Recording? Done. Mixing? Done. Mastering? Done. At The Gates‘ first album after nearly twenty years is completed. At War With Reality now has a confirmed release date of October 27th, 2014 via Century Media Records.
At The Gates vocalist Tomas Lindberg had the following to say about the album:
We are very excited to finally have finished this new album. An album that we’ve been working on for over a year now. It’s by far the most challenging record that we have made, but it’s an honest album and I think that you will feel that it is faithful to the legacy of At The Gates.
We have, through the process of creating it, been true to ourselves and our art. From hearing the first demos that Anders presented to the band last summer, through the extensive stages of songwriting, pre-production, rehearsals, recording and mixing, we now finally got the finished album in our hands.
We are very happy to have managed to produce an album that we feel is truly ‘us’. Something we can all stand behind one hundred percent. I can’t wait ’til you all get to hear it!
