Published Jan 04, 2016Long-running prog-metal masters Voivod recently announced plans for a hefty North American tour, and it turns out there will be a new treat at the merch table. Specifically, the band have prepared a brand new EP.
Due out February 26 via Century Media, the release is called Post Society, and it features five songs from the group — including the previously vinyl-only tracks that were on split 7-inches with Napalm Death and At the Gates. There's also a cover of Hawkwind's "Silver Machine," as well as two brand new tracks.
"More songs from out in the woods!" said drummer Michel Langevin in a press release. "We hope you will enjoy this EP of good old thrash-prog-punk-metal or whatever people want to call Voivod nowadays."
Langevin added that they'll spend time leading up to the tour working on their next album in Montreal.
