Obituary took to KickStarter to raise a modest $10,000 for a new record, of which they raised over $60,000 because they're Obituary and people care. Now the band have announced they're done writing the new record and plan editing the material to be ready for studio time hopefully sometime soon!
Obituary posted on their Facebook over the weekend to announced that they've both completed their recent mini-tour and all the material for their upcoming record due out sometime in 2014:
So we made it home alive and in one piece from the EastCoast Run. Thank you EVERYBODY that came out to see us! We had a Blast with you guys Jamming ALL the Old Classic Songs. Always a good time with those….
Now it's time to get back to Business and keep working on the New Album. We have all the songs written, now we will take our time, trim the fat and focus on making these bass boys as Bad-Ass as possible. We can't be more excited how they are turning out and are SO READY to start recording them..!! You guys will be so proud of Us when you hear it. The Old Florida RedNecks pulled one "out the bag" and created a Sick Record!
Fast, Slow, Mid-Tempo Groove, Gut-Wrenching and Heavy as All Get Out!! Can't wait for you to Hear It!
What's harder to pull off, A Super F*ckin Heavy Song that is Fast or Slow?
Curious what you guys think…
Good that they're taking the time to edit down the songs and really put out the best record they possibly can, especially considering these are the dudes who did Slowly We Rot. So they've certainly got the penchant to kill it on a studio record. Here's to hoping 2014 is the year Obituary came back and destroyed us all!
