Iron City Rocks - Phil Collen Interview Quote

"We're talking about the next album and we were talking about maybe a song or an EP. But in the meantime if we do release an EP, we're gonna be working on a new album. So we're gonna do it in dribs and drabs. That's the way to do it really because we wanna tour, we wanna keep because everything's so disposable these days we just wanna keep our foot in there and keep a live presence. But I think the way round that is to do songs here and there and I love the way The Beatles, The Stones - they used to write a song, record it and release it and not worry about waiting for a full length album. I like that approach."
