The Unguided - New Album Detailed

After guitarist and singer Roland Johannsson has decided to leave The Unguided, new frontman Jonathan Thorpenberg joined the band. Following the well received 2-track EP in December of last year, it's time to get ready for the full-length studio album! And The Battle Royale is scheduled for a worldwide November 10th 2017 release via Napalm Records and the first details have been revealed.

Richard Sjunnesson states: "We've without doubt sacrificed our five souls into this one. Everyone knew it would be a career defining record after the departure of our highly-acclaimed brother and we had no intensions to disappoint our fans nor ourselves writing and record this dynamic monster with innovative producer Dino medanhodzic. Everyone indeed brought their absolute A-game on this record and Jonathan over performed in every possible way whilst also bringing something completely new to the table. A table which much urgently needed it I'd say. Come November and the battle royale will make or break you!"
