In a recent interview with Metal-Rules.com, AT THE GATES guitarist Anders Björler stated about the possibility of the group recording a new studio album, "It seems pointless after 12 years. I think people might think they want it, but when they actually hear it I don't think they'll want it anymore. That's our feeling about it, at least. 'Slaughter of the Soul' was a very good album to end with, as it would be very hard to top."
AT THE GATES were the featured guests on the July 27 edition of Indie 103.1 FM's specialty metal program "Chaos with Full Metal Jackie". Listen to the interview at this location.
AT THE GATES wrapped up its North American tour on July 27 at the Henry Fonda Theatre in Hollywood, California. Also appearing on the bill were DARKEST HOUR, MUNICIPAL WASTE and TOXIC HOLOCAUST.
