HAMMERFALL is back after the one year break the band decided to take, and has announced the new album, (r)Evolution that will be released on August 29.


With the new album (r)Evolution, Hammerfall takes things back to the roots. The band once again worked with producer Fredrik Nordström (Dream Evil), who helmed HAMMERFALL's two early releases Glory To The Brave and Legacy Of Kings. All instruments were tracked in March and April at Oscar Dronjak's studio, Castle Black Studios. Joacim Cans then went to the United States for vocal recordings, once again working with James Michael, who previously collaborated with HAMMERFALL on their latest album Infected. (r)Evolution was mixed and mastered at Studio Fredman.

The first single from (r)Evolution", Bushido, will be released on July 18 digitally as well as on vinyl.
