Carcass Already Have A “Couple Of Songs Tucked Away” For Their Next Release


Work on Carcass‘s next effort has been progressing, though there’s still no firm timetable yet as to when you can hear it. Guitarist Bill Steer was recently asked by Ghost Cult when we could expect the band’s next release and how it would differ from that of their comeback album, “Surgical Steel“. He replied:

“Hmm, interesting question, really, because the new music will have to differ from the previous record to a degree, because you have to feel like the music going forward. With Surgical Steel, we had the advantage where people didn’t know we were working on an album until it came out, and expectations were low, which was great, because when the album came out, it was actually great, and it was surprising to many people.

When Jeff Walker and I get together and write music through, we’re going to have to walk a tight rope— writing music that’s identifiable, as well as breaking new ground.

We do have a couple of songs tucked away—the momentum just picked up, and at the start of last year, we got together and worked on a handful of tunes, and we’re excited with some of the things we were working on. When we have a quiet time this year, in 2016, we’ll look into the stuff more carefully.”

Until then, you can get your hands on the umpteenth re-release of “Surgical Steel now, as it arrived in stores last Friday, February 19th. Carcass are currently on tour with Slayer and Testament. They will also join Testament for series of off-dates.
