THE (INTERNATIONAL) NOISE CONSPIRACY, the Swedish band fronted by former REFUSED screamer Dennis Lyxzen, have set "Armed Love" as the title of their much-anticipated follow-up to 2001's "A New Morning, Changing Weather".
The band are working in Los Angeles and Sweden with legendary producer Rick Rubin, bringing their life-affirming, inspiring, creative music to rock fans. A deal has been closed between Epitaph/Burning Heart and Rick Rubin's American Recordings for the rights of the "Armed Love" album. Burning Heart Records will keep the rights for Europe, while American will have the rights for the rest of the world.
"I think they're a great live band — they have incredible stage presence," commented Rubin recently. "And we're helping make an album that conveys as much as they have onstage on record, which I don't think has been done before".
"It's a great deal for a great band," said Peter Ahlqvist, managing director & A&R for Burning Heart Records, the Swedish label which previously launched successful careers for acts like THE HIVES, MILLENCOLIN, TURBONEGRO and REFUSED. "I believe the band is capable of doing a real classic album, and Rick Rubin — who produced one of my favorite albums of all time — SLAYER's "Reign In Blood" — is the perfect man to help them achieve just that."
THE (INTERNATIONAL) NOISE CONSPIRACY commented: "We are very happy working with Rick Rubin. It's an honor and a privilege to be working with the man who produced some of the greatest albums of all time. We are looking forward to a long and creative partnership with Mr. Rubin and with our collective efforts a new T(I)NC album will be released in the not too distant future. The struggle continues."
