SOILWORK Drummer Comments on New Album and Side Project

Soilwork 2007 Dirk Verbeuren, drummer for Swedish modern metal merchants SOILWORK, recently commented on his performance on the bands upcoming album The Panic Broadcast. He also revealed that he will be recording drums for Fredrik Thordendal of MESHUGGAH's second solo record to be released sometime later this year:

"Working on The Panic Broadcast was a fantastic opportunity for me to be creative. The intricacy of the new material reminds me of SCARVE, and my approach to the drums was similar in the sense that I tried to bring something a little unusual to every song. With this album, I feel like I truly found my musical path in SOILWORK. It's definitely my most technically challenging work with the band and possibly my most dynamic performance so far. I'm super stoked about what we've accomplished!

As for recording with Fredrik Thordendal: what a dream come true! Fredrik has been very supportive of my career for many years in many ways, and I respect him immensely both as a musician and songwriter. It was huge for SCARVE to be asked to open for MESHUGGAH and we've been in touch ever since. When Fredrik asked me to be a part of the second SPECIAL DEFECTS record, I just couldn't believe it! Now that I have the SOILWORK album under my belt, it's exciting to dive into a completely different challenge where my drum parts will be based on improvisation more than anything else.”

The Panic Broadcast is the first album to feature original guitarist, songwriter & producer Peter Wichers since his return to the band in 2008! Produced by Wichers and mixed by Jen Bogren (OPETH, AMON AMARTH, KATATONIA, SYMPHONY X), this is the record long time SOILWORK fans have been waiting for!

The Panic Broadcast is set to be released on July 2 (EUROPE) and July 13 (N. America) via Nuclear Blast!
