Earlier this week we reported that Nachtmystium have perhaps called it quits, as evidenced by their “somewhat of a hiatus” and the disappearance of their Facebook page. As it turns out, we were all a bit trigger-happy with the news. Nachtmystium haven’t actually broken up, and in fact have an album planned for this year.
“Apparently, some metal news sites have reported today that NACHTMYSTIUM has either ‘broken up’ or is on ‘indefinite hiatus’. Neither of these things are true. The band has gone through some personnel changes in the last few months and I’ve made the decision to cancel all of our summer tour / festival plans while the band regroups. Instead of touring, we will be writing and recording our next full-length album in the coming months, to be released on Century Media worldwide sometime in late 2013. Also, we have pulled our Facebook page offline to revise and update it (giving it a full overhaul with new photos from the past and the present, scans of interviews from magazines throughout the band’s 13 years of existence, etc.) … For the last time and for the record, NACHTMYSTIUM has NOT disbanded and is only on a hiatus in regards to playing shows.“
So, yeah. Oops! Can’t always get em right! Can’t blame us though. Direct your attention to the Captain Hindsight meme above.
This is great news though! New Nachtmystium is in the works, so there’s something to look forward to! We’ll offer more info (hopefully correct next time) when it comes in.
