In a recent interview with Crestfallen – Smashing Pumpkins bassist Nicole Fiorentino discusses her band’s (The Cold & Lovely’s) newest & upcoming EP. Here are some highlights from the interview:

On the number of tracks considered for the EP:

“We didn’t really consider it much. it just sort of happened. I had some time off from Pumpkins, so we thought we’d take advantage by getting into the studio while I was around. the original plan was to do another full length but once we got in there and recorded 5 quality songs we just decided to make an e.p. instead of waiting until the next time i was available to record 5 more for a full length. at this point there are enough songs to make a full length, just not enough time together as a band to actually record it! so we figured we’d just do an e.p. for now and record the rest of them whenever we get a chance. I think with the last record we developed a good following and we just want to keep the ball rolling and make our music available asap to people.”

On when we can expect the EP to be made for sale:

“I am off into Pumpkinland in about a week, so Meg is taking this thing on by herself again. it’s her top priority so we are guessing somewhere a long the lines of late spring. we’d like to get it out as soon as we can because we are really proud of the songs and want so badly to share them with everyone!”
