Listen, I know we reported last December that Arizona-based thrash metal iconoclasts Sacred Reich would be heading into the studio this year to record their follow up to 2019’s Awakening, but that apparently didn’t happen. Bummer.
Yet even though there’s been a bit of a delay, there’s no need to fret, as they’re still planning on laying down some new music. Since 2019, the band’s been touring a whole hell of a lot and naturally, other things get in the way, but they’re really going to get started this coming spring, according to a Thanksgiving day social media post.
“Today in the US we celebrate Thanksgiving. It’s an appropriate way to celebrate the end of the Awakening touring cycle. Beginning in 2019 we’ve played 234 shows in 23 countries. It was an incredible journey that took us to new places and reunited us with many old faces. Through it all we’ve relied on the love and support of our families who carry on in our absence. We could never have done it without our crew @michael_audiotech, @skid_on_tour, @abou_raissa_mathieu_lesage, @crissta and @dirtysouthmoss along with @chrisgreentm, @ppshiver and @wvhardcore.
“Thanks to @metalbladerecords for their continued love and support. Thanks to our agents for all the great tours. A special thank you to all the killer bands we’ve shared the stage with @gwar, @toxicholocaust_official, @nightdemonmetal, @sepultura, @crowbarmusic, @artofshock, @carcass, @municipalwaste, @creepingdeathtx, @deathangelofficial and @angelusapatrida, @ironreaganofficial, @testamentofficial, @dustbolt_official, @megadeth and @kreatorofficial.
“Finally we would like to thank the fans for making it all possible. Each night on tour we take a moment to acknowledge that without the support of our fans we would not be able to continue as a band. You buy the records. You buy the tickets. You buy the merchandise. You are the reason we can continue to play music and tour. You have given us this incredible life in music and we are eternally grateful. Thank you.
“If you’ve made it this far we have a bit of news for you. We will be headed back into the studio in April to record our next record. We are super excited! Hopefully the record will be out by the end of 2024.
“Once again thank you for your love and support. On behalf of @wiley.arnett, @davemcclaindrums and @joeyradziwill I wish you peace, love and happiness. Always.”
So there ya have it. They’re working on a new album that’s sure to be as acerbic and to the point as ever. And with the 2024 presidential election happening as they work on the new album, it’s sure to have something to say, even if none of the candidates do…
