(ES) Vreid have set a March 5, 2013 release date for their new album, Welcome Farewell.
The band recently finished recording the effort at bassist Hváll's own Studio 1184 and the band have released a new studio video blog.
Bassist Hváll had this to say, "two years after we started writing new riffs, our new beast is now complete. It's been a lot of work, but we are utterly pleased with the result. 'Dark,' 'heavy' and 'Vreid' are the three keywords to describe it.
"The artwork takes us in a new direction this time, and is done by the wizard Kim Holm. His work is spectacular and has captured the music and lyrics beyond words.
"In February [announcement listed the March date above] the new album will see the light of day, and we can't wait to unleash it, and come out and play for you again." Watch the studio blog here.
