Sweden’s The Haunted are set to release their latest album dubbed “Exit Wounds” August 25 via Century Media. The band’s longtime producer Tue Madsen once again oversaw the recording at Denmark’s Antfarm Studio.

In the 30 years since the release of their first album, ‘Vengeance’ , New Model Army have built up an ever increasing and very loyal fan base, and a reputation for staging fierce live performances. Their 2013 album ‘Between Dog and Wolf’ has been their most successful for 20 years. It was time to see …
