Danish metallers RAUNCHY have issued the following update:"So it is finally happening — our gear's all packed and we're on our way to the recording studio [in Ribe, Denmark] to finish up our new album. We're really looking forward to enter the house of gun jack again and team up with our friend Jacob [Hansen, producer] to complete what will be the MOTHERFUCKER of the year! We're dirty, we're heavy, we're poppy and we're prepared to make this album our best to date (maybe whatever, hahaha). Eleven songs have taken their final form and we will record one cover song as well. It's gonna be a sweet heart." RAUNCHY's as-yet-untitled new album will be released on June 30 via Lifeforce Records. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Straight to Hell", "Recovery", "Heavy Burden", "To the Lighthouse", "Destroyer", "Somewhere Along the Road", "Thieves", "Western Gutter", "A Dead Epic", "Black House, Glass City", "To Shatter Bliss" and "Get Fighted". The group's vocalist Kasper Thomsen previously described the new material as "dirty, melodic, thrashy, epic, melancholic and... drum roll... heavy. We are experimenting a lot this time around, with vocals, arrangements and musical expression, but we're not gonna change radically — don't worry! But as a wise man once said: there's no point in writing the same record twice, right?" RAUNCHY's latest album, "Death Pop Romance", was released in 2006 through Lifeforce Records. The CD was recorded in the summer of 2005 by Jacob Hansen (MERCENARY, FEAR MY THOUGHTS, COMMUNIC) at Hansen studio in Robe, Denmark and was mixed by Tue Madsen at Antfarm Studios (HATESPHERE, THE HAUNTED, MNEMIC) in Aarhus, Denmark. The album marked the recording debut with the group of Kasper Thomsen, who replaced Lars Vognstrup in 2004. A full-length MP3 of the track "Remembrance" can be downloaded here (5 MB). RAUNCHY split with Nuclear Blast Records in January 2005 after releasing two albums through the label (2002's "Velvet Noise" and 2004's "Confusion Bay").
