JOEY ALLEN: ‘Nothing’s Going On Right Now’ When It Comes To Making New WARRANT Music

In a new interview with the “Rimshots With Sean” podcast, WARRANT guitarist Joey Allen spoke about whether there has been any talk of a follow-up to 2017’s “Louder Harder Faster” album. He said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “New record? I don’t know. The last one was fun to make, and [producer] Jeff Pilson was fun to work with. And the one before that [2011’s ‘Rockaholic’] with [producer] Keith Olsen — God rest his soul — was great and fun to do.

“It’s such an undertaking for us, and the return on making a record is [miniscule],” he explained. “You know what I mean? And not everything’s about money. It’s, like, can we play it live? Well, you can, but people are just gonna sit there and look at you, like, ‘Where’s ‘Cherry Pie’? Where’s ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin’? Where’s ‘Down Boys’? Where are those hits I wanted to hear?’ And so you can’t go out and play three or four or five new tunes, which would be — for me, thumbs up. I would dig to do that. But we have a responsibility to play the songs that people really wanna hear too. So it’s a double-edged sword. And that’s what I mean when I [say], what’s in it for us? It’s not financially. The thing in it for us is to play new music, to create new music, to grow. Let’s not be a nostalgia act. So I don’t know if it’ll be a new record or if it’ll be a song at a time or whatever — I’m sure sooner than later something [will] happen — but nothing’s going on right now.”

Last December, WARRANT guitarist Erik Turner told Robert Miguel of Uvalde Radio Rocks that he and his bandmates were “not sure” what they were going to do as far as new music was concerned. “It’s just been a little bit — there’s just been some stuff going on where we haven’t really been doing any new music,” he revealed. “We have some riffs [being thrown] around. We have some half-finished songs going on. Due to some personal stuff going on, we’re just kind of on hold as far as the new record goes. Nothing horrible, but just band stuff.”

In March 2023, Allen told Mankato, Minnesota’s “The Five Count” radio show that he and his WARRANT bandmates were “actually writing right now for a record. So people are sending riffs around. You can do it on the Internet nowadays,” he explained. “We just have a cloud-based files system where we just upload ideas. And somebody will take an idea, a music idea, and put some lyrics to it, and we’ll start to craft our songs. So maybe by this fall we’ll dig into the studio again and [record] the follow-up to ‘Louder Harder Faster’, which came out, I think, six years ago this year. The recording process takes about four or five weeks, so maybe early next year we’ll have something new out for everybody to listen to and back on the road we will go to support that.”

Three years ago, WARRANT singer Robert Mason told the “Thunder Underground” podcast that there wasn’t “a defined schedule” for the group’s next studio album, but he added that he and his bandmates are “always writing.”

In 2020, Turner told the “Talking Metal” podcast that WARRANT was “throwing some ideas around” for a new LP. He said: “I’ve been sending Robert some riffs, and Robert‘s been working on songs. I’ve got a song going with Jerry [Dixon, bass]. So it’s a slow, long process for us, but the seed of a new record has been started. Now, that doesn’t mean the seed will grow into a record. We’ve got a long way to go. We don’t have one finished song. We’ve got a couple of things cooking, and we’re actually sending ideas around back and forth to each other.”

“Louder Harder Faster” was released in May 2017. The disc was recorded with Pilson — a veteran bassist who has played with DIO, FOREIGNER, DOKKEN and T&N, among others — and was mixed by Pat Regan, except for the song “I Think I’ll Just Stay Here And Drink”, which was mixed by Chris “The Wizard” Collier (FLOTSAM AND JETSAM, PRONG, LAST IN LINE).

Mason replaced original WARRANT frontman Jani Lane in 2008 and has brought a degree of stability to the band after Lane‘s unceremonious departure and subsequent 2011 death.

WARRANT is rounded out by original drummer Steven Sweet.
