New MESHUGGAH Album Title & Release Date Confirmed!

We knew Meshuggah was releasing a new album this year, we just didn’t know when… until 
Editors note, the new issue of Revolver Magazine has an ad for the next Meshuggah album which proudly declares the album will be called The Violent Sleep of Reason and it will be released October 7th. Sadly, we can’t make out any text because of the blurry quality of the photo, but the artwork looks sick:

Meshuggah have released two teasers so far with little snippets of music: Teaser 1 & Teaser 2.

Meshuggah just released a crazy box set and will be touring this fall with High on Fire

MESHUGGAH, HIGH ON FIRE Announce Fall 2016 North American Tour

The face Meshuggah frontman Jens Kidman is making in the above photo is essentially my reaction when I heard Meshuggah have confirmed a North American tour for this fall, and they’re bringing High Fire with them .
It makes sense, after all, the band promised a new album this fall, and already announced a European tour with High on Fire supporting on that as well. The tour will hit the US, Canada and Mexico, although without High on Fire south of the U.S. border. The tour kicks off October 10th in Florida, heads up and down the coasts and and wraps up about a month later in Maryland. Here are the dates for the North American leg:
