DُEATHSTARS - Announce New Album And Lineup Change2013-04-26
Swedish group Deathstars has began writing new material for their upcoming album and follow-up to Night Electric Night, and they will be entering the studio in July. However, Eric "Cat Casino" Bäckman will not be there as Deathstars have also parted ways with the guitarist "who wanted to focus on other things in life but death" if that makes sense. Deathstars will continue as a four piece for a while and are not looking for a replacement yet. The album will be the fourth full length release from the band.
Nightmare Industries states on the album: "It's a ride through the most extreme nightclubs in hell, it's got more edge, it's got a rougher side, and it's less sugar coated than our last full length album with darker more twisted melodies. It's got a devilish attitude with a stiff upper lip yet beautiful in a dark deceiving way."
Whiplasher Bernadotte had this to say: "Deathstars is an adventure for us. It's as if it is a phenomenon of its own, and our forum for destruction, glitter and darkness. We are very excited about the new material and every time we hit the studio we never know what the outcome will be, i mean we have a general idea but we're never a 100% sure how the final result will be until we're done and can sit back and listen to it."
The recordings will take place at Studio Bohus together with co-producer and technician Roberto Laghi who will co-produce the album together with Nightmare Industries.
Cat Casino released this statement about his departure: "It's been an amazing ride and I wish the band the best of luck for the future."
Skinny Disco also chimed in: "It's hard to replace Cat on a personal level so we won't even bother for now. We're still close friends with Cat and it's not in our plans to look for a new partner in crime. Right now our focus is on the recording process of the new album and after that we'll see if we continue as a 4 piece or find a replacement before the touring starts."
