Weirdo prog-thrash titans Voivod join the melee of early 2022 releases with the upcoming Synchro Anarchy, which will be released on February 11 via Century Media. New Voivod is always a thrill, and yet there is no music from the album yet.
Voivod earlier this year exceeded a Kickstarter goal for We Are Connected, a documentary about the band, and they were scheduled to tour Europe this fall alongside Exciter and Vio-Lence — a tour that would have ended today, in fact — it never occurred. It is sometimes difficult to tell.
Closing in on 40 eventful years of existence, VOIVOD are returning with their 15th studio album, reaffirming they are one of the most fervently creative bands in the universe. Synchro Anarchy follows 2018’s highly praised and Juno Award winning The Wake album, as well as 2020’s stellar Lost Machine – Live release. The new album was produced by Francis Perron at RadicArt Studio and features cover artwork created by VOIVOD’s Michel “Away” Langevin.
