AT THE GATES, the pioneering band of the “Gothenburg style” melodic death metal sound, have just wrapped up recording, mixing and mastering work for their much anticipated comeback studio album, At War With Reality and have now confirmed release dates of October 27th, 2014 in Europe and October 28th, 2014 in North America via Century Media Records. In the classic line-up of their latest masterpiece, Slaughter Of The Soul (1995), AT THE GATES held the recording sessions for At War With Reality with Fredrik Nordström at Studio Fredman (In Flames, Arch Enemy, Dimmu Borgir) and then proceed to mix the material with Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios (Opeth, Amon Amarth, Kreator). AT THE GATES vocalist Tomas Lindberg checked in with a report as follows: "We are very excited to finally have finished this new album. An album that we've been working on for over a year now. It's by far the most challenging record that we have made, but it's an honest album and I think that you will feel that it is faithful to the legacy of AT THE GATES. We have, through the process of creating it, been true to ourselves and our art. From hearing the first demos that Anders presented to the band last summer, through the extensive stages of songwriting, pre-production, rehearsals, recording and mixing, we now finally got the finished album in our hands. We are very happy to have managed to produce an album that we feel is truly "us". Something we can all stand behind one hundred percent. I can't wait 'til you all get to hear it!An additional video message from Jens Bogren / Fascination Street Studios can be seen here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=l0vkElvuk-c A previous message from AT THE GATES can be viewed here: youtu.be/3i_OUQPpBjE and an initial pre-production video message is to be seen here: youtu.be/uOmaN4chwJM AT THE GATES have also just announced their next international touring runs for 2015, which include visiting South Africa for the very first time in May as well as shows in Greece and Turkey in January and also Norway in February.
