Last year, MESHUGGAH drummer Tomas Haake said that fans shouldn’t expect to see a new studio album from the band before “2020 at the earliest.”

The Swedish group’s last disc, “The Violent Sleep Of Reason”, came out in 2016 and resulted in a “Best Metal Performance” Grammy nomination for the song “Clockworks”.

“The Violent Sleep Of Reason” was produced by the band and was engineered by Tue Madsen of Puk Studios in Kaerby, Denmark.
