Trail Of Tears - Working On New Material

Norwegian metallers Trail Of Tears are in the pre-production phase of a new studio album. A clip from the studio can be watched below. Here's an update from the band:

"Ok, so it's been a while since the last update from the Trail camp. The reason for this silence is simple: we have been keeping ourselves busy writing some new tunes and trying out a few ideas in the studio. We have to say that it has been a good experience and some of the ideas which have surfaced so far sound pretty damn exciting to our ears! We are continuing to write material for the next album and will spend a few more months creating something that will live up to our own expectations and goals and hopefully raise a few eyebrows as well!"

Trail Of Tears - Guitarist Leaves The Band

Trail Of Tears guitarist Pål Olsen has parted ways with the band after three years of service. The band issued the following statement:

"Our guitarist, party-hat chief and beer drinker extraordinaire, Paul, has informed the rest of us that he is leaving the band. His decision is based on lack of time and a general wish to concentrate on the band that he co-founded, Guardians Of Time. We think it sucks to lose a talented guitarist as well as a genuinely great guy but this decision is probably for the best both for Paul, as well as for the band and we absolutely respect it and wish Paul much luck and happiness in the times to come. Trail of Tears will not bring a new member into the family as we are very much content with how the situation is at the moment and so the band will continue as a 5-piece.
We also want to make it perfectly clear that this will not affect the upcoming festivals and shows, nor will it affect the writing and pre-production work for the next album, a process that we are well underway with."

Here are a few words from Paul: "Due to my commitment to Guardians Of Time, I can no longer give 100% of myself to Trail of Tears. Anything less than 100% feels wrong for me when it comes to such a great band, and I see no other option than to leave the band. My time in Trail of Tears has been a great run. I have been lucky enough to contribute to one of the band's best albums, Bloodstained Endurance, and we have played a lot of great shows together. My last gig with Trail of Tears at Metal Camp in Slovenia a few weeks ago was a good ending for me. We part ways as good friends, and I wish them the best of luck in the future."

Trail Of Tears - To Enter Studio In November

Original news, posted on 07.08.2008

Trail Of Tears have posted the following update:

"It is with great pleasure that we announce that Trail of Tears will enter Soundsuite Studio in Marseille, France with acclaimed producer Terje Refsnes on November 3rd 2008 to start recording our sixth studio album! The band expects to spend six weeks tracking the yet untitled effort which will be released worldwide on Napalm Records in early 2009.

Comments vocalist Ronny Thorsen:

"We are beyond stoked to enter the studio again at Soundsuite with our fellow Norwegian Terje Refsnes. This will be our third album recording in beautiful Marseille and we are boiling over with creativity and excitement! So far we have about 14 songs ready, with an additional four or five on the drawing board. It will be a difficult challenge to figure out which ones will end up on the final product but definitely something we look forward to."

Due to the preparations, the band has also decided to postpone the planned South American tour in September/October.

Vocalist Ronny Thorsen said:

"We hope that everyone will understand and support this decision as it is the only right one for the circumstances. We want to deliver a full production and a killer live experience when we finally come to South America and not some amputated half-assed shows. It is a known fact that it takes a considerable amount of time to organise such a tour in South America as opposed to Europe, not to mention finding the right promoters. Our main priority now is to set our minds 100% into making this album as astonishing as it has to be and therefore we see no other alternative than to postpone the tour. Please note that we are using the word postpone here, we WILL reach your shores after the new album is released to give you a show that you as well as the band deserves!"

UPDATE (thanks to Abattoir)

As previously announced, Trail Of Tears will be recording a new album. Here is the latest news from the band:

"The studio session for our new album has officially started in Sound Suite Studio in Marseille, France! We will spend six weeks in the company of producer Terje Refsnes recording this, our 6th album and we are really stoked about the material at hand. The plan is to record 16-17 songs in which we will pick 11 or 12 to be featured on the final product. There will also be a limited edition of the album which will include bonus tracks as well as different packaging. Mastering duties will as usual be handled by Mika Jussila at Finnvox Studios in Finland and the album will see a world-wide release next year through Napalm Records."
