Update: “It is with great sadness that we have to inform you that our tour in Singapore, Australia and Japan will be postponed, due to circumstances beyond our control. We were very excited about performing songs from our new album ‘Verkligheten’, as well as songs from our entire career. It really hurts but at this point there’s really nothing we can do. All we hope is for your understanding, cause this not something we take lightly and we also realize that a lot of people will be disappointed. We kindly ask for your patience, as we will return in the Spring of 2019’’.
SOILWORK release their new album ‘Verkligheten’ on Friday 11th January via Nuclear Blast. SOILWORK singer Björn “Speed” Strid on ‘Verkligheten’: “I’m really, really pleased with it – it’s really, really cool. It’s possibly the most epic and darkest album we’ve done. And it’s also very melancholic, but it’s also very sort of uplifting. It’s huge. I’m really happy with it”.
SOILWORK are currently wrapping up the recordings of the follow-up to 2015’s ‘The Ride Majestic’ at Nordic Sound Lab studios in Skara, Sweden with producer Thomas “Plec” Johansson (The Panic Room). The as of yet untitled album is due in early 2019 via Nuclear Blast Records.
“We are very excited to tour Australia again and we will bring a brand-new album with us and we simply cannot wait to release this one. We will do one EU tour prior to the Australian dates, so our fans “down under” will be among the first ones to experience our new songs live”.
