Official press release:
Sweden’s Dark Tranquillity are currently recording their 11th full-length album, Atoma, set for release on November 4, 2016 through Century Media Records.
The band comments of the upcoming album:
“That’s right! We’re more than halfway done with the recording of the upcoming album, and it’s shaping up to be a diverse and challenging affair that will feature a lot of different aspects of the D.T. sound. It’s hard to be more specific while still immersed in the creative process, but we’re incredibly excited about the material and can’t wait to share the results with all of you soon.”
Atoma is being recorded at Rogue Music in Gothenburg, the studio owned by D.T. keyboardist Martin Brändström. Mixing duties will be handled by David Castillo, known for his work with bands such as Katatonia, Opeth, and Candlemass. The cover artwork was once again created by the band’s guitarist Niklas Sundin.
The touring cycle for Atoma will start with a headline North American run in November, featuring Swallow The Sun, Enforcer, and Starkill as support acts. A European tour is planned for early 2017.
