Soilwork Unveils Album Art & Track List For New LP

Sweden's Soilwork unveiled the album artwork for the band's upcoming new double length album release "The Living Infinite" (shown below). The album is set for release on February 27, 2013 in Asia (via license to Marquee Records), in Europe on March 1, 2013 and in North America on March 5, 2013 through Nuclear Blast Records. "The Living Infinite" was produced by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Amon Amarth, Bloodbath), the CD features artwork by Mnemic's Mircea Gabriel Eftemie.

The band commented on the artwork: "After commissioning some pretty elaborate covers for the last couple of records, we decided to try something more sober and design-oriented fo r The Living Infinite . Who better to call than the man who created the iconic Stabbing The Drama cover? Mircea Gabriel Eftemie is not only a close friend but also an incredible graphic designer. We're all stoked about his work which is different from anything SOILWORK has ever done and perfectly suits the elegant oceanic concept of The Living Infinite. Enjoy, folks!"

Artist Eftemie added: "Seven years ago, I created the artwork for the Stabbing The Drama album and I can't believe how time flies! Here we are, with sexy gray hairs, working with my friends in SOILWORK again. This time, we built the cover around a maritime concept, aiming for something direct and symbolic. I believe we achieved that quite well. From my creative deck, I salute you and say: 'Long Live The Living Infinite.'"

As previously announced, New Model Army vocalist Justin Sullivan will provide guest vocals on the track "The Windswept Mercy." The track list for "The Living Infinite" is as follows: More...

Soilwork Announces Guest Vocalist

Justin Sullivan, lead singer of the English band New Model Army, will be a guest vocalist on the track "The Windswept Mercy," which will appear on the new Soilwork double album, "The Living Infinite."

Formed in 1980 in Bradford, England, New Model Army still has a very loyal following and Soilwork front man Björn "Speed" Strid counts himself among it. Sullivan shares the serendipitous back-story on how he met up with Sweden’s melodic metal maestros Soilwork:

"Some years ago, I met Björn somewhere in the deserts of the southwestern U.S. I expect we both had good reasons for being there - though things like reason get swallowed up in the strangeness of deserts. Anyway, I'm sure we were talking about deserts and the idea of desert music as Europeans always have an unending fascination with these wondrous alien places. ‘Would you sing on a Soilwork record?’ he asked. ‘Yes, of course’ I replied, and so, many years later, I suddenly get an e-mail from Soilwork in a studio in Stockholm at exactly the same moment NMA were in a studio in London. And by a miracle of technology was able to do a quick vocal on this great and strangely beautiful song. Perhaps you beat me to the desert music thing after all, Bjorn. Love the track. All The Best.” More...
