Watain announce formats for upcoming album The Wild Hunt

Taking things to the next step – whatever the costs are. This has always been Watain’s goal from day one and this has never been truer than with The Wild Hunt, their fifth full-length album coming out 19th August in Europe and 20th August in North America through the band’s own label His Master’s Noise and Century Media Records.

It would be easy to call this the most important album of their career but then again, all their albums are. Yet resting on their laurels never was an option and so Watain decided to go into seclusion for over six months to compose their new album, followed by four long and excruciating months in four different studios to record this beast. With mixing duties handled by the faithful Tore Stjerna at the famous Necromorbus studio in Alvik (Sweden), The Wild Hunt marks another gigantic achievement and most importantly once again ups the ante compared to Watain’s extremely well received previous releases.

The Wild Hunt will be released worldwide in the following formats:
