Proggers Fates Warning have good news today and fans will be craving new material since their last album FWX was released back in 2004. It is about time they return almost a decade later. The new offering is called Darkness In A Different Light and will be released on September 30th, 2013 in Europe and October 1st, 2013 in North America via InsideOut. For now, there's still no audio previews for us to hear, but you can see the album's artwork designed by Conte di San Pietro below.

Darkness In A Different Light also marks the first release for the band's current line-up of Ray Alder (vocals), Jim Matheos and Frank Aresti (guitars), Joey Vera (bass) and Bobby Jarzombek (drums).

The album was produced by Matheos and mixed by long time Fates Warning engineer Phil Magnotti, while mastering was handled by Maor Appelbaum at Maor Appelbaum Mastering, California.

Vocalist Ray Alder checked in with a comment: "Darkness In A Different Light is the result of almost two years of very hard work from everyone in the band. I believe that this line-up is the best that Fates has ever had, and I also think that it comes through in the music on this album. It's been almost nine years since our last studio album and I couldn't be more proud of what we've accomplished here. We are looking very much forward to playing some new songs for our fans who have stuck by us over all these years. We plan on touring as much as possible for Darkness In A Different Light and hopefully we'll hit a few places we've never been..."

Whether or not the group returns in full form is still to be seen but it is happening.

Exciting news. I cannot wait.

They did take their sweet fucking time. Hopefully the album will be at least as good as FWX.

Might be worth checkin' out. Not sure about the "best lineup ever" comment. I mean...Zonder, man. Zonder.

Sweet news indeed

One of the most anticipated albums this year for me, definitely. I absolutely love FWX, so that will be hard to top.

I think it's fair to say that this will be getting bought

It's about time. Fates Warning had a very long album hiatus. Just perfect news people.

I am wondering if Jim Matheos has anything left in the tank. He is one of my favorite musicians ever, please go out with a bang...
Antidote - 05.08.2013 at 02:11  
Why should Jim "go out" in the first place? He has the fantastic FW, brilliant OSI and great Arch/Matheos project...and they're all going strong. I think he's got plenty in the tank left Don't you think?

I remember reading that most of the stuff Jim wrote for the Arch/Matheos project was intended for a new FW album. Let's see what he comes up with for this album. I no doubt wish he keeps making music till he's 80

They surely took their time, I'm sure I'll love everything that has Ray Alder on vocals, he has a quite singular voice.
