DEATHSTARS Begins Recording Fifth Album, Reunites With Guitarist CAT CASINO

Swedish industrial rockers DEATHSTARS are in the studio recording their fifth album for an early 2020 release. The band has also reunited with guitarist Cat Casino, a key character in the group's history.

Cat, who has most recently been writing, producing and playing lead guitar for Hank Von Helvete (ex-TURBONEGRO), originally joined DEATHSTARS for the "Termination Bliss" tours in 2006, but left after the excessive touring in 2011 and 2012 because of personal reasons.

Cat says: "It feels great to finaly make it official. We've been talking about it for well over two years, so releasing the news really feels great. Especially since so many of you have been asking us about it every day. Now you know! We're back, I'm back, we're hungry and we have so much going on and we look forward to show you the things coming up.

"Even though I've been active writing and playing for other artists, this feels like coming home. And, to be totally honest, I've missed every part of being a piece of it. The love, fights, darkness, insane hours, parties and everything else that we all hate to love. Most of all, I've missed the completely MENTAL fans around the world. I'm stoked to see you all again somewhere in the world, and the new album is gonna kick some serious ass!"

DEATHSTARS will play its first show in four years at the Graspop Metal Meeting in Dessel, Belgium on June 21. Sitting behind the drum kit for DEATHSTARS' summer festival appearances will be Marcus Johansson from the Swedish band REACH.

DEATHSTARS' fourth studio album, "The Perfect Cult", was released in June 2014 via Nuclear Blast.
