Recording of the new Deniz Tek album, working title "Instrumentals", has been completed in the USA. On board is Deniz's usual studio band, with Bob Brown on bass and Ric Parnell on drums. The guitar interplay with Keith Streng (of the Fleshtones) worked so well on tour that Keith was invited to attend and played on these recording sessions as well. Mixing is scheduled with Andy "Mort" Bradley in Houston, Texas in February. Vinyl and CD release on Career Records in the USA is expected in 2018.
