Asked whether CARCASS is actively working on material for the follow-up to “Surgical Steel”, bassist/vocalist Jeff Walker tld Rock ‘N’ Load: “Not really. We’re too busy touring, so… What’s the rush? The last album only came out in 2013. We’re still touring on that. There’s still interest to plug it. This is so boring. The odd interviews that I do where people are already talking about a new album. To me, the last album, I still consider that the new album. It’s still fresh, and we’re still playing it, and it’s still ticking over sales-wise, so what’s the rush, you know? It took us, what? Seventeen years between ‘Surgical Steel’ and [1996’s] ‘Swansong’. So if there’s another album or not… I mean, there probably will be, but… I’m not gonna give you any timeframes, but if it happened, it wouldn’t be out that year, because it takes… The whole writing, recording, setting up the release just takes so long.”
