Hackneyed has issued the following statement about the upcoming release of "Carnival Cadavre," the band's new album:
"After two years in-between rehearsal room, shows, being on tour and pre-production we finally managed to get our third album ready to launch. It's named 'Carnival Cadavre' and will be tested in human experiment at the Summer Breeze Festival in Dinkelsbühl on August 19th 2011 for the first time. Once again we produced our album with Corni Bartels at the Weltraum Studios and Björn Goosses (Killustrations) again purified our disc with a stunning artwork.
"We added another fine portion of groove and brutality for you and showed once again what Hackneyed is made of. With our new label Lifeforce Records we found the matching partner and we're really looking forward to our future cooperation. We're curious where our journey with the 'Carnival Cadavre' will lead us within the next weeks and months. And perhaps soon it's also close to you they say: The Circus' Back in town!"
"Carnival Cadavre" is set to be released on August 22nd in Europe (August 19th in Germany) and on August 30th in North America. The cover artwork is also available for viewing by heading over here.
Hackneyed has posted the cover artwork online for the band's new album "Carnival Cadavre," which can be viewed below. The band also commented on the art:
"Ladies and Gentleman, we proudly present the cover of our new album 'Carnival Cadavre.' As with our last album we've drawn on the proven work of Björn Goosses from Killustrations. And we weren't disappointed!
"An artwork 'having hand and foot (German saying for 'holding water')' in the true sense of the word! The truth behind the 'Carnival Cadavre' is only revealed after a second glance at the bright fairground and circus atmosphere with Ferris wheel and circus tents. And neither on the cover nor in the songs a lack of blood, guts or Hackneyed's very own black humor can be observed. But see for yourself."

German death metal band Hackneyed has issued the following update regarding the departure of their bassist Alex Buttner:
"Our long time fellow Alex isn’t playing the bass at Hackneyed anymore. After several weeks of being torn between his new job and the band he took the decision to leave the band. It was a hard time for all of us but we all think that it was the only way of keeping Hackneyed alive and going. We are sad that Alex, one of the founding members, had to leave us. We all hope that, despite his new job we will still find the time to rock some parties together."
"As Tini, a long time friend of the band, already played some shows as a temporary replacement for Alex she, after all, joined the band as a full member. We are very happy that with her we found a more than suitable replacement. We had a great time playing the first shows together and she really fits into the band. But see it for yourself at one of our next shows!"
