Swedish metallers ASTRAL DOORS have issued the following update on their current activities:
"Since we got home from the tour with GRAVE DIGGER, we've been working with new songs for our next album, 'Astralism', scheduled to be released early next year.
"You will have a pre-taste of it this fall, since the song 'Raiders of the Ark' from the album also will appear on a mini album, to be released in September. The album also contains three songs never released in Europe or USA, a 'leftover song' from the 'Evil is Forever' days, as well as a video clip. We hope you'll check it out, 'cause it will blow you away!
"We're going to take a break from the songwriting in July to do some festivals in Sweden and a show with DORO in Germany!
"In August, it's 'back to the bunker-time.' We shall lock ourselves inside the Big Turn Studio [Borlange, Sweden] and we won't come out 'till we have an album stronger than our previous two!"
ASTRAL DOORS' sophomore album, "Evil is Forever", was released earlier this year via Locomotive Music.
