Portishead to Release New Material

Published: 2006-01-05
After nearly eight years, Portishead are recording a new album. The band has almost finished recording a new album according to group member Geoff Barrow. He tells BBC 6 Music that they are doing another record. "We've never actually broken up, or parted or whatever. Even though we haven't played for years, we still see each other and writeˇwe just haven't released a record in a really long time."

The band will be playing Bristol Academy on February 19 to raise money for Oxfam's tsunami appeal. The band will not be playing any new material at the show, but will feature singer Beth Gibbons performing acoustic.
