In a December 2015 interview with Spark TV, HAMMERFALL guitarist Oscar Dronjak spoke about whether it’s “easier” for the band to write new music after 2014’s “(r)Evolution” album. He said: “No, it’s not easier. ‘(r)Evolution’ was quite easy, because it’s been a while, so we had a lot of inspiration that was dying to come out, Whereas now, I find it hard… For me, I always want to be removed from the live situation when I write songs, and it’s very difficult when you know that in three weeks you’re gonna go out on tour again.”

He continued: “I don’t think I would be able to do it if I was like I was when I was younger, but now I plan ahead much more. I have to. It’s what Joacim [Cans, vocals] has always done, but I’ve never really cared about it because I didn’t have to. But now I have a family and everything I have to take care of, so I think about things like that.”

“(r)Evolution” sold around 1,900 copies in the United States in its first week of release.

HAMMERFALL will embark on a European tour in early 2017. The trek, dubbed “Built To Tour”, will kick off on January 12 in Bremen, Germany.

“It’s been a hectic time juggling the remaining shows of the tour with songwriting and, ultimately, recording, so the name of this venture feels very fitting,” said Dronjak. “The ‘World Wide (r)Evolution’ was a resounding success on every level with half of the shows sold out, and we can’t wait to get back on stage again to have a gigantic heavy metal party every night with all our Templar friends!”
