Insomnium just released their new EP Argent Moon in September, and is already working on a brand new full-length. In an interview with The MetalSucks Podcast, guitarist Jani Liimatainen said the band is making use of their downtime by writing new music.
"I can let you in on a little secret. We have already started working on the new album. There's no point in sitting on our hands here, we have to do something, and since we can't know what's happening with live shows, let's just work on a new album, new songs.
"Actually that's the reason even this interview was rescheduled because there was a double booking which we didn't notice. Last week we had a band meeting and also rehearsed for three days. Since this was the first time we met all together in over a year because Ville [Friman, guitarist] lives in the U.K. And also the U.K.-Finland situation has been iffy so traveling has not been possible."
Insomnium recently cancelled their upcoming tour for "due to personal reasons" and will "take a break for a couple of months to re-group."
