||José Travieso has confirmed that there will be a new album for his one-man thrash metal band Cautiva. The album is planned to be released sometime this year.
He posted the following on his official website: "So, during the last year, I was more and more centered in my music, but not feeling the pleasure of the Cautiva years. My perfectionism and hard working with the music carried me to this situation and I felt more and more I had to stop all that mentality and self-pressure. I decided to stop when The Illusionist was released, September of this year (well, 2011). I decided to stop, not to spend a minute in music for a few of weeks (I did it) and then just to play and make music for pleasure. Does it mean that I'm not going to release any music more? Not at all! Frankly speaking, I thought about it, but I love anyway making music and it was obvious the problem was the strong rhythm of creation, not making music itself. Just I must dose it!"
"My strongest ambition now? Cautiva. Yes, I would like to record new music for the project and to release it in 2012, but there is actually a long previous way. First of all, I'm practicing again with the guitar and developing my abilities and so on. And during the next one or two months I want to work again in the production of all the instruments and mix, from zero. If everything is going well, I'll be writing some new song for March... This is everything for now."
