Sweden’s Amaranthe have announced that they are to release a new album this Autumn.

Titled Massive Addictive, the record will be released via Spinefarm Records on the 21st of October.

“We have lived and breathed this album every hour and every day the last year, and to know that this music is about to reach everyone’s ears is beyond exciting,” guitarist Olaf Mörck enthuses about the forthcoming release. “Following the first leg of The Nexus World Tour, we sat down and agreed that we wanted the next album to be really fresh, new and even to raise a few eyebrows, all while retaining our signature sound.”

Massive Addictive is in every way that huge leap forward we wanted to achieve and the album definitely contains our strongest song writing to date. The press often asks us to ‘describe the album with three words’; this time, the answer is simple – it’s MASSIVE, it’s ADDICTIVE, and most importantly, it’s AMARANTHE!”

The album was recorded at Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark with the producer/engineer Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Epica) at the helm.

The tracklisting for Massive Addictive is as follows:

Amaranthe Massive Addictive1. “Dynamite”
2. “Drop Dead Cynical”
3. “Trinity”
4. “Massive Addictive”
5. “Digital World”

7. “Unreal”
8. “Over and Done”
9. “Danger Zone”
10. “Skyline”
