Insomnium Announce New Album and European Headliner Tour


Here’s everything we know about the new Insomnium album:

  • It will be released October 4, 2019.

That’s it. I could say “It will sound like every other Insomnium album” because this band is nothing if not consistent, but honestly, we don’t even know that for sure! Maybe they’ll throw us for a loop and include an abundance of xylophone and beat poetry on this album. It’s not likely, but it’s not impossible.

In any case, a new Insomnium album is always good news — like I said, the band is nothing if not consistent — and October is practically tomorrow. So we should hear a single soon. Presumably with that single will come a title. Album art. Maybe a pre-order link. All the requisite shit.

While we wait for that, European readers will be thrilled to learn that the band has also announced a headline tour of your fair continent, with support coming from The Black Dahlia Murder and Stam1na. I would kill to have that line-up play here, you lucky jerks. Dates are below.
