Kvelertak had a bit of a lineup shakeup in July 2018 when vocalist Erlend Hjelvik left the band. He's since been replaced by Ivar Nikolaisen, who has done backup vocals on some of Kvelertak's music in the past, and now he's working on his first new record with the band.
According to guitarist Vidar Landa in an interview with Overdrive, Kvelertak is working on a new album and will be "entering into the rehearsal studio soon so we can all start working on the ideas."
"Right now, it's kind of hard to explain the new material, but we are working on the new album and have written a lot of stuff so far. The way it looks now, I guess we are working with things that we felt worked really well for us on Nattesferd and stuff that really clicked with us on the first two albums. For us, Nattesferd is not really that different to what Kvelertak is about, and I'm sure the next album is going to solidify our sound if anything else."
No word on if the band is attempting to release the record in 2019 or not.
