Jinjer Has Written ’80 Percent’ Of The Music For Next Studio Album

June 6, 2023

Jinjer bassist Eugene Abdukhanov was recently interviewed by MoreCore.TV at Rock Am Ring festival in Nürburgring, Germany and talked about the songwriting sessions to follow-up their 2021 album “Wallflowers”.

Abdukhanov said, “A lot of new music has been written. Demos [have] been recorded.”

He added, “I think we are waiting for a moment, point where we just say, ‘Okay, let’s start,’ and then we go to the studio and record the new record, the new album. I think that music-wise, material-wise, we are at eighty percent of the new album.”

As for what you can expect with the new music, Eugene said, “There always will be something that has never been [there] before. Otherwise there is no need to make new music. It is hard to say now what exactly it’s gonna be. And to some extent, I just don’t want to make new spoilers. But it’s gonna be definitely different from the previous album, for sure. On the ‘Wallflowers’ album, I think we went even [in the] doom metal direction, to some extent, because there are some very slow and very moody parts. On the new record, to some extent, in some way, it’s going the other way — maybe death metal direction, something like this. Something really powerful, again groovy and something that just hits you, punches you straight to the face.”

Jinjer played their first live show since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on June 10, 2022 at last year’s Greenfield Festival, in Interlaken, Switzerland.

This summer, the band returns to America opening for Disturbed on their “Take Back Your Life” tour. Breaking Benjamin is also on that bill.
