At The Gates have detailed their new studio album To Drink From The Night Itself.
The Swedish outfit announced the album title last month – now they’ve revealed the tracklist and cover art for the record, which is set to arrive on May 18 via Century Media records.
The artwork was designed and created by Costin Chioreanu, with frontman Tomas Lindberg saying: “We had a lot of ideas for what we wanted to get across with the art this time around.
“Overall they were, not surprisingly, related to the general concept of the record. What is great with Costin is that he understands the band. He knows what we are and where we come from. And me and him also have a strong artistic connection.
“I have never met anyone that goes so deep into the world of my lyrics and concepts. When I first wrote to him describing my ideas, I was worried that my remarks were perhaps too long and too confusing, only to get back an even longer and very inspired response.”
Lindberg adds: “The inspiration for the actual front cover piece is taken from the Pergamon Altar, on display at the Pergamon museum in Berlin. It is of course linked closely to the concept that the whole record is based upon, but more on that later. But I will throw a name out there, for the interested ones – Peter Weiss.
“I can’t wait to get the whole record in my hands now, as this is just one of the many great artwork pieces that Costin has created for us on To Drink From The Night Itself.”
