After finishing a successful UK tour together with Meshuggah last month, Swedish Thrash Metallers THE HAUNTED are about to start recordings for their newest, 9th studio album, which is due to be released later in 2017.

THE HAUNTED’s guitarist Ola Englund : After almost 2.5 years since the release of ‘Exit Wounds’, we’re finally hitting the studio again. This time around we have chosen Russ Russell of Parlour Studios to record/mix the album, so we’re heading over to UK early march to start with the drums. And telling from the pre-productions, this will be a bit more of a dynamic album than “Exit Wounds”, song-wise. I’m very excited to let the fans hear what we have in store. It’s brutality and beauty in perfect disharmony.”

THE HAUNTED will be touring Central Europe supporting label mates Arch Enemy in March/April 2017.

The band have now also announced their own headlining Scandinavian dates for August/September.
