At the Gates Complete New Album, 'At War with Reality,' Announce Release Date
Influential melodic death-metal band At the Gates announced earlier this year they would be making their first new album in 19 years. Not only has 'At War with Reality,' been finished--but it also has a release date of October 28 via Century Media Records.
This comeback studio album has the classic line-up of their 1995 effort, 'Slaughter of the Soul'--vocalist Tomas Lindberg, guitarsists Anders Björler and Martin Larsson, bassist Jonas Björler, and drummer Adrian Erlandsson.
Lindberg said in a staement, "We are very excited to finally have finished this new album. An album that we've been working on for over a year now. It's by far the most challenging record that we have made, but it's an honest album and I think that you will feel that it is faithful to the legacy of AT THE GATES. We have, through the process of creating it, been true to ourselves and our art. From hearing the first demos that Anders presented to the band last summer, through the extensive stages of songwriting, pre-production, rehearsals, recording and mixing, we now finally got the finished album in our hands. We are very happy to have managed to produce an album that we feel is truly 'us.' Something we can all stand behind one hundred percent. I can't wait 'til you all get to hear it!"
