NEW MATERIAL ABOUNDS

2014 has proved to be a fertile breeding ground for new material so far. The group have already started recording sessions for what will be the eighth studio album which is as yet untitled. Recording once again with the masterful Lord Alan Smythe of Sheffield (Cursed, 2011) at the controls, The Six are slowly piecing together the fragments of upwards of twenty new cuts. The cruel and claustrophobic conditions in which the band work has given rise to a working title of ‘Fritzl-style’ though a recent strenuous rehearsal has led to the batch of songs now being entitled ‘Sucking and Chucking’. The release date for this slew of work is not set as the band are still writing new things but all will become clear as the year drags on.
