DEMILICH Working On First New Material Since 1993

"You won't be getting a full-length, but it's not going to be an EP, either."

Finnish avant-garde death metal band Demilich have been reunited ever since 2014, appearing at festivals and playing shows here and there. Now for the first time since their 1993 landmark album (and only non-demo release) Nespithe, they're working on new material. The band just issued a pretty lengthy update and if you're only looking for the new material bit, here's what's happening.

Demilich has 2.1 new songs structurally done. We have to come up with lyrics, solos and some little things, but those are basically ready. Next, we will create 1.9 songs more, and then we're ready to record them all. So, you won't be getting a full-length, but it's not going to be an EP, either. Neither overly long songs filling the album length. Something possibly better. We'll tell you more when it's time, hopefully this year!

Demilich is currently founding vocalist and guitarist Antti Boman and drummer Mikko Virnes from 1990, guitarist Aki Hytönen who joined in 1991, and bassist Jarkko Luomajoki who joined in 2014.

A note to everyone asking for extra dates for the tours: Unfortunately this is all we had time for. Antti could tour months, and would love to, but he just can't get other guys to do more than this due to their responsibilities at home and work. So, no extra dates coming. We promise we will do our everything to get us tour the whole Northern America before we put Demilich to sleep.

––– EURO TOUR? OTHER SHOWS? –––

We are currently trying to arrange a two week tour in Europe in late autumn. More about that when things start clearing up. Also, we have some other shows already booked, but we cannot talk about them, yet. You'll hear about it when it's time, so don't worry.

––– THE NESPITHE SHIRT COMPETITION AND OTHER MERCHANDISE –––

We had the Nespithe shirt competition running many years ago, but nothing happened after that. I already know the winner, and we're currently working on the designs, so please give us a short while more! There will also be a huge amount of new designs and products coming! The plan is to reveal all of this before Mexico, or then quickly after that.
