Published Mar 08, 2016Norwegian metal sextet Kvelertak spent the early part of 2016 wrapping up recording sessions for their next LP, which is now confirmed to go live later this spring. Titled Nattesferd, the band's third riff-flingin' full-length hits stores May 13 via Roadrunner Records.
As previously reported, the outfit had been uploading photos of the sessions onto their Facebook page. The recording took place at Oslo, Norway's Amper Tone Studio, with production duties handled by Nick Terry (Lindstrøm, Turbonegro, The Libertines).
The full breakdown of the record has yet to arrive, but the band said in a new Facebook message that they "are very happy with this beast that [they've] created."
For now, they're previewing the upcoming collection with a new single called "1985." The track, a spit-shined rock stomp that wouldn't have been out of place on Van Halen's 1984 (save for the feral screaming), is streaming below. "1985" hits digital retailers this Friday (March 11).
Nattesferd follows Kvelertak's 2013 release, Meir. Info on the rest of Nattesferd is forthcoming, with pre-orders for the set going on-sale April 8.
As previously reported, Kvelertak will be touring North America this spring with Floridian sludge-pop practitioners Torche. The trip hits Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver. Date and venue specifics can be found here.
