Stereophonics are set to release two new albums within the next year. The first record, still untitled, will be released in October and the next sometime in 2013. Singer Kelly Jones told The Daily Star, "We've had time to just go into our own studio and mess about, and it’s resulted in a bigger sounding style, very grand and filmic."

Taking to Twitter, United Nations, the band featuring member of Converge, Geoff Rickley of Thursday and Daryl Palumbo of Glassjaw / Head Automatica, confirmed they are releasing a new album. The band released their debut in 2008.
