WHITECHAPEL have finished writing a new album and plan to enter the studio this week to start production.
Speaking with Knotfest.com (video seen above), Whitechapel guitarist Alex Wade explained that while the pandemic derailed the band’s original plans, it afforded them time to work on new material:
“I definitely feel like we got kind of cut short as far as the album cycle for ‘The Valley’ goes. But we’re trying to make the best of it that we can. We had a lot of killer tours and everything lined up this year. But it is what it is, and we just kind of have to roll with the punches.
“We made the best of a bad situation, and we ended up writing another album. So we’re gonna be going into the studio this week, actually, and we’re gonna start production on that. I think, truly, if we would have ended up going on all those tours that we wouldn’t have had the time to dedicate to making the best album possible, but since we were all sitting at home on our ass, we were able to make a really killer record.”
