MESHUGGAH is touring in support of its highly acclaimed eighth studio album, “The Violent Sleep Of Reason”, which secured the band its first Grammy nomination in the “Best Metal Performance” category.
“The Violent Sleep Of Reason” was produced by the band and was engineered by Tue Madsen of Puk Studios in Kaerby, Denmark.
For “The Violent Sleep Of Reason” cover, MESHUGGAH once again enlisted Keerych Luminokaya who created the artwork for “Koloss” and “The Ophidian Trek” as well as the new images for each of the seven albums and three EPs featured in the “25 Years Of Musical Deviance” box set.
