Currently celebrating their 35th anniversary as a band, Canadian progressive sci-fi metal innovators VOIVOD are pleased to announce a release date of 21 September 2018 for their upcoming new studio album “The Wake” via Century Media Records worldwide.
“The Wake”, the highly anticipated successor to 2013’s “Target Earth” album as well as the 2016 mini-album “Post Society”, was recorded and mixed by Francis Perron at RadicArt Recording Studio in Canada. The album‘s artwork (as seen above) was once again created by VOIVOD drummer Michel “Away” Langevin.

VOIVOD guitarist and songwriter Daniel “Chewy“ Mongrain” talks about the upcoming release: “It is with great enthusiasm and pride that we will soon share with you the fruit of two years of labour in the form of an intricate, intense and colourful journey with our new album “The Wake”, expanding the boundaries of VOIVOD’s multiverse!”

The album’s track-listing is as follows:

VOIVOD – “The Wake”:
1. Obsolete Beings
2. The End Of Dormancy
3. Orb Confusion
4. Iconspiracy
5. Spherical Perspective
6. Event Horizon
7. Always Moving
8. Sonic Mycelium

The first single from “The Wake” is expected to be released on 20 July – so look out!
