Since their return to the fold in 2014, the Swedish Death Metal TITANS that are At The Gates have picked up nicely where they left off with At War With Reality release proving very popular indeed. Luckily for us, the band have remained a strong cohesive unit and have now announced that they've entered the studio to begin recording what is set to be their sixth studio release.

Commenting on the forthcoming release, Tomas explained the thinking behind choosing Russ Russell (Napalm Death, The Haunted, Dimmu Borgir, etc,) as producer - "We are finally hitting the studio and are super excited about this! The songs have been worked on in such detail for the last 7 months and we can't wait to put them down to tape. Russ Russell was actually the runner up for mixing "At War With Reality", and we really wanted to work with him on this one. He has what we are looking for when it comes to sheer loud, blunt heaviness."

The band have also announced a set of European shows for next year with a fair few more dates promised in the near future:

04.03.2018 Tilburg (The Netherlands) - Netherlands Deathfest
21.06.2018 Halden (Norway) - Tons Of Rock Festival
13.-15.07.2018 Gävle (Sweden) - Gefle Metal Fest
27.-28.07.2018 Essen (Germany) - Nord Open Air
08.-11.08.2018 Jaromer (Czech Republic) - Brutal Assault Festival

Commenting further on the album, vocalist Tomas Lindberg stated, "This is going to be a darker, richer and more raging album than the last one. It has so much more real ATG emotions on display, and I would say, it has the same approach lyrically as the feeling of "The Red In The Sky Is Ours". More of a RED album, than a BLUE one. Can't wait for people to hear it!"

As part of the recording process the band have begun a studio diary of sorts:
