A post on the I LIKE TRAINS website states that "work is continuing on the next album. The writing is beginning to take shape, and we hope to start some recording shortly after we return from our European jaunt."
In other news, the band have a song in The Wrestler. Check the trailer up top.
BONUS! Here's their beautiful, and deeply sad Terra Nova video, beloved of a certain Svenhunter. Enjoy.
