Dark Tranquillity's Brandstrom Write For Poker Mag

Dark Tranquillity keyboardist Martin Brändström has posted this message on the band's website:

"Attention swedish fans!

"As you all know, the game of poker has had a huge upswing the last years. Some of us in the band have picked up the habit, and nowadays we're always on the lookout for some card playing action during our travels around the globe.

"In the light of this I have hustled myself a column in Sweden's Poker Magazine. I'll contribute regularly, telling you about our endeavours both as hard working metallers and as compulsive gamblers.

"The first column, about the escapades at President Casino, Biloxi (since then completely destroyed by the hurricane Katrina), is printed in this month's issue which goes on sale tomorrow, so be sure to pick it up!"

Vocalist Mikael Stanne comments on the upcoming tour: "We are very proud and excited to announce that we are heading out on another massacre of the European variety. Right in the middle of darkest December we will come and haunt your waking dreams. We are bringing a strong package this time around for sure. The mighty CHIMAIRA from the US of A and our Danish drinking buddies HATESPHERE. I personally cannot wait to go out with a posse like this and I am confident that you people out there into diversity and intensity will get your fill. So prepare to get those carcasses out in the miserable pre-christmas cold and join us for hours cosy carnage and madness. I promise you the full DARK TRANQUILLITY experience with a long set of songs about self-destruction and pain that you all know and love!"

Arch Enemy Reschedule UK Tour

According to antiMUSIC.com, Arch Enemy have reluctantly taken the decision to RESCHEDULE their September UK shows until December due to the loss of the advertised and proposed support bands. Dark Tranquillity recently pulled out of the tour, and despite all the efforts of band, label and management, it has not been possible to find two adequate International acts to replace them at such short notice.

In today's market it is essential to give fans a great package that offers value for money, much as the Swedish Apocalypse show did last Christmas. It is the bands intention to use the intervening time to put together a great line-up that will give the fans more metal for their money.

All September tickets are 100% valid for the rescheduled December dates. In London, The Forum show has now moved to The Astoria where all tickets will still be valid.

The new dates are as follows:

Dec. 12 Cardiff, Coal Exchange
Dec. 13 Wolverhampton, Wulfrun
Dec. 14 Glasgow, QMU
Dec. 15 Manchester, Academy 2
Dec. 16 London, Astoria

The band apologises for any inconvenience caused, but nevertheless feels that rescheduling these dates is the lesser of two evils.

Only Summer breeze left, and then the most intense festival season in the history of the band is over. We're pleased to announce that the show at the Gates of metal festival in Hultsfred, Sweden was recorded by the Swedish national radio and will be broadcasted on their P3 LIVE show at some point in the future.

Dark Tranquillity Home From Italy And Finland

Dark Tranquillity has posted this message on their website:

Back home from Italy and Finland... - July 18, 2005

...where we had a great time performing at two very well organized and nice festivals. Big thanks to the staff at Evolution and Ilosaarirock, and everyone else that participated!

Sorry for not being able to stay around for autographs after the show at the Evolution festival, but we literally had to run from the stage to the van in order to catch the plane to Finland. We'll make up for it next time.

Pics from the show can be found at www.darkillity.net.

Dark Tranquillity Moves Evolution Fest Time Slot

Dark Tranquillity has posted this message on their official website:

Those of you attending the Evolution festival in Italy on the 16th of July should note that we're onstage VERY early: 12:00-13:30. We were originally scheduled to play right before headliners Nightwish, but the fact that we're doing the Ilosaarirock festival in Finland the following day unfortunately means that moving the slot is the only solution (apart from cancelling one of the festivals, which naturally wasn't an option).

So - make sure to show up in time to make the first breakfast gig in D.T.'s history a special event!

Graspop and Fury fest last weekend went really well - thanks to all of you maniacs for the support!
