VON AM 22/07/2020

Meshuggah sollten diesen Sommer eigentlich einige Festival ins Europa bespielen. Aus Gründen, auf die wir nicht weiter eingehen müssen, konnten diese Auftritte natürlich nicht stattfinden.

As previously communicated our intent was to keep our commitment to all festivals and shows planned for summer 2020, that couldn't take place due to the Covid-19 pandemic, by re-confirming them for the same dates in summer 2021. Full Force Festival is one of these festivals that has already been re-confirmed and re-announced. However, after seeing some of the other festivals move to completely different weekends in 2021, we eventually found it impossible to go ahead with the tour next summer due to logistical reasons. Which also means that Meshuggah have to cancel their planned appearance at Full Force 2021. Another influential part of the decision to not tour in summer 2021 is that Covid-19 restrictions have also affected Meshuggah's progress with a new studio album, to a point where we now see the need to keep summer 2021 clear to put finishing touches to the album. Meshuggah and their management would like to apologize to all fans and promoters being affected by this. Some good news is to be found in here though: there is a new Meshuggah album coming… 📸 Edvard Hansson @kinglevel

Fans durften sich nun aber bereits auf 2021 freuen, denn die Band aus Schweden war u.a. bereits für das Full Force Festival bestätigt worden. Nun canceln sie jedoch alle anstehenden Termine für den kommenden Sommer.

Meshuggah sagen Festivals 2021 ab, um an neuem Album zu arbeiten

Grund dafür sind Überschneidungen diverser Festivals, die nachgeholt werden. Es sei für die Band logistisch nicht möglich, alle Auftritte zu bespielen und sagen sie deshalb alle ab.

Weiterhin habe der Arbeitsprozess am neuen Album während der Coronakrise gelitten. Wegen des Lockdowns konnten die Bandmitglieder nicht weiter an der Platte feilen. Sie brauchen deshalb die Sommermonate 2021, um den neuen Longplayer fertigzustellen.

Schade, aber die Aussicht auf neue Musik ist immerhin ein kleines Trostpflaster.

Das bevorstehende Studioalbum markiert den nunmehr neunten Longplayer von Meshuggah. Zuletzt brachte die Kombo um Frontmann Jens Kidman 2016 ihre Platte „The Violent Sleep of Reason“ auf den Markt.

Das Debütwerk „Contradictions Collapse“ erschien anno 1991.
