Well, that was fast. We reported that Ukranian metal group Jinjer had started working on a new album at the end of May, and now they have already finished recording it.

The news came from bassist Eugene Abdiukhanov this past weekend at Download Festival in the U.K. "The recording is done. Just the day before yesterday, Tatiana [Shmailyuk] recorded vocals for the last song. And now all the instruments, all lines, everything is recorded. So it's all about mixing and mastering," he told Metal Wani.

Guess we'll see a fall release after all!

Jinjer already released an EP titled Micro in January, but Abdiukhanov deems it "wrong" to refer to the EP as a follow-up to their 2016 full-length album King of Everything. 

"And this record, which is going to be out this year, this is a sort of successor to Micro. This is something similar, but at the same time different. There is a certain thread which keeps going from Micro to the upcoming album, something which connects these two," the bassist continues. Watch the full interview below.

Jinjer are returning to the U.S. this fall for a headlining tour, in which they had to upgrade several of the venues to accommodate the overwhelming demand. See the dates below.
