The Gathering have posted an update on their official website's forum about the new material they are currently working on.

"Dear all,
Sorry it has been a while since you've heard from us. We apologize for this. It actually means that we have been really busy with the band. During the last couple of months we created a lot of new ideas that lead to the first songs of our upcoming CD. Yes, we are working on a new album! Or actually, two new albums! Many of our new songs are very rock and guitar orientated and will end up on a heavy rock album for sure. The second album will be filled with more 'shoe gaze', dreamy tracks.
We can imagine if you are very curious about new vocalists. Currently, we are working with several. It feels very refreshing and interesting to work with different voices and it adds beautiful new colours to our music. Names will be presented as soon as our ideas become more concrete. As promised you will hear new material by the end of this year. The release of our new album is planned for Spring 2009.
On behalf of the band,
Hans Rutten"

Why do they need to make two separate albums? Why can't they just combine the guitar oriented heavy rock with the dreamy shoe gaze like they used to? (See Nighttime Birds) Ugh, I sound like a whiner... can't wait to hear it!

Great news indeed, i'm happy that my fear of the band disbanding after Anneke left has been proved wrong

There's hell of a long time left till the end of this year....It'll be a challenge waiting that long....I hope they'll recruit Lotta Höglin and Erik Molarin as vocalists....lol...especially Lotta would suit the music so perfectly.....
Can't wait to hear the new stuff and new singers.....
