To start, singer Ivan Moody has shared some news about the band’s upcoming music and what fans can expect.
In an interview with hardDrive Radio, Moody was asked if they were keeping it “old school” as far as writing and recording. He responded by comparing the band’s trajectory to Metallica.
“It’s like when Metallica cut their hair or they made the ‘One’ video,” Moody said. “We love metal. Those are our grassroots, you know? But at the end of the day, as artists, we really have to experiment. I’m a lover of music, so be it not me to just stamp the black-and-white thing and not take the chance to really do something creative. And I’m really happy at the fact that my guys are in the same headspace. We’re at that level now where there’s no need to not cut our hair and make a new video. Horrible analogy, isn’t it?”
He then revealed that the band doesn’t have any set release dates for new songs, but their eighth album will probably drop next year.
“It’s absolutely open-ended,” he said. “I don’t want any fucking endgame on it, there’s no end line to it. I really want this to be ready when it’s ready. I’d love to have it out by the beginning of 2020. That’s my goal, personally.”
