Tribulation announce a forthcoming EP entitled “Lady Death” which will arrive on December 22nd. The 7'' outing will feature the title track and song called “Skärselden“. Meanwhile, also a January 26th release date has been set for the band’s new full-length “Down Below“. States the band about their forthcoming releases:

“More than one year has passed since we did the last tour of ‘The Children Of The Night.’ During this long period of silence an intense creative process has taken place, and today we are proud to announce that our new album, ‘Down Below‘ is recorded and ready to be released. It contains some elements from all our previous releases but is also taking a step into uncharted waters.
We would like to thank our producer and friend, Martin Ehrencrona, for the excellent time in Studio Cobra. We are very pleased with the results! Also, big thanks to the amazing Anna von Hausswolff who contributed with her beautiful and awe-inspiring vocal landscapes on one of the album songs as well as another piece that serves as B-side on the forthcoming ‘Lady Death‘ EP. We salute you both!

Now, we are eager to spread our wings again and embark on a new journey across the world. The starting point will be Europe and the 12 th of January marks the first day of a tour together with Arch Enemy. Later in March we will travel further east and south of the continent together with Insomnium. We are all very much looking forward to what is to come!”

Tribulation Checks In From The Studio

Sweden's Tribulation is currently in the studio recording the successor album to the band’s 2015 release “The Children Of The Night" (reviewed here).

It is a strange and wicked brew that we are currently concocting together with Martin Ehrencrona. 2018 will see the Vampyre return in a new form to usher in a new era of ventures and audible gloominess."

This yet-untitled fourth studio album is set to be released in January of 2018. More information on the album will follow in the upcoming weeks. Tribulation will also appear as support for Arch Enemy on the European leg of the “Will To Power” world tour.

Tribulation Announces Lineup Change, New Album

With the release of “The Children Of The Night” in April 2015 (reviewed here), Sweden’s Tribulation has made a massive impact on the worldwide metal scene. After excessive touring in North America and Europe, the group took a well-deserved break not only to recover from the intense album campaign, but also to focus on what lies ahead: a change of drummer and a new album.

Tribulation published the following statement about the departure of drummer Jakob Ljungberg, who had been with the group since the album “The Formulas Of Death:"

“As the summer in the year of their lord 2017 draws near and the world in the north is again fully starting to wake from its slumber we, on the other hand, are forced to face an inevitable end in the departure of our drummer Jakob Ljungberg who has decided to leave the band. We have spent the last five years together through pain to heaven, in chaos to bliss!

"It’s been such a strange, wonderful, tiring and inspiring time and we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making this time the most important in the history of the band. We surely couldn’t have done it without you. We were like brothers even before the time of Tribulation and we certainly will be in the time after! Make sure to check out Jakob’s unique and most excellent band Second Sun where he sings and plays guitar!”

Jakob Ljungberg also commented as follows: “It is with a heavy heart that I leave Tribulation. These last years have been among the best in my life, but they wore me out and now I have to continue life on different paths. Thanks to everyone involved - you made this journey spectacular, thanks to everyone that came up and said hi - it meant the world to me, thanks to everyone who believed in me - you made me believe in myself. Jonathan, Adam and Johannes: I love you. 'The end of nights we tried to die - this is the end.'” More...
