Carcass Delay the Release of Their New Album

  • Axl Rosenberg

Well, here’s some news which certainly will not brighten your day: Carcass have opted to delay the August 7 release of their heavily anticipated new album, Torn Arteries. The reason for the delay? I’ll give you two guesses, but you’re only gonna need one…

Here’s the announcement:

“Well there’s no way our new album is gonna get release in August now, what with the ongoing pandemic, CD & vinyl manufacturers have closed and label distribution has been put on hold for the foreseeable future. There’s more pressing things to be concerned with right now, correct? Bunker down, look after yourselves, let’s see the next few months through and we’ll get the album released as soon as there’s some kind of return to ‘normality.’ Enjoy this tune in the meantime.”

And then they included a link to “Under the Scalpel Blade,” the track they released back in December.

Not sure what else to say here. I did warn you that this news wasn’t gonna brighten your day, didn’t I?

Hatebreed are in the same boat, you may recall. Expect this to become a trend. Sorry, folks.
