The deathcore five piece band Whitechapel have confirmed they’ve written their eighth record and the follow up to their 2019 effort, ‘The Valley’ and will begin recording this week.
Alex Wade (Guitar) confirmed the news during an interview with Beez for Knotfest.com where he talked about how the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic gave them the chance to write the record despite it cutting the cycle for ‘The Valley’ short.
An excerpt from the interview can be read below.
“I definitely feel like we got kind of cut short as far as the album cycle for ‘The Valley’ goes. But we’re trying to make the best of it that we can. We had a lot of killer tours and everything lined up this year. But it is what it is, and we just kind of have to roll with the punches.
We made the best of a bad situation, and we ended up writing another album. So we’re gonna be going into the studio this week, actually, and we’re gonna start production on that. I think, truly, if we would have ended up going on all those tours that we wouldn’t have had the time to dedicate to making the best album possible, but since we were all sitting at home on our ass, we were able to make a really killer record.”
More news on Whitechapel’s upcoming record will be confirmed as they develop.
