AMARANTHE Begins Recording New Album

Swedish melodic metallers AMARANTHE have entered the studio to record the follow-up to 2014's breakthrough album "Massive Addictive". An October release via Spinefarm is expected.

AMARANTHE will spend their summer laying waste to stages at all of the relevant European rock festivals before embarking on a near-constant global touring schedule after the new record's release.

"As some of you no doubt have heard by now, we have entered Top Floor studios with Jakob Herrman in Gothenburg to record our fourth album," said guitarist Olof Mörck. "It is extremely exciting to be back in the creative zone after spending two years traveling the whole world in support of 'Massive Addictive'. We will spend one month here recording drums, bass and guitars before once again moving onto Jacob Hansen's studio in Denmark for vocal recordings and mixing."

He continued: "We are beyond thrilled about the new material, which is certainly AMARANTHE's most diverse so far; our trademark bleeding edge modern metal is ever present, but fused with an even wider range of genres than before, featuring everything from stadium rock, the latest in pop music innovation and danceable super-hits. Expect these tunes to enter your mind permanently, never to leave, later this year!"

In other AMARANTHE news, they've racked up some new certifications. The band's single "Nexus" went gold and "Amaranthine" and "Hunger" have gone platinum — all in AMARANTHE's home country of Sweden.
