Southern California-based metal monsters Winds of Plague are currently busy writing their new album. They are certainly prolific, since they released 'Against the World' last April. The band plans to hit the studio before summer, which is sneaking up on us and will be here before you know it.

The new album will be the Winds of Plague's fifth overall and fourth for longtime label Century Media, which issued 'Against the World,' as well as 'The Great Stone War' in 2009 and 'Decimate the Weak' in 2008. The band seems to follow a pattern of releasing new albums every two years or just under that mark. They certainly like to keep fans satiated with new music.

The group issued a short and sweet post on its official Facebook page, alerting everyone about the progress and status.

The text of the post is as follows:

"Writing our new record as we speak! Recording before Summer Time. Looking forward to sharing the new stuff with you!"

There is no confirmed release date for the upcoming, as-yet untitled record. Even so, we're looking forward to it and cannot wait to hear what WoP come up with.
