In other news, we are currently working on a DVD release, which we shall recorded in Santiago, Chile on March 24th, 2007 at the 4000 capacity theatre Teatro Caupolicán. It will be a heavy, rock orientated DVD called 'A Noise Severe,' a sort of the 'Yang' from A Sound Relief (which was the 'Ying') What a spiritual nonsense!
We will also start working on a new CD this spring and hopefully we will release it somewhere in 2008. We keep on touring and promoting our latest album 'Home' in 2007. We're a busy band!"
THE GATHERING's latest album, "Home", was released in April of 2006 in North America via The End Records.
