A New DISMEMBER Album Is Happening


Dismember is officially working on their first new record since 2008. Dismember bassist Richard Cabeza said in an interview with RichardMetalFan that everyone in the band is working on new material individually, and that they’ll soon get together and figure it all out.

“For sure, man. It’s happening. When, I can’t tell you right now. But we have talked about writing new music. We are writing new music individually, but we haven’t started to write music together as a band. We have been so busy with playing shows the past couple of years and doing all this other stuff.

“But I think we’re getting closer and closer. Let’s see what happens next year in 2025. Maybe we’ll actually start putting some songs together. But a hundred percent, a new Dismember album will happen. No doubt, no doubt. But we have very high expectations on ourselves as a band to release a new album.”

Dismember reunited in 2019 and has been doing shows ever since. Of course with any live reunion comes the question of when new material might happen, which drummer Fred Estby elaborated on during a recent interview with Metal Rules.

“It’s not hard at all,” said Estby. “So the thing is, we have a license deal with Nuclear Blast. We have an option to do one or two more albums. Great. We can do whenever we want, which is even more perfect for us. So we can take our time and we’re going to take our time because we’re not going to release something that is half-assed. We’re going to be very critical about [it], especially since it’s been such a long time since the last album.

“And I love the Dismember album that I’m not even on that was released in 2008. It’s a great album. If you’re going to release an album now as a reunited band in two thousand and fucking twenty-three, twenty-four, you’re going to have to try to match like ever before. You cannot be shy of that. We’re going to be very critical about it and that’s going to take some time because we don’t live in the same cities like we hang out every day.”

Dismember is currently the classic ’90s lineup of Estby, vocalist Matti Kärki, guitarists Robert Sennebäck and David Blomqvist, and bassist Richard Cabeza.
