King Diamond have finally provided an update on the long-awaited new album, The Institute. The group’s first full-length effort in fifteen years, will hopefully arrive later this year via Metal Blade Records.


King Diamond shared the following update on the lyrics:

“In my lair working on lyrics for the new album. The words may be blurred for now but in due time the madness will unfold, you have been warned..

Stay Heavy..

King Diamond”


Initially, the album was aimed to arrive in 2020. However, due to the ongoing pandemic and everything surrounding these times of uncertainty, the record has been pushed back ever since. Hopefully, it will finally arrive this year.
