Stereophonics record news and US dates

Stereophonics have released almost every piece of information possible for their forthcoming album JEEP (Just Enough Education To Perform). The album is scheduled to be released April 9 on the V2, and according to singer Kelly Jones has "more flavors" than the previous gems. JEEP is the band's third album following Performance and Cocktails and Word Gets Around.

Kelly Jones rapped with Kerrang! Magazine recently and said this about JEEP, "There's extra vocalists, gospel
singers, some slide guitars, a lot of
authentic pianos and Wurlitzers - it's
not bigger, there's just a load more
flavors on it. It's more dynamic as
well, a free- sounding record that
we can't wait to play live."
