Boston have been spending the summer on the road across North America playing music from their storied career.
Once again, the rockers are touring without a new release, but that’s nothing new as it’s been a decade since Boston’s last album, 2002’s “Corporate America.”
Boston leader Tom Scholz is notorious for his detailed approach to making records, which - among other things – has limited the group’s output to just 5 albums in 36 years.
Ahead of the band’s show in Milwaukee on Friday, OnMilwaukee hooked up with singer Tommy DeCarlo to check in on the status of Boston’s latest work-in-progress.
"Unfortunately I don't have a time frame on that (the new album)," he said. "The last entry that Tom had on the band's website was that it was approximately 85 percent complete."
But he promises it will be worth the wait.
"Tom's quite a perfectionist when it comes to his sound and his music and it's not always something that gets done in a timely fashion – but when it gets done, it's fantastic,” explains the singer. “I'm with all the fans – I'm excited to hear it myself. Let's keep our fingers crossed."
DeCarlo estimates that after the current tour, Scholz will be able to focus more intensely on completing the album.
