According to the U.K.'s Terrorizer magazine, long-running Oakland, California-based industrial/alternative/metal pioneers Neurosis have set "Given To The Rising" as the title of their new album, tentatively due in May. The band began recording the effort late last month at Electrical Audio studio in Chicago with producer Steve Albini. "[We are] forging some strange, noisy psychedelic territory that is pretty disturbing," guitarist and singer Steve Von Till recently told MTV.com.
Neurosis has been confirmed for Hovefestivalen, a brand new five-day festival set to take place June 25-29 on the island of Tromy, just outside the city of Arendal, in Norway. Also scheduled to appear are Slayer, Mastodon and Hatebreed, among others.
