Good news for W.A.S.P. fans. During a press conference on June 6th before the band's performance at this year's edition of the Sweden Rock Festival in Sölvesborg, Sweden, mainman Blackie Lawless stated that they are "about three weeks away from finishing" their new studio album, titled Golgotha, which will be released next year. You can watch the whole video below, where Lawless talks about the new album and also many other subjects.

About the lyrical inspiration for the upcoming album, he said: "Golgotha is Hebrew for place of the skull, and it's the hill where Christ was crucified. And it's interesting, when you see a lot of bands going around using Satanic images or images of death and things like that, and I'm thinking, all they need to do is look at the source, 'cause it's right there. I mean, if you want death, there's enough to go around there."

It's been five years since the band released their latest album Babylon.

I really liked "Babylon". Hope the next one doesn't disappoint.

I personally think it is a slap in the face to call the "band" W.A.S.P. It has been the Blackie Lawless show pretty much from the start. Especially after Chris Holmes left for the second time. No love lost between those two. Chris Holmes says to just take a look at album covers of "The Last Command" and "inside the Electric Circus" and you will see who is on the cover. Holmes trusted Blackie and got fucked over. He gets ZERO publishing royalties on his own writing. Blackie gets it ALL! I really like most WASP up to "The Headless Children" except Electric Circus. Not much since then though.
