Marduk announced via Facebook a new album in 2015. Titled, Frontschwein, and “aiming” for a January release, this would be the band’s 13th studio album, and first since 2012s Serpent Sermon.

Guitarist and founding member Morgan Steinmeyer spoke with Metal Blast (via Blabbermouth) earlier this year about the new album:

“We’re putting together all the music by ourselves. After we finish this tour we’ll go back and let everything fall into its right place. The concept is ready, I’ve completed the lyrics for 8 or 9 songs and we have a ton of ideas, it’s just that we haven’t been able to get together. We’ve all been working on the music and written 5 or 6 songs each.”

As noted by Metal Sucks, the term Frontschwein is, “an amusing, ironic, or derogatory term for a simple on the front fighting soldiers.”
