Elastica haven’t released an album since 2000’s The Menace.
Good news for Elastica fans – it looks like the band are back in the studio after 20 years.
Abbey Road Studios mastering engineer Sean Magee tweeted on Friday (January 20) that he “cut a record for Elastica today,” adding that the group “hadn’t seen each other for 20yrs. It’s great to be there when moments like that happen.”

It’s not clear yet whether this means new music is on the way, but we’re excited nonetheless.
Former lead singer Justine Frischmann, who now works as an artist in San Francisco, is noticeably absent from the photos, however in the comments underneath one of the pictures, the band wrote: “Justine’s involved in what’s happening too, she’s just not in the picture though. Be patient a bit more till we break the official news, k?” x
Frischmann told the Guardian last year that “doesn’t really have any desire to make music.”
The Britpop heroes released their acclaimed self-titled debut No.1 album in 1995, which was followed by The Menace in 2000. After the release of final single ‘The Bitch Don’t Work’ in 2001, the band announced their break-up. Remind yourself of ‘Waking Up’ below.
