PAIN, the Swedish metal band led by multi-instrumentalist and producer Peter Tägtgren, will release its new album, "Coming Home", on September 9 through Nuclear Blast. The cover artwork for the follow-up to 2011's "You Only Live Twice" was created by Stefan Heilemann and can be seen below.
Tägtgren, who last year collaborated with vocalist Till Lindemann of German industrial metallers RAMMSTEIN on the debut album from their LINDEMANN project, commented: "I was brainstorming about the cover with Heile again... And we got the result that I really needed. I rented a spacesuit and spinned away thereafter.
"Musically, the album is a development of where PAIN and LINDEMANN ended at — more experimental than what I've ever done before. Acoustic guitars and a helping hand again from Clemens of CARACH ANGREN with the orchestra arrangements, and some guest vocals. And Sebastian Tägtgren did a great job on the drums."
PAIN's seventh album, "You Only Live Twice", was released in June 2011 via Nuclear Blast Records.
