Behemoth is the latest big-name band to announce that unless touring is a possibility, they're not releasing their new album. Behemoth vocalist and guitarist Adam "Nergal" Darski recently said in an interview with Summa Inferno that the band will push the new album back if they can't tour, but they'll wait and see what happens.
"Things are happening, let's put it that way," he said. "We're working hard, but we're in no rush, because, for now, there's really no light [at the end of] the tunnel yet. And I don't wanna spoil anything, but I honestly don't think any touring is happening this year. I wish it would, but it's not. That's my guess. I hope I'm wrong.
"But if I'm right, expect new music in '22. Maybe Me and That Man will be released later this year, which would make sense, and it's gonna be followed by the next Behemoth album. But we've got some aces up our sleeves. And even if there's no new music, we're celebrating three decades — 30 years — anniversary with Behemoth, and, obviously, we'll celebrating that with some awesome stuff. So, yeah, stay tuned."
