Swedish metal band Soilwork have finished recording their upcoming 11th studio album. ‘Verkligheten’ is set to be released on January 11, 2019, via Nuclear Blast.
In conjunction with the album announcement, Soilwork dropped the first single “Arrival” from the upcoming record.
Soilwork explained the title for the album by stating, “Verkligheten is the Swedish word for reality, the entity that we’re all trying to escape from. Verkligheten is our attempt to try and go somewhere else, to express all those things that are born in between hypnagogic states and frenzies of hyperrealism.”
Coinciding with the release of Verkligheten, the band will embark on an extensive European co-headlining tour with label mates AMORPHIS (whose singer, Tomi Joutsen, is also featured as a guest on the song ‘Needles And Kin’).
The limited first edition of the CD version of the album will feature different special artwork with a lavish foil print and will include 4 more tracks.
