Swedish metallers STEELWING will enter the studio in August to begin recording their sophomore album for an early 2012 release via NoiseArt Records, a division of Rock The Nation.
In other news, the band has issued the following update:
“The winged assassins are gearing up for a brief but intense festival assault in this summer of evil 2011. We will do the Masters Of Rock festival, as earlier announced, and we got a last-minute booking for Metalcamp [in] Slovenia as well. These shows will be pretty exclusive as they are the first shows we’re doing this year since the ACCEPT support tour last winter. They are also the first shows featuring our new bass player, Nic Savage, and we promise that the set lists will include a couple of surprises along with the songs we already know you want to hear.”
Bassist Skürk left STEELWING in February “due to life priorities that do not include any more extensive touring.” His replacement is Nic Savage, who was described in a press release as a “blond bass thrasher and devoted U.S. metal disciple.”
