Ihsahn Working On New Album, Gets New Backing Band


Ihsahn will return in the months to come with a new backing band and later on, a new studio album. He relayed of that via Facebook:

“Back on track with new music and new live shows!

First of all, the “In the Nightside Eclipse” 20th anniversary shows with Emperor have been a big priority for me in 2014 and I would like to thank everyone on stage, behind the stage and in front of the stage for making this celebration such a great experience! Also, a special thanks to Ibanez Guitars, Blackstar Amplification, Rotosound Music Strings and @NorskMusikkDistribusjonAS for all the continued support on the road!

Now, this has not kept me entirely busy for the whole year, so since January I’ve also been writing material for the next Ihsahn album, partly interrupted by rehearsals, shows and a total rebuild of our studio.

On the live front, several shows are all ready announced for 2015, and I’m excited to tell you that I’ll be back on stage with a new, handpicked line-up that I am confident will take my songs to a new dimension.

On that note, I’d like to thank Leprous for a fantastic collaboration over many years!! They have been invaluable in getting my songs to the stage and we’ve had some great trips around the world. Maybe now we’ll actually get to watch each other’s shows

That’s it from an autumn-dressed Telemark……Now, to the batcave!”
