Visionary Swedish Melodeath metal masters SOILWORK are set to embark on a national tour of Australia this summer, the announcement coinciding with the release today of their tenth and triumphant studio album, ‘The Ride Majestic’.

Currently trekking through North America as part of their extensive world tour, Soilwork’s Australian club dates will include a show at The Gov on Friday, 12 February in 2016. Tickets for all shows will go on sale at 10am next Friday, September 4.

Having toured the world, released a critically acclaimed double-album, a live DVD and a five-track EP over the past two and a half years, it’s clear that Soilwork remain tireless masters of their craft. Now, they return with The Ride Majestic (out now through Nuclear Blast); another jubilant moment for a band whose body of work stretches across twenty years.

Stylistically, The Ride Majestic picks up where the band left off with their previous record, The Living Infinite (2013) – each track tempering instrumental aggression with soaring, intoxicating melodies. Lyrically the album is driven by an unshakable fixation with mortality, as vocalist Björn Strid explains: “Just about every member of the band had a death in the family while recording the album… We came up with this title to remember what we've gone through together and make it a hymn to those we've lost and celebrate their lives…”
