It's been three years since we got a new The Black Dahlia Murder record, which is the longest span between records for the band to date. Vocalist Trevor Strnad tells Pure Grain Audio that the wait will soon be over and a new song will be coming at the beginning of February.
“The album comes out in April and the first taste of it will be at the beginning of next month, the first song and the artwork and the big reveal of the name, and all that. Pretty excited about that; it’s been a long time coming now. I recorded vocals for the album in May. So, it will be like a year almost until it finally comes out. It’s been a long time to think about it, let me tell you.”
Strnad also discusses why it was three years between records this time around. Long story short, it's because the band is just so damn popular they couldn't stop touring.
“It has usually been two and then a record. But it seems like there is just more demand for the band lately and we were able to tour another year on Nightbringers. Which was cool. I think that people were a little superstitious that we are not putting an album out on the odd year, and now it’s coming out this year… But we will take that risk. I don’t know if we are cursed now or what. The album… people were so excited for it, so we were able to keep going on tour. As long as demand was there, we had to meet it.”
