It’s already known that recording for their next album began at the end of last year.
According to NME, O'Malley spoke to motorcycle website For The Ride back in September, with the article stating that "Nick found time for the track day before recording began on the eagerly anticipated sixth album, started at a secret location in September. The new album will be out next year because 'if it isn't, we've got problems'."
