For the first time in nearly 30 years, Thin Lizzy will release new music. Guitarist Scott Gorham says the group is working on new songs with an eye on a new album, the first without founder and original vocalist Phil Lynott, who died in 1986.

Fans at the band’s Dec. 13 show in Dublin will be the first to hear the new material, Gorham tells Guitarist Damon Johnson added that the band is hopeful the new album will be ready to release early in 2013.

“Hopefully we are going to cook up a couple of songs from the new album for the show. I think that would actually be a good thing to do. I hope I’m not talking too soon,” he said.

Gorham says he and Johnson will begin recording with producer Kevin Shirley next month in Los Angeles. The current lineup also includes Brian Downey, Darren Wharton, vocalist Ricky Warwick and Marco Mendoza.

“We are all excited about the new record but especially Ricky and Damon, they just can’t wait to start recording!” Gorham says. “You have got six guys there that are chomping at the bit that can’t wait to get this thing going.”

Last month Gorham revealed that he’s working on a book about the band’s early years. ‘The Boys Are Back in Town’ will be released by Omnibus Press on Nov. 16.
