Carcass: “We Should Have an Album That’s Available by the End of” 2017

  • Axl Rosenberg

Ever since the release of Carcass’ totally kick-ass 2013 reunion album, Surgical Steel, fans have had one question on their minds: when is the group’s next record coming out?

Now guitarist Bill Steer has offered an answer to that very question! The good news: the album should be out sometime before the end of 2017! The bad news: the album won’t be out until sometime before the end of 2017!

Says Steer to Dead Rhetoric:

“We’ve got a couple of festivals next year, so in other words: an enormous amount of free time. Once we get started, we work very quickly, especially with Jeff. Jeff’s got a real work ethic, so we’ll have something we feel is in very good shape to play to him, then he comes in and critiques that. It’s just like a distillation process. Sometimes it takes a while for a song to reach a point where we’re all happy with it, other times, it happens on that day. I think we should have an album that’s available by the end of the year [2017].”

So, if all goes according to plan, there will be a new Carcass album sometime in the next twelve months. Hopefully, it will be good. The bitch of making a great reunion album is that you then have to make a great follow-up reunion album, which often ends up being an even more difficult task than to make the great reunion album. Take, for example, Alice in Chains. Black Gives Way to Blue? Awesome! The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here? I frequently forget it even exists! So hopefully Carcass won’t fall into the sophomore comeback slump.
