Swedish/British modern metallers SONIC SYNDICATE have commenced the songwriting process for the long-awaited follow-up to 2010's "We Rule The Night" for a tentative late 2013/early 2014 release.A short video update from the band can be seen below. SONIC SYNDICATE bassist Karin Axelsson gave birth to her first child on October 12, 2012. The baby girl weighed in at 3.02 kilograms and measured 46 centimeters long. Axelsson is engaged to André Gonzales, guitarist of the Swedish band BY NIGHT. Commented the band: "The response has been overwhelming from everyone - thank you! "Yes, we are back and we have started writing a new album! "We always said we would return and never let our fans down; we just had to take a breather and relax because during this time some of us have become parents. It's not that easy to just ditch and jump on a tour bus or into the studio when you've just had a baby! But now we are comfortable to be able to continue. "We can't wait to show you what we have planned! "We'll be dropping some more video updates on the writing process soon!“ SONIC SYNDICATE 2013 is: Nathan James Biggs - Vocals
