Actually, I have a Zoom call today with Tommy [Karevik] and Oliver [Palotai]. We’re gonna be discussing that very fact. ‘Cause we have to focus on 12, 13 songs. So, yeah, we have more material than ever. Some really cool stuff. I think a lot of what fans expect, but also a lot of cool new surprises.”

He continued:

“Having Tommy now as one of the songwriters has been killer; he’s coming out with really cool stuff. And then, of course, Oliver and myself, and having Alex [Landenburg] now as our drummer; he’s got a lot of cool ideas. What a cool guy Alex is. So, yeah, it’s gonna be exciting. We’re slowly putting all the parts together. We’re planning like things are gonna happen middle of next year. Let’s hope that happens. If not, at least we’ll be ready.”
