Far East Movement to Release Sophomore Album in 2012
Kev Nish told Billboard that he and his bandmates -- J-Splif, Prohgress and DJ Virman -- are getting close to completing their second major-label album. "We want to deliver it in the next two months, at least, to the label," Nish said. "After they give it a listen we'll see where they want to take it - hopefully early 2012."
The band's 2010 album 'Free Wired' spawned two Top 10 hits, 'Like a G6' with the Cataracs and Dev, and 'Rocketeer' with Ryan Tedder. Nish described the sound of the next record: "We'll have a few songs that show the hip-hop roots and the 'Rocketeer' style, and heavy synth dance tracks as well. But the majority of the album is going to be the L.A. dirty bass sound."
Nish said that Lil Wayne may appear on the record, since the rapper expressed his interest when the group opened for him on his summer tour. He added that he can't wait to show off the bass on the new album:
"To accentuate the bass, we bought an old school refurbished 1989 Cadillac limo. I used to install car stereos, so I'm going to hook up the system myself and we're going to take all of our songs in this car and drive around in L.A. and vibe out."
