MESHUGGAH: New Album Is 'Coming'

MESHUGGAH has canceled its plans to reschedule the band's 2020 festival appearances for next year.

Although the Swedish extreme tech-metal pioneers were hoping to play the same festivals in 2021 that ended up being canceled this summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic, scheduling conflicts have forced them to scrap the shows altogether.

Earlier today, MESHUGGAH issued the following statement via social media: "As previously communicated our intent was to keep our commitment to all festivals and shows planned for summer 2020, that couldn't take place due to the Covid-19 pandemic, by re-confirming them for the same dates in summer 2021.

"MESHUGGAH and their management would like to apologize to all fans and promoters being affected by this.

"Some good news is to be found in here though: there is a new MESHUGGAH album coming..."

MESHUGGAH's last disc, "The Violent Sleep Of Reason", came out in 2016 and resulted in a "Best Metal Performance" Grammy nomination for the song "Clockworks".

"The Violent Sleep Of Reason" was produced by the band and was engineered by Tue Madsen of Puk Studios in Kaerby, Denmark.

As previously communicated our intent was to keep our commitment to all festivals and shows planned for summer 2020,...
