Carcass man Bill Steer wanted new album before 2016 tour

Carcass guitarist Bill Steer says he would have liked to begin work on the follow-up to 2013’s Surgical Steel last year.

But due to their touring commitments, it was decided sessions on new material would be pushed back to allow the band to spend more time on the road.

Steer tells Resident Rock Star: “I think some of us wanted to get stuck into that last year, but not everyone felt the same way. I think in vocalist and bassist Jeff Walker’s mind, we need to be touring up until the end of this year, and then maybe we can slow down.

“It’s torture for me, because I would have liked to have been working before this, but I’m just one person in the band. It’s frustrating, because you want to be creating new things, and three years down the line, if you’re still just touring a similar kind of set, it can be weird on a bad day.”

Carcass are currently on the road across North America with Ghoul, Crowbar and Night Demon.

“We’re grateful to be headed back out to play a bunch of great places we haven’t been to in awhile. See you this fall.”
