Canadian progressive sci-fi metal innovators Voivod are not only celebrating their 35th band-anniversary, but have also just wrapped up studio-work for their upcoming new studio album entitled “The Wake”. Expected for a late September worldwide release via Century Media Records, “The Wake” is the highly anticipated successor to 2013’s “Target Earth” album and the 2016 mini-album “Post Society”.
Voivod drummer Michel “Away” Langevin checked in with the following comment:
“ We are thrilled to let you know that our new album, “The Wake”, is completed! The music is like a futuristic prog thrash metal trek with many twists and turns, and the story involves the usual Voivodian topics: disasters, chaos, conflicts, strange plots and alternate consciousness. We are excited with the result and can’t wait to get the material out to you this fall!
Also, try to catch us when we tour Europe in September and October. It will be a great opportunity for the band to test some songs from our upcoming album.”
Here is a list of the comprehensive European run, which will feature the following rotating support acts: Maggot Heart (from 07 until 16 Sept), Nightrage (from 18 until 26 Sept) and Bio-Cancer (from 28 Sept until 20 Oct):
