King's X haven't released an album since 2008's XV, but drummer Jerry Gaskill recently confirmed to 'The Drum Shuffle' podcast that they are preparing to enter the studio to begin working on their new album, which could be released sometime next year.

Gaskill stated: "We are definitely talking about it, and we are actually making plans. And so, most likely, there will be a new record, possibly even next year."

It will happen when it happens, but… it's gonna happen, and I think soon."
