Voivod Announce New Album The Wake
It’s been five years since Target Earth, the last full-length album by Canadian prog-thrashers Voivod, slammed into Earth’s core (though the band has spent those years putting out plenty of splits and EPs).
But today, the band has announced a September 21 release date for a brand new album called The Wake, complete with track listing and cover art! As you can see above, the latter is totally badass. The former is as such:
1. Obsolete Beings
2. The End Of Dormancy
3. Orb Confusion
5. Spherical Perspective
6. Event Horizon
7. Always Moving
8. Sonic Mycelium
Looks like standard Voivod fare–totally badass sci-fi stuff. We’re super down.
Keep your eyes peeled, as the first new track from The Wake is set to drop a week from Friday on 7/20. In the meantime, though the band are most touring Europe right now, North Americans can catch them at one of the following festival dates:
7/29 – Montreal (Canada) – Heavy Montreal Festival
8/4 – Lévis (Canada) – Festivent
8/18 – Las Vegas (USA) – Psycho Las Vegas Festival
