Meshuggah to tour ahead of new LP

By | Published on Wednesday 14 December 2011


Having last unleashed an album in 2008, Swedish tech metallers Meshuggah are set to make a live return in anticipation of an untitled seventh studio LP, due out at some point next year.

The band’s guitarist Fredrik Thordendal spoke about the new album back in July, telling Metal Hammer: “I’m so excited about this one. Every day that we’re in the studio, we’ll play whatever song we’re working on, record a demo version of it to analyse at home, and then come back the next day, talk about it and try to make it better. I think because of this, it’s going to be our best album yet”.

12 Apr: Bristol, Academy

14 Apr: Nottingham, Rock City
15 Apr: Glasgow, Garage
17 Apr: Manchester, Academy
