update other than being "in the works" is rewarding to hear.  Ten years is too long to wait for a new Future Bible Heroes LP.


  1. Excellent!
    Then he can focus on that long-overdue 6ths album next! :P

  2. I think Mr. Merritt might be done doing press for this album/tour, and if that's the case, then I am continually flummoxed by the fact that NO journalist sees fit to ask Mr. Merritt why the last 6ths record deteriorated. I really want to know what happened to it, and the fate of the band. "Hyacinths & Thistles" remains my very favorite record of all time, so I have a vested interest in this topic!
