Had the lusciously incendiary Lust Lust Lust been the Raveonettes’ only musical output in 2008, fans and critics alike would still consider the year a success for Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo. Never content to keep quiet and enjoy time between tours, however, the Raves’ released four digital EPs, including the recent Wishing You A Rave Christmas. Sune Rose stated on the official Raveonettes MySpace page this week that he is even planning on writing the new album in January.
