I can tell you that the next album will be pretty dark (no surprises there!), and deals with some awkward themes.
You want something exclusive?...ok..... The next Arena album will be called....
The Tinder Box
I hope that answers a few questions
It's amazing how an album's title can conjure up pictures in one's head, and I find myself exploring those images and have come up with a track listing for 'The Tinder Box' !!I

utside The BoxU
For the cover I can see a smallish metal box (a tinder box obviously !) a container for our memories and darkest thoughts, embossed with symbols, signs and insignia, viewed through our eyes with a hand (our hand) bandagged at the wrist, holding the half opened lid, and inside within the swirling mist we can see images from our past (the cyclist from The Visitor, the TV from Immortal, butterfly with burning wings, the figure (Noah isn't it?) from Contagion walking away into the distance, etc) and glimpses from our future (a lighter, a knife, a crucifix, lyrical links etc..).
So do other's here get their own picture of the next album from the title or is it just me and the drugs I'm on !!!!!!!
