Sweden's SOILWORK has posted the following message on its official web site:
"First of all, we wanna say thanks for a great 2006. We had a great year and a lot of great tours. It was fun to see you all out there.
"Since the release of 'Stabbing the Drama' in 2005, we made about 250 shows for that album. Now it's time to take a rest, but also to get focused on the upcoming album.
"Right now we're working on the new songs. We have about seven songs ready and so far it sounds great. It will be a killer album. We will enter the studio at the beginning of March and, hopefully, the album will be out at late summer. We will keep you updated of the recording progress.
"And... regarding the guitarist situation; Soon it will be decided who's gonna replace Peter [Wichers].
"So, once again... thanks for the great support and... see ya in 2007."
SOILWORK's latest CD, "Stabbing the Drama", is available now on Nuclear Blast Records. The follow-up to 2003's "Figure Number Five" was recorded at Fascination Street studios in Örebro and Dug-Out Productions in Uppsala, Sweden with producer Daniel Bergstrand (MESHUGGAH, IN FLAMES, STUCK MOJO).
Peter Wichers left SOILWORK in December 2005 to pursue a career in producing.
