Swedish metal band The Haunted have issued a studio update as they are in the midst of recording their 8th studio album, which will be the follow up to 2011’s Unseen. The band is recording this with their revamped band line-up, featuring founding members Jonas Björler (Bass) and Jensen (Guitars), returning members Adrian Erlandsson (Drums) and Marco Aro (Vocals), and the newest member Ola Englund (Guitars).
The as-yet-untitled album will be produced by Tue Madsen (Dark Tranquillity, Sick Of It All). The album is tentatively scheduled for release late this summer.

From the band:
“Here you go, folks; picture proof of the cursed, grueling, back-breaking yet eventually immensely rewarding process of recording an album. How about Tue’s use of an empty pool for that special reverb effect!? You can’t buy that shit as a plug-in (Hey…Wait a minute…Maybe you can?). Anyway, recording might be hard, strenuous work, but it’s always relaxing to have producer wizard, and great friend, R-Tue-D-Tue on board. We love both him and his studio dog Maud.
The songs all sound great, and it seems that we’re looking at the embryo to a pretty fast album. We’re hoping you won’t mind the velocity when you pop the CD into the player with your dirty little mitts.
And yup, we’ve released the bands that’ll open for us on our Scandinavian dates. Be sure to get there on time to check them out!”
