Minnesota-based melodic death metallers THE FIFTH SUN, whose current recording lineup includes Swedish drummer Patrik J. Sten (PASSENGER, ex-KEROZENE, TRANSPORT LEAGUE), have issued the following update:
"We are hard at work on our new album. Thus far it appears to be much more thrashy and heavier than our previous efforts, while still retaining our old-school feel."
"Don't worry: [there is] none of the weak-ass, paint-by-the-numbers crap that 99% of the labels are putting out."
"We are entertaining offers we have received to play some shows this summer. Some very big, some less so."
THE FIFTH SUN's second album, "The Hunger to Survive", was released in 2005. The CD was recorded at Studio Fredman and is the follow-up to the group's debut album, 2001's "The Moment of Truth".
THE FIFTH SUN, who feature in their current lineup Swedish drummer Patrik J. Sten (PASSENGER, ex-TRANSPORT LEAGUE), have issued the following update regarding the status of their forthcoming release "The Hunger to Survive":
"Here's the latest news. We will have the album back from manufacture in a few short days. 8-page full color booklet, she looks lean and mean! T-shirts, Long sleeves, Hoodies, and hats have been ordered and will arrive in a week or so. Tentative release date for 'The Hunger to Survive’ is October 18th, although we may push it back to October 25th, depending on several key factors. We had been toying with the idea of playing a few shows in the Midwest, but due to Studio Fredman being busy as hell, Patrik couldn’t leave Fredrik in the studio all alone, so we will not play them. We will however be playing 20 to 30 selected dates in 2006, so keep an eye out for those dates. They will be announced here when they are confirmed. Last, but certainly not least, we have some great news!!! Patrik and his lovely lady, Maria are expecting a new addition to the family on February 20th. We are very excited for them and you should be too! That’s it for this update. Keep checking the site in the coming week, there’s going to be lots of new stuff going on. Contests, deals, give-a-ways, hell even some free shit!
