Last summer, MUSHROOMHEAD drummer Steve "Skinny" Felton told Rock Sins that the band was hard at work on the long-awaited follow-up to 2014's "The Righteous & the Butterfly" album for a tentative early 2020 release.

According to Felton, some of the recording sessions for MUSHROOMHEAD's next disc took place at London, England's famed Abbey Road studios prior to a concert in the city.

MUSHROOMHEAD recently inked a worldwide deal with Napalm Records.

The band's upcoming album will be the band's first since the March 2018 departures of longtime vocalist Jeff "Jeffrey Nothing" Hatrix and guitarist Tommy Church.

Felton told the Waterloo, Iowa radio station Rock 108 about the effect of MUSHROOMHEAD's latest lineup changes: "It's always cool to do new things with new people and not necessarily know what you're going to get. This will be MUSHROOMHEAD's eighth album, so I definitely don't want it to sound like everyone expects. I'm definitely looking forward to doing more experimenting. The unknown is really cool.

"As we write, we're creating stuff that we've never heard or felt before," he explained. "It's really, really awesome. In the long run, everything always ends up really dark. Everything's always creepy. Everything's always got some sort of sound design element to it that's not your traditional guitar lick or keyboard sound — there's something odd about it. The creepiness is never going to go away."
