Swedish visionary metallers SOILWORK has finished the recordings for the long-awaited upcoming eleventh studio album. The as of yet untitled album is the band’s first in more than three years and also marks the first to feature Bastian Thusgaard on drums, who replaced Dirk Verbeuren in 2016.

Today, the band released the first studio webisode in which they talk about the recording and production process of the album.

The record is scheduled for a tentative early 2019 release.

SOILWORK will embark on an extensive European co-headlining run with label-mates AMORPHIS and NAILED TO OBSCURITY as well as JINJER from January 11 through to February 16.
