Artillery return to studio this summer to record new album
Danish thrash battalion, Artillery, have just undertaken their United Legions Tour 2015 of the USA. They will embark upon their first ever tour of China commencing in Beijing on 30th April and concluding in Tangshan on 10th May. Visit https://www.facebook.com/ARTILLERY.DK for a full listing of dates.
Guitarist Michael Stützer commented: “Artillery are proud to return for our first headlining tour in the USA and can’t wait to go to China for the first time! We are looking forward to playing songs from our latest album, ‘Legions’, together with old classic songs like ‘Terror Squad’ and ‘Khomaniac!’ Join The Legions!”
Artillery was forged in the Copenhagen suburb of Taastrup, Denmark in 1982 by Michael and Morten Stützer. Successfully fusing abrasive brutality, precision and strong melodies, with the bracing guitar leads of the Stützer-brothers serving as highlights, Artillery stands among Europe’s oldest and most important exponents of thrash metal.
On 2nd August, Artillery will return to Medley Studios with producer Søren Andersen to begin recording the follow-up to 2013’s critically-lauded “Legions“. Some working song titles include “Cosmic Brain“, “Deity Machine” and “Sin Of Innocence“. The as-yet-untitled long player will see release via Metal Blade Records in late 2015. Further info to be announced soon. In the meantime, check out music and videos from “Legions” now at metalblade.com/artillery.
