Taken from the Gathering Myspace bulletin:

Date: Dec 20, 2008 2:00 PM
Subject: The Gathering strikes back: new album <i>The West Pole</i>
Body: Dear all,

The waiting is over. Well ... almost!

We are very happy and proud to announce the release of our 9th studio album
in april 2009! The album will be called The West Pole. You probably are curious who is singing on our new record. We have found a new [female] vocalist, and we will have two [also female] guest singers on The West Pole.


We can imagine people are anxious to hear some of our new music. However, we will not make it to put new songs online this year. The reason is that some of our [many] guest musicians still need to be recorded and we prefer to present only complete version of the songs. As soon as we have mixed and mastered the album we will put some tracks on the web and of couse you will be informed with all possible details.
We believe, after hearing the new songs, you will agree the waiting was worthwhile!

We are very, very proud and we feel we made something really special. The album is produced by René Rutten, it will contain 9 tracks and will be released on our own imprint Psychonaut Records. It will be a very extravert, rock orientated, alive album. Typically the Gathering, but with many new elements. This time it's absolutely guitardriven. For sure.


The West Pole will be available via our own webshop one month before the actual release date. Like our DVD A Noise Severe we will make special packages. More news will follow soon.


We wish you a very nice Christmas and a superb New Year!

Cheers,
On behalf of the Gathering
Hans Rutten

Good news. Let's see if we can find (familiar) names for the vocalists...

Hummm...
Great news...
And after the deception with the weak album by Agua de Annique... I hope that the remaining guys of TG came with a phenomenal album (in the vein of 'HtMaP'), and have found a great "(female) vocalist", that honor the glorious past of the band.

I keep forgetting about how great this band was. Hopefully they'll be able to maintain their level of quality.

Aneeke was always going to be a hard act to follow, lets hope her replacement does the band justice.

^Sounds good. The West Pole title is particulary good. Hard to recognise the band though, without that (other) female.

Just finished listening to the stream, I rather like this album and the new singer (whats her name BTW?), will definitely be getting it.

Just listen right now the new album. I like it, I just think it's not my choice for 'a sound' to hear, but definitely a good album, and new singer Silje Wergeland have a relly lovely voice.
