Dutch atmospheric rock combo The Gathering are thrilled to reveal the name and cover artwork of their 11th full-length studio album. Called Beautiful Distortion, it is scheduled for release in early spring 2022 and clocks in at almost 50 minutes, with 8 tracks. The first single will be released on October 14th. The producer of the album is Attie Bauw, who also produced Home and How To Measure A Planet?.

The band comments: Beautiful Distortion is a typical eclectic The Gathering album, although it may be our most dynamic and melodic album to date. The Gathering's signature atmospheric and electronic rock sound is topped with the warm Nordic vocal lines by Silje Wergeland.

Vocalist Silje Wergeland adds: "We wanted the artwork and title to reflect the times we have been in lately. Both with the pandemic, trying to be creative in isolation, all our everyday struggles, in private life, in relationships, and all that comes in life and with not being able to meet face to face. It symbolizes communication, or the lack of it, the interaction that has been out of balance. But at the same time, all the beauty that can come out of this distortion, such as new music, ideas and perspectives. It has been a long way, but we are so pleased and excited to soon reveal what we have been working on so hard for the past years".
