According to an interview conducted by That Drummer Guy with Michel “Away” Langevin, it seems they’ll be a new Voivod album sometime in 2016. This would be the first new full-length album since 2013s Target Earth, released on Century Media Records.
Said Away, at a recent show in St. Paul, Minnesota:
“We wanna release a bunch of seven-inch [singles] first. We have many split seven-inch [singles] coming up this year — the first one with AT THE GATES in April, and the new want to do another one with NAPALM [DEATH], and another one with CORRECTIONS HOUSE, and so on. But eventually we’ll write a whole bunch of songs and compile everything into an album, I would say, early next year. Right now we’re sort of touring on the new single that came out the first day of the [current] tour in Miami, ‘We Are Connected’. But this is coming out in April as a seven-inch with AT THE GATES.”
That song, “We Are Connected,” was posted online at the start of their current tour with Napalm Death, Exhumed, Iron Reagan and Black Crown Initiate. Looks like we can expect some amazing 7″ releases from Voivod in the coming months, and a brand new album next year!
