Below is our complete Malpractice news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Finnish act Malpractice has returned from a lengthy break and is beginning the recording of a fourth album in April at Astia-Studios in Lappeenranta, Finland. Malpractice's deal with Spinefarm-Universal ended in early 2011, and the band still has a full album's work of material left over from that time.
“We decided not to just sit on this gem we have written. This kind of an album totally deserves to be released,” states band’s leader Joonas Koto.
Malpractice will begin recordings without a record deal and just like on previous album “Triangular," the producer duties will be shared between guitarist Joonas Koto and drummer Toni Paananen.
“We don’t know when or who will release the album yet but it will come out eventually one way or another," adds Joonas.
Recording updates and further details on Malpractice can be found at the band's Facebook profile.
Finland's Malpractice has issued the following update about writing new material:
"Here's the latest newsflash from the Malpractice camp. We are currently writing material for our fourth studio-album. We have already four full songs written which means about 30 minutes worth of new kick-ass material! The next album is planned for the beginning of 2010.
"Meanwhile, since the 'Triangular Tour' is over, check out the 'Triangular Tour' diary from our forum. The diary is in English and Finnish. You can also observe how the songwriting process is progressing from the brand new Studio Diary 2009 section which is being updated along the way."
Finnish band Malpractice has issued the following band update:
"We are not dead!!!
"Hey there folks! After a short break we are back in business! We're happy to inform you, that at the very moment Malpractice is writing new material. Jope and Toni got together on May 21st to check out some riffs and to jam, just to see how much material do we have to start with. And things started to happen really fast. After 1 ½ hours at the rehearsal place we had our very first new Malpractice song done!
"During that two day session we recorded about 10 minutes of material and so far everything rocks like hell! So it looks really good… The new stuff is pretty odd, but if you like the ”Triangular” stuff, you will definitely love the new stuff as well! We are on fire!
"At some point we are gonna release (yes, yet another…) diary about writing, arranging, rehearsing and finally (sometime in the future) recording the new stuff, so you can follow how we progress in making of the next Malpractice album. But please be patient, it still might take a little while before it’s in stores…
"Meanwhile, check out the Triangular-Tour Diary, to see how the last leg of that tour went. Toni will add the rest of the diaries there soon and Jope will translate them in English shortly after."
