Het jaar 2019 lijkt nu al goed te beginnen met de aankondiging van Evergrey dat ze het 11e studioalbum The Atlantic op 25 zal uitbrengen. Het is het vervolg op het uitstekende album The Storm Within dat in diverse landen hoog in de charts belandde. Ook voor dit album hebben de Zweden hulp gehad van Jacob Hansen. 

Zanger Tom S. Englund zegt over het nieuwe album:

“Guys! This is album number 11!
Isn’t that just sick?! It’s also the 3rd album of a concept that might have reached its destination or at least one conclusion. It might also have been something that some of you saw coming or anticipated?
We’ve fought through giant private obstacles as well as an extremely complicated break-in at our Headquarters studio to bring this album to you. So at the same time as it’s certainly not been painless or at all easy, it’s been rewarding in new ways and our creativity has been painted in colors of honesty and sincerity.
This is our heaviest, darkest, and perhaps also our most diverse album to date. It’s everything we wanted to compose and the written words come straight from a place of transparency and never before experienced lucidity. Finally, as of yesterday, we’ve reached new shores. We can’t wait for you to share this journey with us and dive into our worlds, our depths, and the waters of The Atlantic!”

Het album is nu al reeds vooruit te bestellen via het label AFM Records  https://shop.afm-records.de/evergrey/
