KING DIAMOND update on DVD and new album


Andy La Rocque and the King Diamond sound engineer Pontus Norgren, have begun work on the sound files from the shows King Diamond recorded on the US 2015 Abigail Tour. Andy said he was surprised by how good it all sounds.  Andy La Rocque stated “I have personally seen a rough cut of the song “The Possession” which was put together for us as a pre-taster by Denise Korycki who is in charge of the video project, and I can tell you it sounded and looked amazing!”

Everything has taken a little longer than the band initially thought it would, but they now also have footage from their 2016 European Summer Festivals and they’re reviewing that as well for inclusion in the DVD set. King Diamond states “I can’t tell you a release date at this moment, but we’re definitely sticking our heads full time into this project now.”

Once they have finished work on the DVD, King Diamond said that it will be time for writing and recording the next brand new King Diamond studio album. 2017 will be spent mostly on writing and recording, and they will also try to fit in a few special festival shows, performing the same set as on the Abigail tour. King Diamond added “We might even hit a few places we haven’t been in a million years.”
