Soilwork Faced Challenge With New Album

(TeamRock Radio) Soilwork frontman Bjorn Strid admits the band were under pressure to come up with the goods on their latest album - but he insists the challenge was a healthy one.

The band released 10th album The Ride Majestic last month, following 2013's acclaimed double LP The Living Infinite. Strid tells The Rockpit: "I did feel pressure, and I think the rest of the guys did as well - but I think it was a healthy pressure, because we felt that we found something new.

"We found new confidence in writing The Living Infinite, that we can pull off writing a double album and that we can find other ways of expressing ourselves. So I think we felt really excited even though the pressure was there. We knew that we found something new that we could develop."

He adds: "This album is even more focused on the melancholy that we found with The Living Infinite. The extreme parts are even more extreme and the softer parts are a little bit softer - it creates a really interesting dynamic." Read more here.
