The eighth studio album by Norwegian black band Satyricon will be released in North America on September 17th via Nuclear Blast Entertainment (the album is due out September 9th in Europe).

"We are back. Sorry it took so long, but we needed the time to be able pull off a record like this," states band frontman Sigurd "Satyr" Wongraven. "Comparing this one to previous records is time wasted, it is Satyricon; constantly on the move. Naming this record Satyricon was the most obvious thing in the world. We have never done a record which captures the spirit of this band in such a way. Ever. It will demand a lot from you as a listener, but I know you will love it. It will grow on you and that is why it will stay with you forever. We won't tour as much in the future as we used to, and that will just make every tour more special. This album is for you and ourselves. It is our moment!"

"Satyricon" was recorded in Norway, produced by Sigurd Wongraven, and mixed by Adam Kasper. The album features a guest vocal appearance by fellow Norwegian Sivert Høyem of the rock group Madrugada. In-studio photos can be viewed on the band’s official Facebook page.
