Deathstars Announces European Tour

Swedish death-glam quintet Deathstars has just announced an extended tour throughout Europe for March and April, 2014.

The band's new studio album is also set for release in February 2014 via Nuclear Blast Records, which follows 2009’s "Night Electric Night." The recordings will take place in Studio Bohus with Roberto Laghi who will co-produce the album together with Nightmare Industries.

Comments lead vocalist Whiplasher Bernadotte on the forthcoming full-length: "Deathstars is an adventure for us. It’s as if it is a phenomenon of it’s own, and our forum for destruction, glitter and darkness. We are very excited about the new material and every time we hit the studio we never know what the outcome will be, I mean we have a general idea but we’re never a 100% sure how the final result will be until we’re done and can sit back and listen to it."

Deathstars To Record New Album

After the "Made in Germany" tour 2011/2012 together with Rammsteain, Swedish act Deathstars began writing new material for an upcoming album.

In May 2013, Deathstars will do a shorter tour in Australia, headline the MainStage at Blackfield Festival, Germany in June and then go back to Sweden to get mobilized for the recordings that are scheduled to start in July.

The album, which is yet untitled, marks the band's fourth full-length release. The recordings will take place in Studio Bohus, Sweden in July and August together with producer & technician Roberto Laghi, who will co-produce the album with Nightmare Industries.

"It's a ride through the most extreme nightclubs in hell, It's got more edge, it's got a rougher side, and it's less sugar coated than our last full length album with darker more twisted melodies. It's got a devilish attitude with a stiff upper lip yet beautiful in a dark deceiving way," says Nightmare Industries. More...

Amon Amarth To Headline Summer Breeze

The Summer Breeze festival organizers have issued the following announcement about confirming Amon Amarth as a headliner for the festival's 2012 edition:

"Behind the 24th door of our Advent Calendar there's none other than our favourite vikings AMON AMARTH, who are now confirmed as the second headliner for the 15th SUMMER BREEZE Open Air beside Subway To Sally.

"It's almost incredible the way our Swedish friends have enjoyed a continued rise to the top of the scene. Top-ten chart entries, headliner slots on all major festivals, sold-out tours, enthusiastic fans everywhere – by now Mr Johan Hegg and Co. have become real stars, but they still have their feet firmly planted on the ground, because they haven't forgotten where they started. And that's why they like to return to those places, one of them definitely being SUMMER BREEZE!

"What, it's Christmas already?!? How time flies. Our SUMMER BREEZE Advent Calendar had only just begun, and now it's all over again. We hope we were able to fulfill your wishes and expectations, and perhaps even surprise you with one or two of the confirmed bands.

"Here's a final overview of our Advent Calendar, which has been making you company for the last 24 days: More...
