next year in march/ april.... http://www.metalinjection.net/latest-news/new-dark-tranquillity-will-be-fast-and-sound-like-the-bands-old-material It seems like a lot of Dark Tranquillity fans were split over how they felt about the group's 2013 record Construct. It was a little bit slower, there were a few ballad-type songs and overall it just felt like it was different than what the band was going for in say, the mid-2000's. Personally, I liked it because I thought the change was fitting. However, according to drummer Anders Jivarp we shouldn't be getting used to that kind of sound. In an interview with That Drummer Guy (below), Jivarp says the new stuff the band is writing is much faster and sounds like the group's old stuff! "I've been writing, like, 95 percent of it. It's very guitar oriented. It's very I'm surprised, actually, how a drummer and a keyboard player can create so many guitar riffs. 'Cause 'Construct' was a little bit different; it was more [It didn't have] too many guitar riffs necessarily. But I would say it's gonna surprise a lot of listeners. Maybe they will say, 'Oh, [it sounds like] old Dark Tranquillity,' with so much guitar riffs and stuff. It's a little bit towards that direction, I dare to say, even if it's not I played some of the songs for Niklas [Sundin], our guitar player, and he was, like, 'Woah! Fuck! What's this?' [Laughs] So We'll see. No ballads so far. I'm very happy with it This is what I've got. All this fast stuff. So Maybe the album after that will be the slow one. We'll see." Jivarp says the group will be hitting the studio in October or November to knock out the new stuff, so I guess we'll have to wait about an entire year to hear new old Dark Tranquillity. Damn!
