Hot News: The Haunted – Announce new album title, release date and launch cover artwork!

Swedish Metal institution The Haunted can finally reveal some details about their upcoming, much anticipated new album, which sees the band return to their classic deadly thrash metal sound.

The Haunted’s new album, which was again recorded with the band’s longtime producer Tue Madsen at Antfarm Studio (Dark Tranquillity, Heaven Shall Burn, Sick Of It All, etc.) in Denmark, is symbolically and programmatically entitled “Exit Wounds” and will be released on August 25th, 2014 in Europe and September 2nd, 2014 in North America via the band’s longtime label partner Century Media Records.

The Haunted’s vocalist Marco Aro commented on the album’s impending release’s title and artwork as follows:

“Ok my friends, so here we are again…at the threshold of a new The Haunted release. It maybe doesn’t sound very exiting to some…but…it is!!!

This time around we’ve found our way back to where we once started! You could say that we’ve gathered the old crew, both in music and the artwork. Our old friend Andreas “Diaz” Pettersson is back, an amazing artist with a rap sheet which includes the artwork on no less than four The Haunted albums. He always finds a way to put our thoughts into print where he sometimes even scares us a bit…and this release is no different.

We decided on “Exit Wounds” as being a good title for the album given the recent history of the band, but also a sort of a phoenix rising. FUCKING JÄVLA FÅGEL FENIX….WE ARE BACK!!!

We are so excited about this little thing we’ve created! Can’t wait to get out there and start playing these songs and for me personally, I could not be more proud of what we have done, I really hope you’re going to enjoy it!”
