Finland's SENTENCED have announced plans to play a few European festivals during the summer, including Summer Breeze, which is set to take place August 19-21, 2004 in Abtsgmünd, Germany.
"We will throw in some brand-new stuff during our show this summer, because we don't want to play a 'best of SENTENCED' kind of set this time around. That would be too boring," drummer Vesa Ranta said.
The band are currently writing and rehearsing the new material.
"We haven't worked on too many new songs yet as a band, but I know that Miika [Tenkula, guitarist], Sami [Lopakka, guitarist] and Ville [Laihiala, singer] have written lots of new material [on their own]. We are now rehearsing at a small studio and it's a very good place to build new songs.
"We are going to enter the studio next autumn, so I guess that the new album will arrive in the beginning of the next year. But it's up to record company of course...
"I guess it will take about two months to record the new album... It's a lot longer than it used to take during the old days when we used to record albums in a week... For example, it only took ten days to make [1993's] 'North From Here'," Ranta laughed.
