Evergrey - Still Working On New Album

Original news, posted on 30.03.2010

Evergrey is currently busy on a new album, to be released at the end of this year. The band issued the following update:

"Been a long time since the last update but we are currently extremely deep into the songwriting and recording of the new album which should be released during the fall 2010. Do we need to tell you that it sounds good, great, fantastic... like always, right.

At the same time we are working with a lot of new people to ensure the best possibilities for a successful work for the new album. There will be more news about this soon. But there are some MAJOR changes in the world of Evergrey, and we are confident it will all be for the better.

At the moment we are booking a short tour for Europe in May. Tour of South America in June and some dates for the USA in connection with that. Festivals on top of that and so far we have a couple we can't go official with until we get the word, so be sure to visit us to stay on top of where you can catch us soon."

UPDATE (thanks to Abattoir)

Evergrey have issued the following update:

"As promised there will be a whole lot of news coming your way in the coming weeks and days.

We have and still are undergoing some BIG changes in Evergrey at the moment. This involves everything you can possibly imagine, and can't imagine. BUT we are also very determined and focused on making the best album we have ever accomplished! We have NEVER spent so much time on detail as we are doing on this album. Everything from sounds to song-structures is under the magnifying glass and nothing will be left to chance.

Purely business related we are also undergoing changes, both big and small and the only thing we can and are allowed to say right now is that being us is very exciting for the moment. Of course you will all be informed about this as soon as we know for certain that the plans are going to take place.

BUT we DO have some new tour dates as well as quite a few to still be added on other continents than Europe so for our fans outside of Europe don't give up hope we will try to please everyone as soon as possible, probably sooner than you think. And for our Euro fans, be sure you get tickets for these shows as they will be something none of you have seen from Evergrey before. Hmmmm what else might there be to tell...?

Yeah, back to the album! 11 songs are written and we will keep on writing and recording as long as time allows us. We are very pleased with the result and the direction we are heading right now. Maybe there is bit more weight put on melody and the orchestration of some songs. As said before, the sounds have become VERY important for us, every song has its own unique trademark as far as the sounds go. There are short songs (meaning 3 - 3:30 minutes). There are long songs (meaning up to 6:40) for the moment. There are slow, heavy, fast and atmospheric songs and of course most important of all - it sounds more Evergrey than ever!"

Yeah I am curious about the statement with changes but nonetheless I am VERY excited about this news.

Great news, but i didn't like the path they took with their last album "Torn". But if they are saying they were in some changes it could be very good

"big changes" rapping! loads and loads of rapping! can you imagine. Seriously I rather liked Torn though so I will be checking in on them.

...I am afraid.

all depends what "MAJOR changes" means...could mean radio/pop metal for fuck sake. I can easily see this band floating that way...and to some degree, they've already begun the journey.

Rikard has been a bit on the sidelines musically for the past few albums. Maybe he's leaving the band?
