Nuno Bettencourt Confirms Finishing New Extreme Album

Jason Bullinger for Alternative Revolt

Nuno Bettencourt has confirmed that the band is putting the finishing touches on its first new Extreme album since 2008’s “Saudades De Rock”.

“I’m really pumped and excited,” he told SiriusXM’s “Trunk Nation” on Monday (November 26). “We have chosen, I think, our final songs that we have; we had about 24, 25 to choose from. I know we’ve taken too long — it’s pretty embarrassing that we’ve taken this long — but we tapped on to something that’s a little bit of a harder version for Extreme, a little bit heavier, and I can’t wait to share it with everyone. So we’re wrapping up vocals, Pat’s [Badger, bass] still got some stuff to do, and I’m thinking — safely, I think we’re thinking spring, Extreme will have a new album; maybe March, April. So I’m really pumped about that.”
