EXTREME guitarist Nuno Bettencourt has said that the band is very close to signing a record deal for the release of their latest album.
Bettencourt addressed the status of EXTREME’s new LP, which has been completed for some time now, while marking the 30th anniversary of the band’s hit song “More Than Words” reaching the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
On Wednesday (June 9), Nuno wrote on his Facebook page: “Billboard Charts On this day June 8, 1991. 30 years ago I got a call the night before from Billboard that ‘More Than Words’ would hit the top of the charts knocking off Mariah at #1. It’s been an incredible journey since and we’re still kickin it.
“With incredible meetings with record labels over the last few months to find a home for the new and upcoming EXTREME album, it makes it a great anniversary year to have a new release to share with the planet and especially our patient and non patient fans.
“Album done and and an almost inked deal… means an upcoming tour.
so pumped for all of it.”
A live package celebrating EXTREME’s very successful “Pornograffitti” album was made available in October 2016. Titled “Pornograffitti Live 25 / Metal Meltdown”, the album included a DVD, Blu-ray and audio CD recorded at the band’s show at the Las Vegas Hard Rock Casino on May 30, 2015, where they performed the album in full.
