Voivod Drummer Talks About Upcoming Reissues

Voivod drummer Michel "Away" Langevin has told Greg Prato of Billboard.com that he is keeping busy with several upcoming Voivod-related releases, including the group's final studio album, comprised of tracks left over from the last sessions with late co-founding guitarist, Denis "Piggy" D'Amour. The group will congregate in the fall to finish off the tracks.

Also forthcoming are reissues via Sanctuary Records of all of Voivod's releases for the Noise label during the 1980s. Each album will be remastered and updated with a DVD of vintage live performances. "There are quite a few treasures there — like the first U.S. show, when we opened for VEnom at the Ritz in New York," Langevin says. "There are also the demos we sold through the fan club in the '80s, a lot of rehearsals from '83 and '84 when we were writing the first two albums and sketches for the album covers."

In addition, there will be book of VOIVOD-related artwork that Langevin has assembled, with a working title of "Voivod in Art" (Troubleman Unlimited).
