The Haunted 1

The Haunted have reported that they plan on recording and releasing the follow-up to last year’s Exit Wounds. The band are looking at a fall release for the effort, guitarist Patrik Jensen offered:

“Not known as a band that likes to rest on our laurels, we’re pushing ahead with the follow-up to last year’s Exit Wounds album! We have most of the stuff written already, [and are] looking to record in August/September and to have it released before the end of this year. We’re very excited about the new material and can’t wait to give you the chance to hear it! Better nail down the roof in good time… and reserve the top spot on your X-mas wish list for this upcoming aural bad boy!”
