In 2014, Entombed-founding member L-G Petrov returned Back To The front with the band’s revitalized yet still lethal new incarnation ENTOMBED A.D., which also consists of Nico Elgstrand (guitar), Victor Brandt (bass), and Olle Dahlstedt (drums). Just 18 months later, fans worldwide can expect the follow-up record, entitled Dead Dawn, set for international release via Century Media Records on February 26th, 2016.

A first single will be released in mid-December and shortly before the album’s release, the ENTOMBED A.D. commando will present the new material alongside classic tracks on tour, Bassist Victor Brandt comments:

“We are really looking forward to get out of the studio and hit the road with our friends in Behemoth, Abbath, and Inquisition. It’s a really cool package, every band is bringing their A game and I can promise you that you do not want to miss this. There’s gonna be a few surprises on the setlist and we’re hitting the stage as a five-piece. See you in the pit and/or at the bar! Cheers!”

Guitarist and co-producer Nico Elgstrand reveals the following regarding the recordings of Dead Dawn: “After festering an eon inside the belly of the beast, it finally disposed of us. I’m not gonna tell you out of which orifice we were spawned, but I will tell you it was demeaning in the true sense of the word. From this horrible experience came the urge to express ourselves through sound and so we did. Now, it’s done and we can only look proudly back on what we have created: a damn sinister sounding record. You might not be able to comprehend it, but you won’t be able to deny it either!”

Watch out for a deadly dawn of metal – 2016 is going to be heavy!
