Has it really been four years since Napalm Death released Apex Predator – Easy Meat? Time flies when you leave off on a great record and have a killer back catalogue.
That being said, Napalm Death is absolutely planning on dropping a new one this year, according to frontman Barney Greenway. Greenway also makes it clear that playing live is top priority right now, which makes sense because that's likely where the majority of their paychecks come from.
"It will definitely be . It could be any time [in 2019], just because we've been away so much touring. We did plan to have it [in 2018], but it hasn't worked out that way, because you kind of need to be at home for a while, and we haven't really been. But it doesn't matter, because people still want us to go and play, so the album can wait. It's not essential right now. Of course, we'd love to have it now, but if it doesn't work out that way, then that's the way it goes."
Now the real question – what the hell is new Napalm Death going to sound like?
