At the Gates Announce New Album Title + Release Date
We now know some more stuff about the new At the Gates album! Specifically, we know it’s going to be called To Drink from the Night Itself, and we know it’s going to come out on May 18 via Century Media. We also know that Tomas Lindberg and his bandmates are pleased with the results:
“We have wrapped up the recordings of the new record, and we are super psyched! It has been a smooth process, and very creatively fulfilling. All people that we have worked with on this project have stepped up to our vision of the final product, and we are very excited about the result.
“As you might have seen, we have worked with Russ Russell on this one, and he is really a master of getting the most intense takes out of us, and also has an ear for the rawness that we were after for this one. The vocals were recorded with Per Stålberg here in Gothenburg, and he always makes me deliver to a 100%. Right now we are getting the mastering done, and every new song that is bounced to us produces huge grins on our faces. This album sounds hungry and mean.
“The title of our new record will be ‘To Drink from the Night Itself’, and it is, again a conceptual record. More details about the concept will be revealed once the album is more on its way. But it connects with the deep roots of the band, and has connections with some of the themes on ‘The Red in the Sky Is Ours.’
“2018, we are ready, let’s do this!”
This will be At the Gates’ first album with new guitarist Jonas Stålhammar, who replaces Anders Björler, who quit the band almost a year ago.
Hopefully we get to hear some new music soon… and hopefully that music is great!
