Los Angeles, California’s Goatsnake is back in a big way. Having spent the Summer at Rock Falcon Studios in Franklin, Tennessee, the band is gearing up to release their first new full-length album since 2000′s Flower Of Disease.
The new album, due for a release on Southern Lord next year, will feature the familiar faces of Greg Rogers (The Obsessed, Sonic Medusa), providing drums, Greg Anderson of Sunn O))) taking care of the riffs, Pete Stahl (Scream, Wool, Earthlings?) on vocals, and new bassist Scott Renner (Sonic Medusa, Sourvein). Joining them again on production duties is Nick Raskulinecz, who, since being introduced to Dave Grohl during the recording sessions of Flower Of Disease, has gone on to work with seminal artists such as Rush, Alice in Chains, Deftones and Ghost, and has won Grammys with the Foo Fighters. United again, he and the band are sure to serve a menacing cut of the time-honored ultra-heavy rock they are infamous for.
More details of the upcoming album will be announced soon. Fans will be able to catch the band live at several confirmed live events, including the upcoming Southern Lord showcase in LA on October 15 with Excel, Xibalba, Obliterations, Baptists and Torch Runner, followed by a Friday night headlining set at Southwest Terror Fest III: The Western Front, on October 17, joined by Godhunter and labelmates Eagle Twin and Pelican. They have also confirmed new 2015 live actions including a spot at Maryland Deathfest in Baltimore, performing Sunday, May 24 with Amorphis, Anaal Nathrakh, Demilich, Inverloch, Neurosis, Primordial, Prosanctus Inferi, Skepticism, Tombs and Winter, as well as taking part in Temples Festival in Bristol, UK taking place May 29 through the 31, alongside acts including Sunn O))), Today Is The Day and Martyrdöd.
