It’s Truckfighters‘ universe, we’re all just living in it. The fuzz forerunner trio from Örebro already have a new EP, The Chairman, available, and they’ve backed that up with the announcement below that they’ll release a new full-length, titled Universe, in January 2014. This will be the first Truckfighters long-player since 2009’s spectacular third offering, Mania (review here), and it’s already high up on my gotta-have list for the New Year. Awesome.
The news just came down the PR wire:
BACK IN THE GAME. NEW ALBUM ”UNIVERSE” TO BE RELEASED IN JAN 24TH, 2014
It’s been almost five years since last time around but we are now delighted to announce the release of our fourth studio album, due Jan 24th, 2014.We’ve been working on this piece of art that we named ”Universe” the last year and more and are now satisfied to 100%.
We are so much looking forward to sharing our new music with you. Inspired by our touring over four continents, this album is the deepest and widest one we’ve done so far. Simply the best songs we’ve ever made. We feel confident you will like it a lot! Start the countdown, the fuzzy tones will open up a new Universe.
“Universe” will be released on Jan 24th, 2014, in Germany / Switzerland / Austria / Scandinavia & Finland, rest of the world to follow on Jan 27th / 28th onwards.
+++ PLEDGEMUSIC CAMPAIGN ON NEW ALBUM +++
Universe will come with many many special incentives – so don’t miss it!
Pre-orders of the new album can already be placed through PledgeMusic: http://www.pledgemusic.com/truckfighters
This system is a fan friendly way to purchase the longplayer, but to also having it bundled in some special deals and w/ cool stuff associated with the new album. You can buy stuff here that you can not buy in any store, not even in our webshop. It also gives a percentage of profits to a charity organization.
We decided to donate our share (after reaching the campaign’s goal / 100%) to LIFEWATCH, a Swedish foundation that supports research targeting autism and cancer.
So not only you will purchase exclusive items nowhere else available, but also will purchase this for a good cause. We thaught this is an honorable way to offer out the album and all its exclusives. And – among those things we are offering – there is also a gig at your very own place!!!
