Literally translating to an “unwelcome” or “unacceptable” person, PERSONA NON GRATA touches on themes of modern societal disgust and degradation. The band gathered at Tom Hunting’s house in the mountains where they produced and recorded Persona Non Grata from three home-built studios . Steve Lagudi was at the helm of engineering while the band enlisted Andy Sneap of Backstage Studios to mix the album. For the third time in the band’s history, they returned to Swedish artist Par Olofsson to create the album artwork.
The PERSONA NON GRATA tracklist: Persona Non Grata / R.E.M.F / Slipping Into Madness / Elitist / Prescribing Horror / The Beatings Will Continue (Until Morale Improves) / The Years Of Death And Dying / Clickbait / Cosa Del Pantano / Lunatic-Liar-Lord / The Fires Of Division / Antiseed
