Glasvegas have been talking about releasing an album of Christmas songs a matter of weeks after their debut album hits the shelves.
The Scots rockers are being tipped for success after winning the prestigious Philip Hall Radar Award at the NME awards earlier this year.
Their self titled debut is due for release on 8 September.
Singer James Allen told Newsbeat: "We're off to Transylvania and we'll hire a cathedral to record it in."
Anyone who has heard any of the band's powerful, epic sounding records like the forthcoming single Daddy's Gone will be surprised at the thought of a festive record.
But Allen insisted: "It's not going to be covers or anything. It's some songs that I think reflect that time of year, the moods that reflect that time of year."
Glasvegas' guitarist and James' cousin Rab Allen told BBC 6 Music that he hopes they will release one of the songs, Cruel Moon, as a single.
He said: "I think it's the best song James has ever written."

Glasvegas are heading out on a UK tour in September and travel to the US to support Echo And The Bunnymen before the end of the year.
James Allen admits they haven't given themselves much of a chance to take a breather.
He said: "I was talking to Ian Brown and he said, 'I heard you're releasing a Christmas record two months after your debut comes out'.
"And I was like 'Yeah, that's right', and he said 'That's f*****g mental.'"
