Melodic death metal veterans Soilwork are back with big news! After their EP release back in December of 2021, it is time for the band’s first studio album in three years. Proudly Soilwork announce their twelfth and latest masterpiece, Övergivenheten, which will be released on August 19th via Nuclear Blast Records.
Musically and lyrically evolved, the band release their most complex and elaborate album to date which marks a new phase of their career. Not only due to the tremendous effort and time they put in but also the results on the album reflect years of development and experience as a band, which is ultimately provided on Övergivenheten for the fans to enjoy.
Soilwork’s vocalist Björn Strid comments on their new long player: “The title track of this album just might be the pinnacle of this band’s musical journey – it sums up everything that we’ve ever been about and the sometimes risky musical venture that this band embarked on some twenty years ago. To me this song is as close to the heart as it gets.”
The announcement of Övergivenheten comes with the band’s first single, the title track, which delivers a great introduction to Soilwork’s first studio album in three years – watch it here!
And as if that wasn’t enough excitement for one day, the band have announced that they are set to return to Australia this November courtesy of Hardline Media!
The tour will start off in Perth, before heading through Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne and then end in Brisbane, playing songs from the new album Övergivenheten, as well as all the classics from their long and illustrious career.
