Carcass have apparently been in the studio putting the finishing touches on their first LP in over 15 years, with Colin Richardson producing it. They have yet to secure a label home for the effort, which is expected in early 2013. This indicates that they are no longer signed to Earache Records, which released all of their previous albums.
In order to promote their “new album”, Carcass are in the process of booking a number of live shows for next year, including appearances at Maryland Deathfest and Chile’s Metal Fest. The band, who reunited in 2007, last toured in 2010.
Carcass’ last studio album, Swansong, came out on Earache Records in 1996, the same year they split up.
