Boston mastermind Tom Scholz has never been known for his quick turnaround on new albums. Though a new album is in the works from the band, recently appointed lead singer Tommy DeCarlo has wisely suggested fans may not want to hold their breath while waiting for it.

As he told Classic Rock Magazine, “Unfortunately I don’t have a time frame on that… Tom’s quite a perfectionist when it comes to his sound and his music. It’s not always done in a timely fashion.” Scholz had previously said the album is “85 percent complete.” The proposed new album would be only their sixth in a 36-year career. The previous Boston album, ‘Corporate America,’ dates back to 2002.

DeCarlo took on lead vocal duties last year following the departure of Michael Sweet of Stryper, who had been fronting the band since the suicide of original singer Brad Delp in 2007. He promises the new album will be worth the weight. “When it gets done,” he said, “it’s fantastic. I’m with all the fans, I’m excited to hear it myself. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.”
