The road to the new Eyehategod album has been a hard one for the band. Vocalist Mike Williams needed and received a new liver in 2016, longtime guitarist Brian Patton left the band, other guitarist Jimmy Bower had some sort of medical issue, and drummer Aaron Hill got stabbed before a show in Mexico.
Despite all this, Eyehategod managed to write and record a new music that only needs Williams' vocals.
In an interview with The Void With Christina, Williams said the record was supposed to be finished earlier this year but got held up due to touring.
“It’s recorded. I just have to do vocals on it. We’ve been on tour so much. I was supposed to do it a few months ago, but something happened and things fell apart with that… we were leaving for tour immediately… So, I’m going to try to get it done. We’re taking a few months off after this thing; after Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, South Korea. But yeah, as soon as all that’s done, I’m going to take some time off, and then there’s a studio… I know where I’m going to go and do it.”
No word on if Eyehategod ended up re-recording the material the laid to tape with Patton. Williams said in July 2018 "I think we're gonna re-record it. 'Cause now we're a four-piece band," but I guess we'll see when the record is announced.
