VOIVOD Announce new album “The Wake” and European tour!

Submitted by on June 16, 2018 – 8:53 am 5 Comments


Canadian progressive sci-fi metal innovators VOIVOD are not only celebrating their 35th band-anniversary, but have also just wrapped up studio-work for their upcoming new studio album entitled “The Wake”. Expected for a late September worldwide release via Century Media Records, “The Wake” is the highly anticipated successor to 2013’s “Target Earth” album and the 2016 mini-album “Post Society”.

VOIVOD drummer Michel “Away” Langevin checked in with the following comment:

“We are thrilled to let you know that our new album, “The Wake”, is completed! The music is like a futuristic prog thrash metal trek with many twists and turns, and the story involves the usual Voivodian topics: disasters, chaos, conflicts, strange plots and alternate consciousness. We are excited with the result and can’t wait to get the material out to you this fall!

Also, try to catch us when we tour Europe in September and October. It will be a great opportunity for the band to test some songs from our upcoming album.”

Here is a list of the comprehensive European run, which will feature the following rotating support acts: Maggot Heart (from 7th until 16th Sept), Nightrage (from 18th until 26th Sept) and Bio-Cancer (from 28th Sept until 20th Oct):

    I’m 35 yrs. older, not necessarily wiser, but will never grow weary of your musical innovations

  • Léon Désaulniers says:

    Salut Voïvod,
    je compte bien aller vous entendre à Lévis ce mois d’août. Je remarque ici que la date affichée est le 8 août, alors que sur le site du Festivent, c’est pour le 4! Je le souligne pour qu’il ne puisse y avoir de conflit, je ne voudrais pas manquer ça!
    Je suis un vétéran de la III ième Guerre Mondiale. J’ai dû me ré équiper de munitions récemment: celles de calibre War and Pain jusqu’à Outer Limit; Target fera partie de mon arsenal bientôt, et j’espère pouvoir me munir de The Wake à ce show.
    Si d’aventure vous faite une scéance de signature ou quelque chose du genre, j’essaierai d’aller vous serrer la pince.
    Mes plus chaleureuses salutations à Rocky, qui semble arborer assez souvent des t-shirt du 2 ième meilleur groupe (après Voïvod) du Multivers : Genetic Error.
    Quoiqu’il en soit, une bonne continuation et tout le succès que vous méritez encore!

  • Hey fellas!

    Super stoked about the new album! I will be in Montreal from November 1 through November 6, 2018 for my honeymoon. Any chance you all might be playing a show near that area during that span? I’d love to see you play in Canada! Thanks!

  • Gunther Bärschneider says:

    Hello friends, why do not you play in Berlin this year?

  • Mats Holmgren says:

    Hi guys!
    This is really good news man, finally a new album by the mighty Voivod, and you’ll top that by visiting Sweden and Stockholm this fall, again, wow wow wow, say no more
