KING DIAMOND Says There Will Likely Be A New Album Next Year
King Diamond has triumphantly made his return to the pages of metal news once more in 2014, most recently with his announcing of a North American tour this fall! So what's next for the master of horror? How about a new record? In an interview with Rolling Stone where King Diamond spoke on the topics of surgery, grotesque things he's done and the like, he also revealed there would be a new record next year!
"We've done a lot of stuff. We are going in some new ways that are going to be amazing. I've been building a studio so I can do my vocals at home. Once it's completed, we can start recording. I have a title for a new record, but I won't say it. [The record] will encompass the things I need to write about after what I went through. But I can't say much about it because I haven't talked to the rest of the band about it."
He also spoke on topics the new record would cover, which includes chronicling the hardships of his life post-open-heart, triple-bypass surgery in 2010.
"It's tough to learn to breathe again. The doctors collapsed my lungs to do the work. When I woke up, it felt like I was being choked to death. I tried to pull the tubes out of my throat. The doctors tied me down to the bed. In my head, I was thinking, "Fucking kill me." It was horrible. I'm going to have to describe that feeling on the next album."
That's a hell of a topic to cover, and given King Diamond's track record of inducing the horror, we're sure it'll deliver!
