Chuckles and Mr. Squeezy (2010–present)
Dredg had suggested on their Twitter account that they began recording their fifth album on June 23, 2010.
On August 17, 2010, Dredg announced via their official website that they have begun the process of recording a new album. Unlike the long gaps between their last two efforts, the band is expecting an early 2011 release. The announcement was posted in the news section and reads as follows: "Yesterday, we began working on our fifth record with musician/producer Dan the Automator. We will be writing and recording it in San Francisco for the next month and a half and are hoping for an early 2011 release. Stay tuned as there will be more updates and studio footage in the coming months."
On February 18, 2011, Dredg announced via Twitter that their fifth studio album, Chuckles and Mr. Squeezy, will be released on May 3, 2011 in the United States and April 29 everywhere else.
