John Lydon has named the new Public Image album, ‘This Is Pil’.
In the grand tradition of short abrupt ritles it’s the perfect monicker for the band’s first album since 1992 ‘That What Is Not’
“It is probably going to be called This is PiL basically because it is, it is all the work, effort and energy we put into this record,” Lydon told BBC 6 Music.
The projected release date for the 12-track album is early spring 2012, and a subsequent UK and European tour is also being planned.
Next year should also see the fruition of the new project featuring Jah Wobble and Keith Levine.
