Deathstars To Record New Album, Announces Lineup Change

After the "Made in Germany" tour 2011/2012 together with Rammsteain, Swedish act Deathstars began writing new material for an upcoming album.

In May 2013, Deathstars will do a shorter tour in Australia, headline the MainStage at Blackfield Festival, Germany in June and then go back to Sweden to get mobilized for the recordings that are scheduled to start in July.

The album, which is yet untitled, marks the band's fourth full-length release. The recordings will take place in Studio Bohus, Sweden in July and August together with producer & technician Roberto Laghi, who will co-produce the album with Nightmare Industries.

"It's a ride through the most extreme nightclubs in hell, It's got more edge, it's got a rougher side, and it's less sugar coated than our last full length album with darker more twisted melodies. It's got a devilish attitude with a stiff upper lip yet beautiful in a dark deceiving way," says Nightmare Industries.

"Deathstars is an adventure for us. It's as if it is a phenomenon of it's own, and our forum for destruction, glitter and darkness. We are very excited about the new material and every time we hit the studio we never know what the outcome will be, i mean we have a general idea but we're never a 100% sure how the final result will be until we're done and can sit back and listen to it," adds Whiplasher Bernadotte

"To add live drums on to Deathstars already massive sound, just makes it even more massive and darker. To enter the studio this summer with great material and Sweden's no.1 drum recorder makes things very exciting," says Vice.

Deathstars has also parted ways with guitarist Cat Casino, who wanted to focus on other things in life but death. He would like to say thanks a million times to the fans for all the memories from the time with the band. Cat comments: "It's been an amazing ride and I wish the band the best of luck for the future."

Deathstars will continue as a four piece for a while and are not looking for a replacement yet. "It's hard to replace Cat on a personal level so we won't even bother for now. We're still close friends with Cat and it's not in our plans to look for a new partner in crime. Right now our focus is on the recording process of the new album and after that we'll see if we continue as a 4 piece or find a replacement before the touring starts," says Skinny Disco.
