Jethro Tull, the band notoriously famous for beating Metallica at the Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance Vocal or Instrumental with a flute, will soon be releasing an all new album.
You know I can't begin to express how happy this makes me (that they beat Metallica and that they're making a new album).
So, forty years after the original release of Thick As a Brick, a satirical poke at concept albums, Jethro Tull has announced the release of sequel album, Thick as a Brick 2. It is reported that the album will be about, "what might have befallen the child poet Geral Bostock in later life," and that it will be "a full length Progressive Rock "concept" album worthy of its predecessor."
The album will be released on April 2, 2012.
