Voivod have confirmed that they’ve entered the studio to begin work on what will be their 17th album.
The band posted on Facebook: “It is with great enthusiasm that we announce that Voivod is entering the studio today for the next full-length album! Exciting! Stay connected!”
Voivod released the 7-inch Silver Machine EP in September via Century Media, with drummer Michel ‘Away’ Langevin reporting in June this year that the band had completed six tracks for the follow-up to 2013’s Target Earth.
He also revealed that the material was “very long and progressive” and that could lead to a double album.
“We have nine songs in the works and six are finished, so when we get back home in July, we have a lot of work to do between shows to finish the writing,” he told Metal Wani.
He added: “It’s in the vein of the 2016 Post Society EP. So far, most of the songs are very long and progressive. We want to write a couple of short rockers to have a good blend.
“So far it’s very intricate and progressive thrash metal with a bit of punk as usual. It’s still Voivod – it’s a newer Voivod and I think the spirit is intact.
“It could be a double vinyl because so far it’s already pretty long. Once we’re finished, it should be a pretty lengthy album.”
Further details will be revealed in due course.
Voivod picked up the Visionary award at this year’s Progressive Music Awards.
