NEW MESHUGGAH COMING IN MARCH
Here’s some happy-making news to kick off your day: Meshuggah have announced a March 27 release date (via Nuclear Blast, natch) for their new album. Sure, they haven’t announced the title, unveiled the cover art, or released any new music, but… hey, it’s Meshuggah! At their best, they’re great, and at their worst, they’re still a thousand times more thought-provoking than most of their peers! We’ll be talking about this album for months and months and months and possibly years and years and years pretty much no matter what. So it’s worth marking the release date on your calendar now, even if there isn’t much actual news to report.
Here’s a statement from the band, which also tells you pretty much nothing:
“After a long time of deep soul searching and intense wrecking of the psyches, the new album is finally done. Soon you will meet this colossus that will pulverize your being. Welcome to the other side on March 27.”
The only thing I really take away from that little message is that the album or first single might be called Welcome to the Other Side or something, assuming we think that Meshuggah would ever be so cheesy as to hint at an album/song title through a de rigeur hype statement. But, again, whatever, ’cause it’s Meshuggah.
