After more than 30 years of shaping progressive metal history, Evergrey rises again, announcing the release of their fourteenth studio album, “Theories of Emptiness”, set for release on June 7, 2024, via Napalm Records.

This new chapter kicks off with the new single “Falling From the Sun”, featuring heavy riffs combined with catchy choruses and hard-hitting melancholic lyrics, and acting as a sequel to “Ominous” – cut from their worldwide chart-topping latest album, “A Heartless Portrait (The Orphean Testament)”.

“‘Falling From the Sun’ is an explosive song that represents everything we are about, not only for this album but also brings the energy that you would expect from a great new Evergrey song. It has the riff, it has the pounding drums, the bombast, and an unforgettable hook that we are very proud to have written. Now we just want you to be devoured by the splendor of the full album as soon as possible, but let’s start with ‘Falling From the Sun’; we believe it will last you a lifetime and easily hold you over until it is time for the next single and video. We spent what feels like a Hollywood budget on the pyrotechnics used in this video as we felt that represented everything we felt the most – having those fireworks rain down on us made us feel like real rockstars for a while and the song itself felt like a rockstar on its own! We can’t wait to see what you think and feel when you see this!” the band comments.

Guided by unmistakable founder, singer, and guitarist Tom S. EnglundEvergrey has maintained a remarkable consistency, hitting the biggest festivals worldwide, such as Wacken Open Air, Bloodstock, Summer Breeze, and Graspop, and throughout thirteen studio albums. Each of these – blending dark, emotive themes with complex progressive elements and melodic heavy metal – has earned them a reputation as pioneers of the genre and secured their timeless mark on metal.

“Theories of Emptiness” was produced by Tom S. Englund and Jonas Ekdahl, and was mixed by Adam “Nolly” Getgood (ex-Periphery), who worked closely with the band from the start – bringing out the vividness of the album’s overall sonic profile. Rounding out the album’s production, mastering was helmed by Thomas “Plec” Johansson (Soilwork, The Night Flight Orchestra, Onslaught, The Gems, Eleine, and many more).

“For us, progression is paramount”, states Tom S. Englund when discussing the eleven-track effort. “We’re dedicated to ensuring that our music remains innovative and avoids stagnation. With each album, we strive to introduce something new — a unique flavor, a different key or chord, fresh voices in our writing, or innovative production techniques.

“Our new album is soon to be yours! We can’t wait for that to happen, there are so many new and refreshing elements on it as well as respect paid to every part of our past. We have just refined what we always have done and tried to make it as contemporary as we possibly could to please ourselves and our sonic expectations. With the presence of Adam ”Nolly” Getgood, we felt fired up, hungry, and eager to do our utmost to ensure that we would write the best songs we possibly could – I really feel we have achieved that. Sound quality wise we feel that it is on par with the best the world has to offer today. It is a brave statement that I will stand behind for the rest of my life. Taking Evergrey into a new cycle feels just as when I did it the first time. We are more motivated than ever, and with a lot of touring to be announced very soon, we cannot wait to come and play this new music for you,” he adds.

“Finally, we need to mention that we couldn’t be prouder to announce our guest vocalist for this album. Jonas Renkse has graced Katatonia’s music with his unique atmosphere for decades. Now we in the band and the fans of Evergrey get to experience the same and we couldn’t be more excited! You might even get to hear Jonas growl for maybe the first time in many years…”
