Soilwork To Enter The Studio For “The Living Infinite” This Week

Soilwork have blocked out some studio time for their upcoming new album “The Living Infinite“. The band will begin tracking the outing with producer Jens Bogren (Opeth, Amon Amarth) this coming Thursday, August 23rd.

The album will mark the recording debut of David Andersson (also of Night Flight Orchestra) with the group.

Vocalist Bjorn “Speed” Strid had the following to offer on the new sessions:

“It’s been a pretty long time coming, but as we speak I’m sitting here smiling my ass off listening to the demos that will forge into The Living Infinite. I’ve been feeling pretty damn restless from this break to be honest with you, therefore it is with great excitement that I’ve approached this new album.

As soon as we started working on songs in March, all my focus and energy went into building this new beast. We’re finished writing songs and I’m currently laying down demo vocals and I’m having a blast. I feel very inspired.

Around the time that we released The Panic Broadcast, I moved into a house by the ocean in a tiny fisherman’s village. The ocean has given me so much inspiration and raised a lot of existential questions, which will inspire a lot of the lyrics on The Living Infinite, the words Jacques Cousteau used to describe the ocean.

Pretentious?Hell yes, but in the most typical SOILWORK manner, with the right intensity, dynamics and melodies to back it up and make it real. I can’t wait to team up with the rest of the guys and start putting this album on tape, together with the amazing producer Jens Bogren!”

Phil Anselmo Talks Upcoming Split With Warbeast

Phil Anselmo (Down, ex-Pantera) recently shared some more info regarding his upcoming split with Warbeast—who are signed to his own Housecore Records label. According Anselmo, the split will be titled “War Of The Gargantuas“.

Speaking with Loudwire, Anselmo had the following to say of it:

“…I think the first order at hand between Warbeast and myself is that we’re doing a split both of us, two songs and it’s called ‘War of the Gargantuas.’ I giggle because it’s a nod towards the 1960’s film, a Japanese film called ‘War of the Gargantuas.’ It’s, as many things have been throughout, it’s sort of an inside joke between both bands and very much worth it for the old intestinal fuckin’ fortitude.

Either way I picked two of the most straight on songs out of my solo stuff, the full length is pretty chaotic – sometime next year I would say March at the latest we’ll get some solo bullshit going your way.”

Anselmo‘s contributions to the effort will be taken from his long-awaited new solo album “Walk Through Exits Only“. According to him, the material for that outing is currently tracked and just needs to be mixed. Warbeast previously revealed that their songs “It” and “Birth Of A Psycho” will appear on the aforementioned split.

Dance Gavin Dance Address Their Split With Jonny Craig

Dance Gavin Dance have officially addressed their decision to once again move on without Jonny Craig. Speaking on that, they offered the following through their Facebook:

“When Jonny rejoined Dgd, we were about to call it quits. Tired of touring and being away from home for 8 months of the year, we wanted to shake things up. We thought it’d be fun to do a dbm sequel with Jonny and go out on that. We recorded dbm2 and felt it would be a disservice to our fans not to let them hear the new record live. We did a tour and felt rejuvenated but Jonny wasn’t in a good place.

After trying to convince him into getting help over warped tour, we canceled a headliner in November/December 2011 and told him we wouldn’t tour until he sought out real help for his addiction. We got our good friend Matt Geise to fill in for a short run we did earlier this year while Jonny was in rehab. He was released and wanted to be out on the road immediately.

We weren’t sure how things would go so we only booked a small portion of the all stars tour to see if Jonny could still function as our lead singer. After a week and a half things were not going well. Everything came to a head when Jonny was publicly scolded by the owner of sumerian records for multiple offenses. It was then that we realized that our time with Jonny had reached its end.

We wish Jonny the best In his future endeavors but he will no longer be a part of DGD. We however will continue playing and writing music because it’s what we love doing.”
