Týr just lost their drummer, right before the band were to hit the studio to track their next LP. So, if you’re the rest of Týr, what do you do?
Hire Nile’s drummer.
Týr are currently recording their new album with producer Jacob Hansen at his studios in Denmark, and for drum tracking on this album, they’ve enlisted the services of George Kollias.
“I hope you are ALL ready for a crushing new album from Týr,” says George.
“I had the pleasure to record the drums on the new album, we had an absolutely great time in the studio and I gotta tell you, the material is super strong and catchy, I’m 100% sure you will all love this new album!! Big thanks to Heri, Terji and Gunnar for the opportunity and to Jacob Hansen for his incredible work with the recordings!”
Says the band: “It was a pleasure to have George in studio. He’s an amazing drummer and he certainly made an impact on this album. We’re very excited to release this album.”
In addition, vocalist Heri Joensen and Liv Kristine from Leaves Eyes will share a special duet on the disc.
“I am very happy to announce that I will be joining Týr for the duet ‘The Lay of Our Love,’ on their up-coming album (title still to be revealed), which is set to be released this Fall,” writes Liv.
“Heri already joined Leaves’ Eyes at our headliner show in Wacken Open Air 2012. This was an absolute highlight during our live performance, moreover, I really like his voice and I am grateful for the invitation. A superb track, with inspiring melodies and lyrics, proving the authenticity of Týr.”
