The follow-up to the acclaimed ‘West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum’, which sold nearly a million copies, ‘Velociraptor!’ was recorded in Leicester and mixed in San Francisco. Written and produced by Sergio Pizzorno, ‘Velociraptor!’ is a major leap forward from one of Britain’s biggest bands.
“’West Ryder’ was our ‘Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake’. Everything about it was perfect,” says Pizzorno. “But we’ve done that now and it’s time to move on. We’ve upped the stakes.” Inspiration for the new album arrived late one night at Pizzorno’s new home, deep in the Leicestershire countryside. “I’ve got this old jukebox and one night I was up until six am and it kept spitting out these great tunes, anything from Elvis to the Chemical Brothers,” he explains.
“I was like, wow, imagine if you had an album like that, which you could put on at any time of the day or night and it would just throw out one great tune after another. I knew it was massively ambitious, but if we could do it the results could be incredible.”
