It has been a decade since Karnivool launched their album Asymmetry and naturally followers are questioning when the following one is coming. In response to vocalist Ian Kenny in an interview with Rock’n’Roll Journalist, the rationale for the delay is straightforward – everybody’s obtained their very own lives and the band simply is not engaged on new music full-time like they used to.
Kenny does point out that Karnivool has sufficient materials for both an album or two EPs at this level, and that it is only a matter of finalizing all of it. So not less than there’s that, proper?
“In 2016 right we thought, ‘cool. [Let’s] go start the next record’ and we did,” stated Kenny. “We form of hit some roads and you understand, issues modified. The studios modified. We moved away. We do not reside in the identical metropolis anymore, all of us sort of reside separate. Quick ahead to now and Karnivool solely will get collectively a handful of occasions a 12 months to put in writing music.
“It is not prefer it was ten years in the past. Ten years in the past we lived in the identical metropolis and we have been completely different folks. We did not have households – we have all obtained households now and that form of stuff. Quick ahead ten years, we solely get collectively a handful of occasions a 12 months to truly write stuff. In order that’s put an enormous delay in additional music popping out.
“We’ve got a record sitting there. I think I think we’ve got enough songs for it. It’s just a matter of finalizing and committing to the music and getting it done. I don’t know if it will be a record. Maybe an EP, maybe two EPs actually. I think everyone has this assumption that Karnivool is full time working on this record. We’re not at all.”
Thankfully it isn’t like Karnivool has been utterly silent – they have been taking part in reveals and so they launched a brand new single “All It Takes” in 2021.
