DEATH ANGEL guitarist Ted Aguilar recently gave an update on the status of the thrash metal band’s follow-up to 2019’s “Humanicide” album.
Discussing new music from DEATH ANGEL during this past Saturday’s (May 28) edition of his “Alive & Streaming” Facebook livestream, Aguilar said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “There is new music being worked on. There are some skeletons that [have] been floating around before [‘The Bay Strikes Back’ U.S.] tour. We’ll probably start continuing maybe. If we have some time before [we leave for shows in] Europe [this summer], maybe we’ll get together and work on some stuff. That’s for sure. But there’s some new material floating around. Nothing set in stone yet — just some skeletons.”

DEATH ANGEL unleashed their latest live album, “The Bastard Tracks“, last November via Nuclear Blast. The record was recorded live at The Great American Music Hall in the band’s hometown of San Francisco on May 22, 2021. “The Bastard Tracks” was described in a press release as “a deep-cuts collection of rarely and never performed songs from the band’s catalog” that was released digitally and on CD, vinyl and Blu-ray.
Also, back in October 2020, DEATH ANGEL dropped a four-song EP titled “Under Pressure“, which included a cover of QUEEN + David Bowie‘s “Under Pressure“, as well as a new tune called “Faded Remains“. Also included were acoustic versions of the DEATH ANGEL tracks “A Room With A View” and “Revelation Song“. That particular release was mixed by Max Norman (OZZY OSBOURNE, MEGADETH, BAD COMPANY) and mastered by Ted Jensen (LAMB OF GOD, MACHINE HEAD, HALESTORM).
DEATH ANGEL‘s “Humanicide” arrived in May 2019 via Nuclear Blast. In November 2019, the title track was nominated for the Grammy Award for “Best Metal Performance“, making it DEATH ANGEL‘s first ever Grammy nomination
