Despite threats of litigation from longtime label Century Media Records (who are apparently owed another CD from the band under their present agreement with the act), Holland's THE GATHERING are going ahead with their plans to issue the group's next studio album through their own Psychonaut Records. According to drummer Hans Rutten, “we will find a good and proper distribution in the USA to serve [all our American fans and…we are even working on the idea to do a short tour in the USA. Don't crucify me if it's impossible financially, but we do some research now.”As previously reported, THE GATHERING will collaborate with ULVER mastermind Trickster G (a.k.a. Christophorus G Rygg) on the upcoming CD, with at least one track set to feature a duet between THE GATHERING frontwoman Anneke van Giersbergen and Trickster.
