The Avalanches’ second album, the follow-up to the band’s 2001 debut ‘Since I Left You’, has had its release date put back, apparently because it wasn’t up to scratch. The group’s label Modular announced in a recent mail-out: “We finally took receipt of the long-awaited follow up to the smashing ‘Since I Left You’ the other week. We listened to it over and over, but to be honest, the whole thing sounded kinda rushed. Rather than push out a half-arsed, less than thought out sophomore album, we’ve sent them back to the studio to spend a little more time on it. Fingers crossed they get it right this time.”
Rushed? They’ve had five years.
