AT THE GATES Finally Announce the Obvious: They are Officially Back

Swedish death metal legends AT THE GATES are officially back.  With a reunion tour that hasn’t ended for years, the band have announced that they are working on a comeback studio album.  It is expected to be released worldwide by the end of 2014 via their new label partner Century Media Records.

AT THE GATES checked in with the following comment statement:

“So, here we are almost 24 years since the birth of AT THE GATES, and some 18+ years since our latest album ‘Slaughter Of The Soul‘. A lot of years have passed and we have embarked on some life-changing reunion tours and shows the last couple of years. So, why make a new album you might ask, and why now? Well, what we learned from the last couple of years hanging out and playing shows together, is that we enjoy what we do to the fullest extent. We love playing music together, and we love to hang out as friends. But, as a musician, we constantly write new music. It’s a huge part of our identities.

“We are fully aware that we have made some very drastic statements in interviews as well as the closing words on the DVD about the longevity of AT THE GATES, but things change, situations change and people change. When Anders sent the first song last summer, we had zero expectations of the outcome. We only knew one thing – That it sounded amazing! At the time we weren’t even sure there would be an album, but as things progressed, more songs came into existence, and we knew we were on to something great.

“We know you are all curious about the new material, and to make a simple explanation of where we are at musically, we would describe it as a perfect mix between early AT THE GATES & ‘Slaughter of the Soul‘-era AT THE GATES, trying to maintain the legacy and the history.

“We chose Century Media as a worldwide partner for the upcoming album. We have all been friends for years with people at the label. Jonas & Anders have a history with THE HAUNTED there (as well as Adrian with PARADISE LOST).

“So, we hope to bring you updates about the progress of the new album soon. The plan is to record the album in June/July with a tentative release in October / November of 2014 on Century Media Records.”

  1. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it won’t disappoint me just as much as this particular one. After all, I know it was my choice to read through, but I truly thought you would probably have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of complaining about something that you could fix if you were not too busy searching for attention.

  2. Good post. I learn something new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon everyday. It will always be helpful to read content from other writers and practice a little something from other sites. |

  3. I truly love your website.. Great colors & theme. Did you create this amazing site yourself? Please reply back as Iím planning to create my very own blog and would like to know where you got this from or just what the theme is called. Kudos!

  4. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?|

  5. certainly like your website but you need to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to tell the reality then again I will surely come again again.

  6. Oh my goodness! Amazing article dude! Many thanks, However I am having problems with your RSS. I donít know why I cannot join it. Is there anybody having identical RSS problems? Anybody who knows the solution will you kindly respond? Thanks!!

  7. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

  8. A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment. I think that you should publish more on this subject, it may not be a taboo subject but usually folks don’t talk about such topics. To the next! Cheers!!

  9. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!|
