Sisteskiva ble gitt ut via Century Media Records og Metal Blade Records.
«Where the Gloom Becomes Sound» er TRIBULATIONs femte studioalbumutgivelse og oppfølgeren til «Down Below» fra 2018. Sistnevnte album ble en favoritt blant kritikere over hele verden, og bandet mottok Grammis-pris hjemme i Sverige.
«Where the Gloom Becomes Sound» er produsert av Jamie Elton i Studio Ryssviken i Stockholm. Albumet er mixet og medprodusert av Tom Dalgety (Ghost, Opeth, Killing Joke, Pixies) ved Psalm Studios i Storbritannia, og er mastret av Magnus Lindberg ved Redmount Studios i Stockholm.
Bandet omtaler det kommende albumet slik:
«Down, further down, Where the Gloom Becomes Sound…», Anna-Varney Cantodea once sang in a previous millennium, in a different world. And further down than Down Below we went with this one. The album is a sombre one, filled with ghastly shadows and elemental magic – a mythological bestiarium vocabulum ranging from the desert sands to the midnight sun, from our murky prehistorical past to our potentially luminous futures. Figuratively, literally and musically. We worked together with producer Jamie Elton to create something wild and imaginative, something that would take the listener on a nightly adventure along with Fernand Khnopff’s enigmatic sibyl on the cover and with all the gods and goddesses, nymphs and demons that we conjured up during the recording. As an icing on an already frosted cake we had the help of Tom Dalgety for the finishing touches.»
Bandet annonserer også sin første Europa-turné med BØLZER og MOLASSESS.
«Now at summer’s end in the near endless year of trials and tribulations that is 2020, after a touring hiatus and a new album in the, so called, bag we are very happy to announce that we are yet again about to trek across the ancient body of Europa – over her flesh and through her veins – the land where the sun ever sets. And as fortunate as we sometimes are we will have both BØLZER and MOLASSESS aiding us in spreading the gloom in each of the 20 cities we are visiting. At this point we all need a little taste of Saturnalia and as so we encourage you all to join us in taking a step into the time before time, in illo tempore, and a step out of the profane everyday existence. Be open and let us possess you, at least for a night!»
