The band talk new album and offer up a taster

In a brand new interview with Ian Astbury revealed that the band's brand new album, Choice Of Weapon, is amongst the best things they have ever done.

"It's cohesive. It's very confident, and the statements are very bold. Some may feel there's a certain arrogance to it, but I think there's a healthy confidence to this record. We knew it wasn't going to be superficial. The gloves were coming off. We were going to show it as raw and as intimate as we could."

"I think it's in some ways going to polarize our audience," Astbury predicts. "We certainly didn't sidestep the times that we live in. It deals with our individual experiences and what's going on around us in the world. Our intention was to make a record that was fresh. It's of its time, and we captured exactly where we're at right now, in the early part of the 21st century. I'm watching so many artists just terrified to make a statement of any kind. They're afraid they're going to get ripped apart in the blogosphere or torn apart by some critic who's basically just out of diapers. So many (artists) seem to be scared to come out and say what they feel. A lot of rock 'n' roll music has lost its teeth."

The album is released on 21 May.
