Swedish thrash metal band band The Haunted has announced the release of their live DVD/CD entitled “Road Kill” (artwork). The DVD features an in-depth, very unique “on the road movie” documentary, a recording of THE HAUNTED's current and up-to-date live set and the band’s recent promotional video clips as a bonus. The live show was captured in Amsterdam’s Melkweg on February 13th, 2009 by Fabchannel and its sound was mixed and mastered by longterm band-producer Tue Madsen (Sick Of It All, Dark Tranquillity, Heaven Shall Burn).
THE HAUNTED’s Anders Björler produced the documentary and looks forward to finally share it with the fans, commenting as follows: "Road Kill is 10 years of touring compressed into a 65-minute documentary feature. It's rough, dirty, honest and to the point. After working almost 2 years on and off on this film, I am pleased it will finally see the light of day."
Vocalist Peter Dolving adds, "This DVD is a slice of life, a peek into what it's like being on the road with THE HAUNTED. Buy it, watch and enjoy, when you are dead and buried you won't be able to, will you?"
The Haunted has announced their upcoming DVD/CD, "Road Kill," will be released in Europe on April 19 and in North America on June 8 via Century Media. This live release will be available as a DVD+CD set, as well as a stand-alone CD and digital download.

"Road Kill" features an in-depth, unique on-the-road documentary, footage of The Haunted's live performance and the band's recent promotional video clips. The live show was captured on February 13, 2009 at Melkweg in Amsterdam, Holland by Fabchannel and was mixed and mastered by The Haunted's long-time producer Tue Madsen.

Swedish thrashers THE HAUNTED have announced signing a new worldwide deal with Century Media Records after a successful partnership for the band’s stunning three last albums (“rEVOLVEr”, “The Dead Eye”, “Versus”).
THE HAUNTED’s Peter Dolving (vocals) comments, "So once again we've decided to sign with Century Media Records. It feels good to get continuation, and truly having worked hard on communication on both ends over these last years, has brought us together in ways that I believe a lot of bands/managements/labels only dream of. Long term goals, open agendas, and a Norse/German stubborn attitude seem so be something we find a mutual trust and strength in and we're really looking forward to a continued cooperation with our friends/partners at Century Media. It is a strange thing this, the business of music, but like everything else, it seems to come down to hard work, earnestness, straight talk and respect. So here's to many more years of churning out metal to the masses. Peace!"
