Tricky Stewart - Semi Precious Weapons to release third album

Semi Precious Weapons have reassured fans their third album 'Aviation' will be released this year.

The Los Angeles rock band experienced ''record label drama'' but are now managed by RedZone Records, run by famous producer Tricky Stewart, who is known for his work with Beyonce, Rihanna and Frank Ocean.

Frontman Justin Tranter told BANG Showbiz: ''Sadly the album was pushed back because of stereotypical label bulls**t. The label drama is over and the album finally comes out at the end of April.''

The record 'Aviation' is the follow-up to the band's second album 'You Love You', which came out in 2010, and is hoped to be released in the UK in May following the US date.

Justin, 33, joked: ''The fans are angry, I get tweets every day, they're gonna f***ing kill me if I don't put something out.''

The glamorous rock band - also made up of Dan Crean, Stevy Pyne and Cole Whittle - say their goal for the new record was to simply write the best songs they could and they plan to tour after its release with a number of US and UK gigs.

Justin continued: ''The UK fans are great, they're so passionate, and they actually love the music and not just the aesthetic.

''We're hoping to get back this summer, or maybe even late spring. ''We have had such great experiences with the UK. It was a pretty surreal moment when Kate Moss came to one of our gigs. She couldn't have been sweeter, she loves the band and looked so gorgeous, I wanted to poke my eyes out.''

Semi Precious Weapons are also famous for being pals with Lady Gaga, who was their opening act before she become one of the world's biggest stars.

Justin added: ''Gaga is the hardest working woman on the planet. Even with how crazy her life is we still check in with each other a couple of times a month.

''If you go out in public with Gaga, you have a great f**king time but you can't really talk. When we do hang out now, it's in private, where we can enjoy each other's company.''

The new album from Semi Precious Weapons, 'Aviation', will be released on April 8 in the US.
