AT THE GATES ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM, TO DRINK FROM THE NIGHT ITSELF OUT MAY 18 VIA CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS

March 16, 2018

 

 

Swedish melodic Death Metal pioneers At The Gates will release their much anticipated new album, To Drink From The Night Itself on May 18 via Century Media Records. 

 

Produced with Russ Russell (Napalm Death, The Haunted, Dimmu Borgir, etc.) at Parlour Studios in the UK, the album follows up 2014’s acclaimed comeback release At War With Reality and will feature conceptual artwork created by Costin Chioreanu / Twilight 13 Media, who already worked with At The Gates on At War With Reality.

At The Gates frontman Tomas Lindberg talks about the single: “So, for the first song to present to the public, we chose the title track of the album. Which is also the opening track of the record. To us, this gives a presentation of the attitude of the album: raw, hungry and desperate. It also gives an introduction to the whole concept of the record. We live through our art, and the whole album deals with the concept of art. Art as a tool either for revolution, or suppression. To drink from the night itself is just that, a metaphor for living and breathing through art. Of course the concept goes deeper than that, but this song is the heart of the concept, the fierce call to arms so to say. We are still at war, but this time we are fighting the abyss, the abyss of apathy and oppression. It is an aggressive song, but also contains a lot of the other elements of the band´s sound on this record. Melancholia, desperation and struggle. For the first video we chose to use Patric Ullaeus again, as he is good at capturing the raw energy of the band playing live. In the video you can also see glimpses of the art used for the cover, so it binds it all together nicely. Enjoy.” 

 

At The Gates’ latest album, At War With Reality, released in late 2014 via Century Media Records, marked a first new studio album effort in 19 years for At The Gates and managed to enter the charts in several countries upon release.
