Travie McCoy Says Next Gym Class Heroes Album Will Be Released This Year [Video]


Lead singer of pop/rock band Gym Class Heroes Travie McCoy told MTV News that the band had already recorded a bulk of the group’s follow-up album to their ‘05 sophomore set, Papercut Chronicles. Fans can expect to start hearing new music from the group later this year.

“We’re about 30 to 35 demos deep now. We had a really awesome session right before this tour started, and we got a lot done. We’re definitely in the stages now where we’re definitely picking the cream of the crop. … The songs are starting to take shape and come together,” he said. “We just wrapped a song with Adam Levine called ‘Stereo Hearts’ that came out amazing, so you guys might be hearing that song a lot sooner than you’d think. It’s definitely that time, regardless of how far or how much longer the Lazarus cycle continues to bring out the sexy MILFs, we’re definitely looking to get this record out this year.”

“In a perfect world, after this tour is over, I have a couple commitments to take care of, but after that, I’m jumping right into the studio,” he said. “So once again, in a perfect world, we’re going to have this record out before summer.”
