OBITUARY Aims To Release A New Album In March
Obituary's last full-length release was 2014's Inked In Blood, which I thought was one of the band's better releases. Then this year we got the Ten Thousand Ways To Die EP, which was two new tracks and a subsequent live album. Guitarist for the group Trevor Peres revealed in an interview with The Breathless Sleep that "Ten Thousand Ways To Die" will be on the band's upcoming album, which is potentially due to be released next March.
"Our new album is gonna come out, like, March-ish, in March. We just finished recording this, literally, before this tour started. In fact, there's some leads that still have to be finished, which we're doing in a hotel tomorrow. So the actual title… We haven't made a decision [what to] title the album yet. I think there's gonna be, like, eleven songs on the album, including 'Ten Thousand Ways To Die' — that song is gonna be on it, and another ten or eleven on top of that. The guy who recorded, Joe Cincotta — he's the one who did our live recordings — he's the one mixing the album right now; he's in New York mixing it. So every day he's been sending us different mixes, so it's really brutal."
If you haven't heard "Ten Thousand Ways To Die" yet, check it out below. If the rest of the album follows suit with that one track, Obituary is on its way to releasing something really solid in 2017!
For no reason whatsoever, here's the band excellent "Violence" music video from last year:
