Voivod album next year says Away

Voivod are planning to release their 14th album next year, says drummer Michel ‘Away’ Langevin.

The follow-up to 2013’s Target Earth is to appear after the band have completed a series of seven-inch singles. And the material is likely to follow the form of recent track We Are Connected.

Away tells That Drummer Guy: “Right now we’re sort of touring the single.

“We have many split seven-inches coming up this year. One with At The Gates in April, another one with Napalm Death and another one with Corrections House, and so on.

“But eventually we’ll write a whole bunch of songs and compile everything into an album. I would say early next year.”

He says of We Are Connected: “It’s shameless prog rock – but it’s Voivod. It’s what we do naturally. We’re working on two new songs in the back of the bus on the computer and it’s definitely the same direction.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
