MESHUGGAH have entered Sweetspot Studios in Sweden to begin recording their ninth studio album.
The band says: “Things are happening. As some of you figured out, we have entered Sweetspot Studios and have begun recording a new album. ::Spoiler:: There will be distortion and kicks. Also, we have other news. We are releasing [touring guitarist] Per Nilsson back into the wild to roam free in any way he sees fit. It has been a true privilege and honor to share the stage with Per and even more importantly we have made a great friend through our travels. Per. We thank you. You are a formidable human being!!
“So why are we releasing Per back into a more stable habitat you ask? The answer is simple. Fredrik [Thordendal] will be back for lead work on the album as well as touring going forward. In other words. The band is back together. In full effect.”
SCAR SYMMETRY’s Per Nilsson joined MESHUGGAH in 2017 as the temporary replacement for Thordendal.
MESHUGGAH’s latest album, “The Violent Sleep Of Reason”, came out in 2016 and resulted in a “Best Metal Performance” Grammy nomination for the song “Clockworks”. The album was produced by the band and engineered by Tue Madsen of Puk Studios in Kaerby, Denmark.
