THE HAUNTED album recording commencing soon; Scandinavian tour dates announced!


After finishing a successful UK tour together with Meshuggah last month, Swedish Thrash Metallers THE HAUNTED are about to commence recordings for their newest, 9th studio album effort, which is expected to be released worldwide by Century Media Records later in 2017.

THE HAUNTED’s guitarist Ola Englund checked in with the following status update for the new album: “After almost 2.5 years since the release of ‘Exit Wounds’, we’re finally hitting the studio again. This time around we have chosen Russ Russell of Parlour Studios to record/mix the album, so we’re heading over to UK early march to start with the drums. And telling from the pre-productions, this will be a bit more of a dynamic album than “Exit Wounds”, song-wise. I’m very excited to let the fans hear what we have in store. It’s brutality and beauty in perfect disharmony.”

In addition to upcoming tour of Central Europe supporting label mates Arch Enemy in March/April, THE HAUNTED have now also already announced own Scandinavian dates for August/September. Here is a list of all upcoming dates currently announced for THE HAUNTED
