The Night Flight Orchestra Utilize ABBA’s Gear During First Sessions For New Album


The Night Flight Orchestra, who feature members of Soilwork, Arch Enemy and more among their numbers, have been in the studio recently tracking their as-yet untitled new album. Initial sessions have taken place at Nordic Sound Labs in Skara, Sweden with a drum kit used on ABBA‘s 1980 album “Super Trouper” having been enlisted.

The Night Flight Orchestra frontman Bjorn Strid (also of Soilwork) commented of the album thus far:

“We are beyond thrilled to be able to use such a musical piece of history for the recording of our new album. Jonas is highly influenced by Per Lindvall, the drummer in ABBA, who used this very kit during the recording of ABBA’s masterpiece “Super Trouper” in 1979. The sound coming from this kit is still fantastic and it’s gonna give that extra flair to our sound. We’ve had two recording sessions so far at Nordic Sound Lab in Skara, Sweden and will have a 3rd final session in September. Then the new album is good to go. We are super excited about and can’t wait to share it.”

Given the recording schedule mentioned above, it would see the album won’t be arriving until 2020 at the earliest.
