We are happy to announce that we have signed with Napalm Reocrds for the last and final CANDLEMASS album. Cool bands like Monster Magnet and Karma to Burn are on the label and we are proud to be a part of it too!
Our farewell album will be recorded in december for a release in the spring. The album is our 11:th studio effort and we’ll do our best to make it a worthy end. CANDLEMASS hope to play the european festivals one last time, also tour and play everywhere on the planet where our faithful and fantastic fans want us to go…we will be there!!
Our career has lasted for over two decades. This year it was 25 years since “EPICUS DOOMICUS METALICUS” came out. It has been a long and bumpy ride, but we survived, and are now probably more successful than ever! We headline big festivals, and sell lots of records. But 25 years is a long time….somewhere sometime you need to slow down and stop no matter how much you are enjoying yourself. And it feels good to do it while you are still on top!!
But don’t be sad just yet all you fans of doom. CANDLEMASS won’t disappear for a while. We still have lots of gigs to play, a new great album to promote, uncharted C-mass territories to visit…especially Australia, Japan, Asia…(we would love to play there so book us please:-)! AND…we have a 30 year anniversary to look forward to also!!
So you’re not rid of us yet! Plenty of more DOOM to come!!
