After The Burial’s Trent Hafdahl On New Album Release Plans: “We’re Shooting For The Spring Time Between February And April”

During an interview with Metal Injection, After The Burial’s Trent Hafdahl was asked about the band’s upcoming album. According to him, the effort is “all mixed and mastered and ready to go” and that they are aiming to release it in “spring time between February and April.”

Hafdahl said the following:

“…It’s all done. Yeah, it’s all mixed and mastered and ready to go. We wanted to do this tour first before we went forward with it, but the whole brand new album is done. And it’ll be out next year. We’re shooting for the spring time between February and April. The release date will be established by the end of the year definitely.”

He also added the following when asked if the album will feature any contributions from the late Justin Lowe:

“…On the new record, I went back in our archive to use anything of his to keep his spirit there. There’s a couple patterns of his that I reworked. As long as we are writing music, I’ll try to throw something that he wrote in there if it fits. Sometimes that means you gotta move a snare or change the key. It means a lot to me to keep him in what we’re doing.”

After The Burial Planning Spring Release For New Album

Trent Hafdahl recently appeared on 90.3 WMSC’s “The Metal Teddy Bear Experience”, and talked a bit about After The Burial‘s new album. According to him, the group are planning to release the effort in the spring.

Hafdahl said the following:

“…I can tell you that we will be releasing a single sometime over the winter and then we are releasing it next year, sometime in the Spring. Other than that..we wrapped the mix and master up about two weeks before we started rehearsals for this tour. When we are out on the road it’s kinda hard to take care of that business just because it’s a very involving process being out here but once we get back the wheels are going to start turning, balls gonna be rolling.”

He also added the following when asked if the band’s “Rareform” 10th anniversary tour had an influence on the effort:

“…It still sounds like After The Burial but it’s a snapshot of us musically in that time in space. So no, never really went back and being like ‘oh yeah, we should write another ‘Bezerker” or anything like that. We tried that before and it just never works. You end up having a song you spend two months on and it’s track 7 that everybody skips over.

So doing that is a way thing in the past, just because we wrote those songs because we didn’t have an identity yet and it was trying to find what works for us, like as players, as musicians, as enthusiasts of metal and hip-hop and all these different types of music we listen to.

Now we have our own brand, our own identity musically. There’s still inspiration but it’s never like ‘oh hey lets go back and write a riff like this because it’s nostalgic.’ If people like it, they’re gonna like it, if they don’t, they’re not going to, you can’t force it.”

He later continued:

“…It’s still heavy as fuck. It’s a heavy ass After The Burial record. It’s still us you know? People are like, ‘is it going to sound like Dig Deep?’ Well no dude, ‘Dig Deep‘ sounds like ‘Dig Deep‘. That record was written and we did it and it sounds great. This one is a different record. It sounds sick.”

“It is it’s own thing. It’s hard to explain, man. It’s just art. You don’t want to paint the same picture 50 times. We all really enjoy it. It’s definitely a heavy, heavy one and I think my favorite solo work that I’ve done on any record, like solo guitars, guitar solos. I’m pumped, I’m really pumped.”
