NAPALM DEATH Planning Split, Cover Songs & "Multi-Faceted Rasper" Of A New Album
Napalm Death has announced a string of European and Russian tour dates for a good chunk of the rest of the year. In a statement about the dates, Napalm Death also addresses their new album. They say it's just about done and will also come alongside some cover songs and a split with a currently "very-definitely-not-grindcore" unknown artist.
The stinky van is calling again, and this summer looks to me like we’re reaching more parts of Europe than we have done in quite a few summers. Macedonia in July looks to be one that sticks out, as I recall that our last gig there was in the midst of the miserable Balkans war – it was that long ago. On another note, I know people are probably wondering about the next album.
It is coming, we promise. Unforeseen circumstances and the kind of recurring touring schedule you see in front of your eyes have conspired to string it out quite a bit. It’s gonna be a multi-faceted rasper though, I think. Some nice ‘n’ quirky cover songs too. All will be revealed soon – just getting on with artwork and last couple of lyrics and all the usual window dressing.
Alongside that, if it comes off, a nifty associated split release with a very-definitely-not-grindcore band is in the planning, which will neatly skip around convention and stereotype. And why not. Cheers all.
