In the light of commencing work for a next studio album release, ANGELUS APATRIDA have checked in to comment on their current activity as follows: "Things couldn't do better here at the ANGELUS APATRIDA camp. The latest European tour was a blast, the best we ever did by far, and now when we look at the future, we couldn't be any more thrilled; touring Japan with Havok and Rotting Christ feels like a dream come true, and same goes for Hellfest, we do really wanna try to do our best shows ever", before giving away a few details about their new material as follows: "We have started composing the new songs and so far it looks really killer; more direct-to-the-bone material and really tight riffing. We are sure it's gonna be our best work ever, because the time we had since we put out 'The Call' has been the most challenging we had and now we feel better than ever, So it's gonna affect the next record for good for sure. Stay tuned!"
Most recently, ANGELS APATRIDA released a 2CD/Digital Download set dubbed "Evil Unleashed / Give 'Em War" via Century Media Records. The 37-tracks (!) double-disc for the price of a standard-cd features the band's two first albums, "Evil Unleashed" (2006) and "Give 'Em War" (2007), as well as plenty of bonus material, marking the first time ever that these albums are properly available outside of the band's home territory of Spain. The 2CD set includes new artwork by Gustavo Sazes / abstrata.net (Arch Enemy, Firewind, Dream Evil, etc.), liner notes by the band and a total of 13 additional pre-production demo-tracks as special bonus, making it more than 2,5 hours of total Thrash turmoil!
