Cult Norwegian deathpunks will release their first album in over five years next February

Turbonegro have announced their new album, ROCKNROLL MACHINE, their first in over five years, and shared its lead single, 'Part III: RockNRoll Machine', which you can listen to below.

The cult Norwegian outfit will release their tenth studio LP next February 2, 20 years to the day since they began their 'Apocalypse Trilogy' with 1998's Apocalypse Dudes.

The band describe the lead single, which you can listen to above, as comparable to a 'coincidental tribute' to the late Malcolm Young of AC/DC.

They go on to describe their new record, saying: Everyone has been intrigued and frightened by all the talk about A.I. and robotification of society lately, so we wanted to bring that tech-talk into boogie rock territory and stop thinking so much about tomorrow.

"The Rock and Roll Machine has all the traits you’ll find a in a classic rocker: he keeps going all night, telling Tchaikovsky the news, but is still quite cheap and affordable, and, unfortunately a bit unpredictable (according to some reviewers), quickly becoming passé."

The band will be touring the record throughout Europe. The dates are as follows:

February

09 - Folken, Stavanger, Norway
10 - USF Ferftet, Bergen, Norway
16 - Studentersamfundet, Trondheim, Norway
17 - Rockefeller, Oslo, Norway

March

02 - KOKO, London, UK
03 - Paradiso Noord, Amsterdam, Netherlands
09 - Debaser Strand, Stockholm, Sweden
10 - 50 36, Berlin, Germany
