Sweden's Regain Records has issued the following press release:

"Regain Records has finally decided how to go further with the GORGOROTH matter. Regain Records will continue the co-operation with the band's original member Infernus with a new line-up. This new line-up will be announced by Infernus through the new official website Regain Records recognizes Infernus as the rightful owner of the bands name, logo and trademark, and is prepared to take any legal steps necessary to prevent any third part from exploiting it, artistically and commercially."

The Gaahl-fronted version of GORGOROTH recently completed a European tour that included Gaahl on vocals, King ov Hell on bass, Nick Barker (ex-DIMMU BORGIR, CRADLE OF FILTH) on drums, and Teloch (NIDINGR, UMORAL, 1349) and Sykelig on guitars.

René Ackermann of Contraband Candy conducted an interview with King Ov Hell (real name: Tom Cato Visnes) and Gaahl (real name: Kristian Eivind Espedal) during the UK leg of the tour. Topics include new drummers, the band's upcoming live album, their legendary Polish gig in Krakow and talks of staging another blasphemous gig in the future. Watch the 10-minute chat below.
