During an interview with EMP at the Bloodstock Open Air festival, Jinjer’s Eugene Abdukhanov confirmed that the band have been writing songs for their next album. The bassist says the new material is inspired by Russia’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine.
Abdukhanov said the following:
“We actually have some songs written already. Because of [Russia’s] war [in Ukraine], we had nothing else to do, and we were inspired, let’s say, by the events in a different way. When there were a lot of bombings in Kyiv and we had to hide in the shelters from the Russian bombs, Vlad [Ulasevich] wrote a lot — our drummer wrote a lot. This is what drove him, I think. As soon as the Russians withdrew from Kyiv, I wrote some songs. So we already have some songs written.”
He also added the following about release plans:
“It’s very hard to say. With the events going on, it’s very hard to plan and think about the future. So I am enjoying the moment.”
