Jeff and Bill of Carcass at Nokia Theater Sept 2008 (more by Ryan Muir)

A new interview in Decibel spills the beans.... Carcass are officially back in action. The band, who reunited four years ago, have recorded new material and expects to release a new LP in 2013.

Please tell us the full recording lineup.

Jeff Walker: "Bill Steer (guitars), Jeff Walker (bass/vocals), Daniel Wilding (drums). For live we'll obviously add another guitarist--we have someone in mind but we are not interested in a 'name' player."

Why do this now over four years after the initial Carcass reunion?

"Good timing, eh? Twenty-five years we first recorded Reek of Putrefaction. The incentive was off Bill. I'd verbally expressed an interest in doing something but I needed Bill to have the desire and hunger again and that's exactly what has happened. He recalled watching Dan Wilding play on tour with us in 2008 and something about him struck a chord and he wanted to work with him. There was something about him that kind of reminded him of Ken, on a personal level as much as his playing. We've done this recording firstly for ourselves--there's no label backing even as you read this--in fact me and Bill have spent a small fortune out of our pocket to see this through--it's more of an artistic/personal statement than anything." - [Decibel]

So far Carcass has one US date in their sights... at Maryland Deathfest 2013. Will that change soon?

Holy shit they blew the doors off of Nokia. They were SO GOOD. Yes, a lot of people are dying to see Carcass. Wherever they end up playing it will sell out.

^ I remember that night well. And it was in the middle of a big rainstorm!

12:57- Yes and they have influenced numerous bands. The Nokia show was amazing. When Ken Owen appeared, it was heartbreaking.

The 2008 show in NYC was a fucking fantastic night! CARCASS, SUFFOCATION, 1349,ROTTEN SOUND and ....I forget...a Euro DM band.

I just hope they make a solid record to make up for "Swan Song".

Oh god, Carcass, please do more US shows. You guys came to Austin, TX and I had no idea until afterwards that you had gotten back together to do shows. Please come back!

You've been my favorite band since I first heard Embodiment in the late 90s (I was about 17)!
