It’s been three years since Halcyon Way released their Billboard charting album, Conquer, but the wait for new material will soon be over. Fresh off of their massive tours in support of Sabaton, Queensrÿche, Saxon and others, the guys have announced that they will be heading to Audiohammer Studios this weekend to complete the drum tracking with producer Mark Lewis. This will be the band’s first recording with new drummer Aaron Baumoel, and it sounds like it’s going to be something special.
Guitarist Jon Bodan released this statement, “The band is super hyped about our new material. We wrote about 27 songs, somehow pared it down to 17, and we will choose from that group what makes the final cut. The new songs are very heavy, very catchy, and very thrashy. We’ve spent a lot of time on the road over the last few years and we think they’re going to go over great not only on the album but live as well. Aaron has been killing it in preproduction and we think the fans are going to love what he brings to the table as a drummer.”
The new record is set to be released by Fall of 2017. Get excited!
