King Diamond Preparing To Begin Work On New Album

It looks like King Diamond is getting ready to work on a new album. During a March 29 appearance on Eddie Trunk’s SiriusXM radio show, the singer said he will shift his focus to the effort once the upcoming “Abigail” Blu-ray/DVD is finished:

“As soon as the DVD is finished — it’ll be a matter of two or three weeks — [King Diamond guitarist Andy La Rocque] is showing up here [in Frisco, Texas] to initiate my home studio where I’m gonna do all the vocals for a brand new King Diamond studio album.”

The music currently isn’t anywhere near completion, but he says the storyline is “about 80 percent done.” He also added:

“There’s some very unique things I’m putting into it this time where you will relate to some of the sounds you hear on it, ’cause it’s sounds that you will hear on certain days in your private life You’re outdoors, or whatever, and you might hear certain sounds and you will, guaranteed, think, if you heard the album, ‘I wonder if that thing King talked about could have happened when I heard that sound here.'”

King Diamond Posts “Halloween” Live Video

King Diamond Offers Update On New Blu-Ray/DVD & New Album

King Diamond has posted a Facebook update on his upcoming releases, which you can check out below. Topics covered in the post include the upcoming “Abigail” tour DVD and plans for the next King Diamond album.


“King Diamond Blu-Ray DVD Update!

Andy La Rocque and our sound engineer Pontus Norgren, have begun work on the sound files from the shows we recorded on the US 2015 Abigail Tour. Andy said he was surprised by how good it all sounds. I have personally seen a rough cut of the song “The Possession” which was put together for us as a pre-taster by Denise Korycki who is in charge of the video project, and I can tell you it sounded and looked amazing!

Everything has taken a little longer than we initially thought it would, but we now also have footage from our 2016 European Summer Festivals and we’re reviewing that as well for inclusion in the DVD set. I can’t tell you a release date at this moment, but we’re definitely sticking our heads full time into this project now.

Once we have finished work on the DVD, it will be time for writing and recording the next brand new King Diamond studio album. 2017 will be spent mostly on writing and recording, and we will also try to fit in a few special festival shows, performing the same set as on the Abigail tour. We might even hit a few places we haven’t been in a million years.

Now you know as much as I do. 😎

Stay Heavy,
