Fleshgod Apocalypse Premiere “Sugar” Music Video, Reveal Details For New Album “Veleno”

Fleshgod Apocalypse have premiered a new video for their new song “Sugar.” This track is from the band’s new album “Veleno,” which will be released on May 24.

Francesco Paoli said the following about the album:

“Today is the day. A first taste of our new album, Veleno, is finally available for you all. No words can describe how excited we are and how long we waited for this moment. What you see is the harvest of three years of sweat, revolutions, intense emotions and extreme challenges. We proved ourselves to be stronger than ever, despising compromises, setting the bar higher no matter what. The album is massive to say the least. Every song is a unique piece, literally alive and breathing. Can’t wait for you guys to hear the rest…”

He also added the following about the video:

“I met Giovanni Bucci a couple of years ago, while collaborating on his own band Oddko. We soon became good friends, so we started talking about having him as director for Fleshgod’s new videos. He is a true visionary, with amazing directing and production skills. He’s been making music videos for bands like Korn, and he also has a shining career in the movie industry.

We all agreed that he would’ve been the key to a huge step forward for us, visually and artistically, especially on a video like this, which was also extremely complex to produce and shoot. The result is on your screen now, and it’s better than any description. Just hit the play button and enjoy.”

Fleshgod Apocalypse Begin Recording New Album

Fleshgod Apocalypse have officially started the recording process for their new album. The effort is expected to be released in spring 2019. Francesco Paoli shared the below update on Instagram:

View this post on Instagram

***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT*** And… here we are are, hitting the studio again! Prepare yourselves for something HUGE. A few words from our frontman Francesco Paoli: “It’s official, we’re finally back in the studio and it feels absolutely great! This past year marked a new era for the band, so we felt the need to look back at our Death Metal roots and, at the same time, to push ourselves beyond our limits, reaching a wider level of variety and influences within the songs. We wanted this album to be fierce but also organic and unpredictable, as if it had a life on its own. That’s why we decided to involve several guest musicians, a full classical string section and even a choir! "We’re also incredibly excited to work with legendary producer Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT, DESTRUCTION, ABORTED, EPICA) for the first time. He’s the man behind so many amazing metal records and definitely one of our favorite producers at the moment. On my side, being back as the frontman also means this is my last chance to record drums on a FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE record and this awareness actually inspired me so much while writing the parts. I really think this album will be a true landmark for me, as a drummer." The Apocalypse is set for Spring 2019. #fleshgodapocalypse #newrecord #newalbum #2019 #spring #studiotime #studio #recording #deathmetal #symphonicmetal #classicalmusic #neoclassical #technicaldeathmetal #tracking #francescopaoli #nuclearblastrecords #release #untitled

Fleshgod Apocalypse Reschedule Live DVD Shoot

Fleshgod Apocalypse have rescheduled their planned live DVD shoot. It will now take place during a free show at the Afterlife Live Club in Perugia, Italy on September 22. Francesco Paoli said the following about that:

“Sadly, after being seriously robbed in Gothenburg a few weeks ago, we were forced to postpone our show at the Afterlife Live Club in Perugia by a few months. The new date is set for September 22nd, with free entrance. As you know, the show will be recorded for our first live DVD. It will be a unique and unrepeatable experience, featuring many guests, a real string quintet and more surprises so…don’t miss it! Thanks so much for the huge support you’ve been showing us!”

Fleshgod Apocalypse Cancel Remaining European Dates After Thieves Steal Their Live Rig And More

Fleshgod Apocalypse have cancelled their remaining European dates after theives stole their full live rig, stage props, instruments and more. The band posted the below statement and video:

“Hello friends, we’re sorry to inform you that we’ll not be able to make it for the last four shows of this tour: Copenhagen, Hamburg, Brasov and Mannheim.

Last night some miserable pieces of shit broke into our van and stole our full live rig, production tools and stage props, drums gear, our signature custom-made guitars and bass (by Rufini Guitars), merchandise and various spare parts. Please let us know if you spot one of those turds trying to resell our stuff online.
Check out these pics:


If you want to help, you can give us a hand by buying some merchandise from our store (shop.fleshgodapocalypse.com).

This is a tough day for us, but we’re stubborn like a bull and we’ll keep working harder than before, which is the only way we know to overcome adversities.
Old-school we are, old-school we’ll die.

Please spread the word and thanks so much for your support!”

Fleshgod Apocalypse Drummer Pukes Mid-Song, Keeps Playing

Fleshgod Apocalypse drummer David Folchitto wasn’t feeling too well during the band’s October 27 performance at Metal Alliance Fest in Bogota, Colombia, and ended up puking like crazy mid-song. Despite his sickness, he managed to hold himself together and kept playing.

The band commented:

“***WARNING: Graphic content!***

Many people keep asking us about the evolution of music industry nowadays. Well, here’s our point:
Some bands proudly show off their achievements on Patreon or Indiegogo, to get the gain without the pain, or act like attention whores, thinking that a bunch of likes will make them real bands.

On our side, we think that breaking your ass on the road and prove yourself on stage is still the most respectable way to grow, especially in the eyes of your fans.

Two days ago in Bogotá our drummer David was feeling really sick and, honestly, we weren’t sure whether to cancel or not.

But there was no way to dissuade him. The motherfucker wanted to play at all costs! So we went on stage and, despite the sickness, he played a terrific show until the last two songs. Then, all of a sudden, it became like a scene out of “The Exorcist” (just watch the video below). And even then… he DIDN’T STOP PLAYING!

That’s what we call commitment, pure dedication. Also kudos to Krimh and our stage hand Giannis for helping David during those… disgusting moments!

Please, don’t bullshit us with your stories about how difficult music industry is, how stressful tours are or how hard being a musician in your country is. Italy is one of the least ‘generous’ countries to musicians and artists. We did our first US tour driving a car ourselves for thirty gigs, holding the equipment on our legs, with no sleep and risking our own lives. As well as many other bands have always done.

Everything we have now comes from sweat and sacrifice, honesty and commitment, no whining or begging involved.

We want to thank our friends all over the world, our management, our label for the support and respect they’ve been showing us throughout our career.
