Karnivool Announces New Album, Posts Music Video

Today Australian rock band Karnivool announces the release of third full-length album, "Asymmetry," via Density Records. The exact U.S. release date along with pre-order information will be announced shortly.

"Asymmetry" is the band’s first new release in over four years (following sophomore release, "Sound Awake") and the 14 tracks were recorded and mixed by producer Nick DiDia (Pearl Jam, Rage Against The Machine, Mastodon) in Byron Bay, New South Wales.

“I think each time Karnivool walk into another record we all want to explore new ground,” explains vocalist Ian Kenny. “We want to open the door to our musical basement, switch the light off and tumble down the stairs into god knows what. Each time we switch the light on again we are a different band.”

“We wanted this record to be a natural evolution from Sound Awake,” adds guitarist Drew Goddard. “It needed to be more honest and raw, sound wise and song wise, exploring unchartered territory for the band while holding true to the things that make Karnivool... Karnivool.” More...

Karnivool Posts Album Update and Photos

Karnivool have posted a dual update regarding their highly-anticipated second album. Guitarist Drew Goddard issued the following studio update:

"YES! There’s a pulse! We are alive and breathing in 2009. Firstly, we apologise for the lack of updates. It’s now completely apparent that when we create an album we have a tendency to get sucked headfirst into a vortex, some parallel universe - home to the fairies, gnomes and goblins and long fucking hours in the studio.

"Thankfully, we have an end in sight. We are spending the rest of this month and early February finishing extra tracking, (yes there’s lots) and then mixing through to the end of the month. We can’t thank everyone enough, for the constant flow of support and interest, and especially patience while we conduct our bizarre, drawn out and slightly masochistic ritual that is our songwriting/recording process. We’ve almost finished a new video blog that’s captured a lot of what has been happening over the last couple of months, this will be up in the next couple of days. Until then, check the pictures section for some snaps of the band at work in the studio, and for those who have not stumbled across it whilst getting lost in the wonders of youtube, attached to this blog is a live version of a song called “Deadman” from the show at The Metro in Sydney last year. The song will feature on the upcoming 2nd album due for release early this year. We will be revealing the album title and release date in the coming weeks and will continue to post updates more regularly from now and up to the time of release. We’re all very excited about what we’ve produced over the last 4 years, (haha!) and can’t wait to share it with you. Thanks again and check back shortly."

Additionally, two pages of photos from the band's recent time in the studio can be found here.

Karnivool's second, currently untitled album should hit stores this summer, and is expected to include songs that the band has been playing live for a while including "New Day" and "Goliath".

Karnivool In Pre-Production On Sophomore Album

Karnivool are currently locked away in a studio in Perth, Australia completing pre-production on the follow-up to their outstanding debut album, "Themata." A journal update from the band on the matter states:

"The 2nd album is shaping up to be a gem. You may have realised by now that we don't write albums very quickly, but we don't like to do things by halves. We are about to lock the doors of our comfy little studio which sits among the serene surrounds of the industrial hussle and bussle of Osborne Park where we will be entering the 'preproduction' stage. Joining us once again on the start of our excellent adventure is our good friend Forrester Savell. In the next two weeks we will be finishing tracks, tying up loose ends, chopping things up and sticking them together again, applying the lacquer where necessary, or taking to it with blunt objects where necessary. All in all, making the sure everything is exactly how we like it before we begin the real tracking process within the coming weeks. Once again, thanks for your patience and support. In the meantime here's a little video of what we've been up to recently. We will be posting videos and blogging on a regular basis throughout the pre-production and recording period, check back soon.

"In other news....Karnivool are amongst the first bunch of bands announced for the 2008 Homebake Festival. The lineup includes Crowded House, You Am I, The Vines, and shitloads more... This will take place at Domain Royal Botanical Gardens in Sydney City on Saturday December 6. Tickets go on sale 9:00am Monday August 18th. Check www.homebake.com.au or www.myspace.com/homebake for more details."

The Great American Rampage Tour Photos Online

Tuesday November 6th, 2007 I had the opportunity to photograph The Great American Rampage Tour which included Karnivool, Ankla, Skindred and Nonpoint. The show took place at the Wedge Nightclub in Austintown, Ohio, where fans can not only experience an awesome show but if you're up front, you can order your drinks right there without having to loose your spot in the front row. All of the bands put on an amazing performance and were some of the nicest guys to talk to. It was definally one of the best tours I've seen this year.
