Swedish metallers SOILWORK are currently in the studio with producer Jens Bogren (OPETH, AMON AMARTH, BLOODBATH) recording the follow-up to their 2010 release, "The Panic Broadcast". The Soilworkers have been toiling away and burning many a midnight oil to bring us not just one CD of amazing music, but two! That's right, SOILWORK's upcoming album, "The Living Infinite", will be a double album!
Commented SOILWORK vocalist Björn "Speed" Strid: "So here's the scoop. Me and the boys have been waiting to share this for quite some time now: 'The Living Infinite' will be a double album! A REAL double album, in the true sense of the word, which means no fillers and no leftovers.
"I've been wanting to do this for a while and I proposed the idea to the rest of the guys in the band during our festival tour last summer. Everybody liked the title 'The Living Infinite' and also the idea of working towards the goal of releasing a double album. David Andersson was already playing with us last summer, so he has also been a part of this goal from the start.
"I feel very excited and proud that we've managed to find the inspiration and dedication it takes to create somewhat of a conceptual double album, especially since it's dealing with a lot of existential questions.
"We are currently hard at work in the studio, putting this beast on tape. Things are sounding incredibly good so far.
"So excited about this and can't wait to share the awesomeness with you all!"
"The Living Infinite" will mark the recording debut of SOILWORK's longtime touring guitarist David Andersson (NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA).
SOILWORK's latest album, "The Panic Broadcast", was released in Europe on July 2, 2010 and in North America on July 13, 2010 via Nuclear Blast Records.
"The Panic Broadcast" was SOILWORK's studio debut with axeman Sylvain Coudret, who joined in 2008.
