VOIVOD Reworks Old Material On New Album Morgöth Tales, JASON NEWSTED To Guest

Plus a new song!

Voivod 2023

Voivod is celebrating 40 years as a band with a brand new record called Morgöth Tales due out July 21. Well, "brand new" in that it's re-works of their old material plus a new song called "Morgöth Tales".

"Morgöth Tales covers 40 years of space exploration," said drummer Michel "Away" Langevin. "It was really exciting for us to revisit a more obscure part of the Voivod catalogue, from thrash-punk to prog-metal to…?

"The title track is a new song, which we started writing in the tour bus and hotels during the Opeth European tour in November/December 2022. It has the vibe of the experimental music we are doing nowadays, with a new twist I think. We also had the great thrill of getting E-Force and Jasonic involved on this album. I hope you'll dig it, Chewy, Rocky, Snake and I certainly had a blast recording it. All aboard and ready for take off!"

Morgöth Tales is available for pre-order starting May 19. Morgöth Tales runs as follows, and features guest spots from former bassists Eric "E-Force" Forrest and Jason "Jasonic" Newsted.
