After a highly successful run of European festivals and select club shows, Sweden's Soilwork has started writing music for the follow-up to "The Panic Broadcast," which debuted the U.S. Billboard charts at #88 upon its release in July 2010.

Commented vocalist Björn “Speed” Strid: “It's been an intense summer and at this point, me and the boys are hibernating in pretty much every corner of the world and putting our next album together. Many songs are yet to be written but the inspiration is flowing! People can expect a continuation of the intensity and presence of The Panic Broadcast, only taken to a higher level. That's the mindset. We will do some touring next year as well, before hopefully entering the studio sometime in the early fall.

"The album title is already set: 'The Living Infinite.' Chew on that for a bit and don't spit it out until the music is invading your ears, folks! Until then, make sure you follow the songwriting process and other news on Soilwork's official Facebook page and website. Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and thank you all for your continuous support!"

Additionally, Soilwork has uploaded new footage from the band's performance at last summer’s Roskilde festal in Denmark. Check out an exclusive on-stage video for “Two Lives Worth Of Reckoning” below.

Thank god. So excited, I need new Soilwork. Panic Broadcast was kickass, I wouldn't mind a continuation of that at all. :)

2. this band sucks now writes:

A Third tier band. This band is an in flames wannabe. Their older stuff was ok, but IN Flames older albums absolutely demolishes any of their efforts. I'll pass.

Actually IF hasn't been a top tier band since Clayman and even that may be pushing it. Granted Soilwork came later but The Chainheart Machine could definitely match up with IF's best work. And The Panic Broadcast is a return to form in some aspects and kills anything IF has done since Clayman. And they're going to continue that direction? They're back to a top tier band. The fact that Soilwork is writing good music again makes them exciting and relevant, unlike what IF has done the last 10 years.

They may be a third tier band, however In Flames has slipped lower than third tier at this point

At this pount,Soilwork's stuff far exceeds IF's stuff imo. When was the last great In Flames album released? 99-00,? Panic Broadcast crushed anything IF's done in 10-12 years,fact! If you like radio friendly,sugar coated,Gothenburg,In Flames is your band! Soilwork blows 'em off stage anyways!

6. Both are good writes:

IMO Soilwork peaked with Natural Born Chaos and IF peaked with Colony or Whoracle, but the music of both bands is still good. IF's newest album is much better than ASOP of you listen to it. I know the bands aren't as good as they used to be, but below third tier? really?
