Yes! Meshuggah have announced their long-awaited new album, Immutable, scheduled to arrive on April 1st via Atomic Fire Records. The follow-up to 2016’s The Violent Sleep Of Reason, mark’s the group’s overall ninth full-length effort, and promised to be their “most esoteric sonic adventure yet.” Recorded at Sweetspot Studios in Halmstad (Sweden), mixed by Rickard Bengtsson & Staffan Karlsson and mastered by multiple Grammy award winner Vlado Meller (Metallica, Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, System Of A Down), their forthcoming effort will be available for pre-order on January 28th. The group has once again teamed up with artist Luminokaya for the cover artwork.
Guitarist Mårten Hagström comments:
“The title fits perfectly for where we are as a band,” Mårten concludes. “We’re older now. Most of us are in our fifties now, and we’ve settled into who we are. Even though we’ve been experimenting all along, I also think we’ve been the same since day one. The way we approach things and why we still make new albums, and why we still sound the way we do, it’s immutable. Humanity is immutable, too. We commit the same mistakes over and over. And we are immutable. We do what we do, and we don’t change.”
