TYR is currently finishing work on their eighth studio album, due out this fall via Metal Blade Records. The follow-up to 2013's critically-claimed Valkyrja full-length involves a story based around a nameless, Viking-era warrior who leaves his woman to impress the Valkyrie on the battlefield so that she may bring him to Valhalla, or to Folkvangr, the home of Freyja, the goddess associated with love, sexuality, beauty, fertility, gold, sorcery, war, and death. One can say the album is also indirectly about women and how they affect men and what men will do to impress and obtain women. Joensen elaborates, "The woman that the warrior leaves may represent the earthly women. Freyja, The Lady Of The Slain, may represent the perfection of women, and the Valkyrie is the link between the two, taking men from earthly to godly women."
