MTV News reports that the band has written and finished pre-production on its seventh studio album. If there's an upside to Poison bassist Bobby Dall's recent emergency back surgery, it's that the hair metal kings have had time off the road to write their next album.
Drummer Rikki Rockett said Sunday at the My VH1 Music Awardsthat the band has written and finished pre-production on its seventh studio album and plans to enter a Los Angeles studio next week. "The songs are awesome," Rockett said. "I really, really love these songs. It's fuel-injected hard rock Poison stuff. I think people really need it. And I really need it. A lot of times you listen to all your new songs right back and there's always something wrong with them. I love everything on these." One of the new tracks, "I Want to Go Home," is a tongue-in-cheek number about being somewhere you don't want to be, Rockett said.
Poison will follow up the album with a summer headlining tour, the drummer said. The "Nothin' But a Good Time" rockers' last tour, the Glam Slam Metal Jam, ended abruptly in early August when Dall had emergency surgery to replace several discs in his spine.
The group's most recent album, 2000's Power to the People, featured five new tracks, along with eight live recordings, including a rendition of the 1988 #1 hit "Every Rose Has Its Thorn."
Flamboyant guitarist C.C. DeVille, who has left Poison and returned twice in the past, will record with the band on the new album.
