So big things are happening in the Onslaught camp. The band is gearing up for their first ever North American tour this Spring, which is obviously going to be something really special for not only the band but for a lot of fans who have been waiting for 30 years to see Onslaught play live.
As if that wasn’t big enough the band is also writing a brand new album which will be the follow up to their latest thrasherpiece “Sounds of Violence” Baz Anderson over at Metal Storm recently conducted an interview with Nige Rockett of Onslaught and he had this to say:
Q: So obviously the North American tour has your attention at the moment, but have you thought about when you might want to write some new songs for the next album? Might that be something for the second half of the year?
A: “We’re well ahead of the game on the writing front. The label said they want a new Onslaught album in 2013 regardless, we were told ‘that to keep the momentum up that we have built with Sounds Of Violence we must release early next year’… so we started studio work as soon as we got back from the South American tour last November… Its going real well right now and we have half the album already written, we’re looking to be recording very late this year for an April 2013 release.”
This is some really exciting news. I’ve loved the last two Onslaughtalbums and I cannot wait to hear what the band has in store for us next.
