Chvrches Will Need Two Years to Work on Sophomore Set

Chvrches exploded onto the scene with their debut album The Bones of What You Believe. They are taking their sweet ass time as they work on the follow up.
Keyboardist Iain Cook told Classic Pop, "You often see bands with a successful debut who get cocky, so they hash out something substandard and nobody gives a shit again. So we're not over-confident, but pressure can work against you too. We're not going to put out anything we aren't happy with. That could take four months, it could take two years."
Two years is a long time. It flies in the face of the notion of striking while the iron is hot since music fans can be so finicky and have short-term memories. It's about maintaining artistic integrity.
Cook confessed that the band has not finished any new songs...yet, saying, "It's too early to talk about new songs, because nothing is finished. We do most of our work in the studio together – it's fine for one person to come up with something, but it's not a Chvrches song until it's been bounced back and forth between the three of us. There aren't any lyrics, but there are little bits where we're thinking 'I can see how that could really work.'"
Okay, so he just gave us a look into the band's processes. And you can't rush a masterwork. Hey, Chvrches, take your time! Make a GREAT fucking album.
Are you stoked about new Chvrches?
