Nothing More frontman Jonny Hawkins says the band have 17 songs written for their upcoming sixth album.

While no release date has yet been set for the follow-up to the Texas band’s 2013’s self-titled effort, Hawkins is confident in the quality of the material they have put together.

Hawkins tells TeamRock: “We’re about six to eight months deep into it,” he says. “We have 17 full tracks, so we’re at that stage where we have to start cutting one or two, or we just go for it and put 17 out there.

“Our last record had 17 tracks, but it did quite well so we might just do it again. We feel really confident about it.”

Hawkins reveals that one of the tracks was inspired by people he met while dealing with the grief of losing his mother to cancer.

He says: “I went to grief counselling with my dad after my mom died of cancer. I didn’t think I needed it for myself, I was just going to support him. But some of the people I met there inspired one of the songs on the album.”

The album can be pre-ordered now via PledgeMusic. Nothing More are on the road in North America, with the tour wrapping up on October 21.
