Official press release:
After a strong finish on a series of tour dates across the UK and Central Europe alongside heavy-hitters' Meshuggah and Arch Enemy respectively, Swedish thrash metallers' The Haunted have been busy completing the recording and mixing process of their upcoming, ninth studio album effort. Recorded at Parlour Studios in the UK with producer Russ Russell (Napalm Death, Dimmu Borgir, The Exploited), the album is entitled Strength In Numbers and will be released worldwide via Century Media Records on August 25, 2017.
The Haunted's guitarist Ola Englund has checked in with the following comment: "Working on 'Strength In Numbers' with Russ Russell as an engineer and producer has been an incredible experience. His attitude and positivity has helped us to truly do our best when recording. He's just a killer guy to be around!," adding: "All the tracking for the album has been completed and Russ is right in the middle of mixing and mastering it. And from the early mixes I've heard, it's shaping up to be insanely heavy. No clean singing, no banjo, no pickup trucks...so fans of country music are gonna hate it, haha! Seriously: Heads are gonna roll. In a good way..."
