Vildhjarta have finally announced their long-awaited sophomore album. Along with the release info for måsstaden under vatten, the Swedish djent act have revealed two new songs — “kaos2” and “toxin.”

Vildhjarta’s new album is the band’s first in 10 years, following the breakthrough Måsstaden in 2011. måsstaden under vatten was originally called Kaos 2 when the record was announced in late 2019, but its release was delayed. The single “Den Helige Anden” gave fans their first taste of the new Vildhjarta record, which features a staggering 17 tracks.

Addressing the long span of time between studio albums, Vildhjarta simply comment, “Art happens when art happens.”

Take a listen to both “kaos2” and “toxin” below once they go live at 12N ET.
