2020 marks three years since Cannibal Corpse released their Red Before Black album, which means it’s about that time for a new one to begin forming. Cannibal Corpse has announced they’re beginning work on the new album with no further details yet divulged.
Thanks for all your support of Red Before Black and all our touring in support of the record. Time to enter the crypts and begin work on the next record. Keep supporting death metal in the new decade!
Of course, the elephant in the room about this new record is the legal situation of guitarist Pat O’Brien. O’Brien was arrested in December 2018 and charged with aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer with a deadly weapon and burglary of an occupied dwelling with assault or battery. Cannibal Corpse has since stated they stand 100% behind O’Brien and await his return. O’Brien was released from jail after his arrest and has been filled in for live by guitarist Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal, ex-Morbid Angel).
O’Brien’s legal status is currently unknown.
