Metal legends Apocalyptica has signed a new deal with Silver Lining Music for a new album due in 2020. The band’s new all-instrumental album was recorded over a three-month period at Sonic Pump studios in Helsinki and was mixed by Andrew Scheps (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lana Del Rey, Metallica, Black Sabbath). An early 2020 release is expected. The album will be an all-instrumental album with no guests, like their earliest material.
The band commented:
“We are excited to learn how a slim record company structure plus all the marketing instruments of perhaps the biggest metal music powerhouse (with festivals, touring business, merchandise, etc) are set up for 2020. This feels like the absolute right company for the times we are in. We are very excited about our new album and we have the strongest belief that Silver Lining is the right partner for our music.”
Thomas Jensen, owner and founder of Silver Lining Music, says: “I have always been amazed at the sheer talent and visionary trait of Apocalyptica. It’s a dream come true to be able to work with them. With the leadership of Serena Furlan and the forward-thinking A&R direction of Rod S. Kukla, Silver Lining Music offer APOCALYTICA a unique and exceptional partnership. The best is yet to come.”
In a recent interview with Ghost Cult, Apocalyptica drummer Mikko Sirén said that “it’s been really fun to go back” to the band’s roots with the new LP, explaining that Apocalyptica’s musical direction has been influenced by the ongoing tour behind the re-release of its epic debut, “Plays Metallica By Four Cellos”.
