Legendary Polish black metallers Behemoth have announced they have pushed back the release of their upcoming album.
The new record, titled The Satanist will now be released in early 2014 rather than the original release date of this fall. However the band have also announced the release of the album will be accompanied by extensive headlining tours in support of the album, dates of which will be revealed soon. Frontman Nergal has also revealed how the band came up with the title of The Satanist:
“It took us over two decades to come up with a title that…says it all. While our new songs artistically take surprisingly adventurous directions, our message stands steadfast – Proud and Radical. ‘The Satanist’ stands for undying yearning for liberation and love for freedom in all aspects of life. Considering all our life experiences that often took dramatic curves I couldn’t think of more appropriate and fitting statement of who and where we are now.”
