Sweden’s master butchers General Surgery have announced that they will be returning to their gore-splattering ways this autumn, in the form of a new 7” EP entitled, in typical fashion, ‘Like An Ever Flying Limb’. The featured five tracks were actually recorded in October of last year, but will see the light of day later in 2012, with an official release date to be confirmed. The band’s esteemed scalpel jockey and six-stringer Joacim Carlsson commented:


“These five splatter dripping tunes are designed to deeply disturb all mere mortals, be it the poor departed in the bowels of the morgue or some unfortunate soul catching us playing live during the festival season. Please hold on to life and limb.”


In conjunction with this news, the band have also announced that they will be heading over to Europe in August including dates at Brutal Assault and Party San, as well as UK dates in both Bristol and London.
