On February 16, Nuclear Blast Records hosted an exclusive listening party in Los Angeles to launch "The Living Infinite", the new album from Swedish metallers SOILWORK, in which ten lucky SOILWORK fans from the L.A. area were selected at random from Facebook to be among the first people in the U.S. to listen to the new double CD. They were also invited to ask the evening's host, SOILWORK drummer Dirk Verbeuren, some questions. Watch the video of the up-and-coming music journalists in action below.SOILWORK's ninth studio album and first dual-disc release, "The Living Infinite", will be unleashed in Europe on March 1, and in North America on March 5 through Nuclear Blast Records. Produced by Jens Bogren (OPETH, AMON AMARTH, BLOODBATH), the CD features artwork by MNEMIC's Mircea Gabriel Eftemie. "The Living Infinite" features Justin Sullivan — lead singer of the English band NEW MODEL ARMY — as a guest vocalist on the track "The Windswept Mercy" and also marks the recording debut of longtime SOILWORK touring guitarist David Andersson (also of THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA).
SOILWORK's world tour launches with a 55-show headlining trek through the U.S. and Canada this March. Support will come from JEFF LOOMIS, BLACKGUARD, THE BROWNING and WRETCHED.
