Dark Tranquillity Post Update About New Album

Swedish death metallers DARK TRANQUILLITY have posted the following message on their official website:

"Just arrived back home to the frosty plains of Sweden after having spent the last five weeks on the road. The tour was a huge success, with almost all dates being sold out. Massive thanks to OPETH, DEVILDRIVER, DEVIN TOWNSEND BAND and of course to all of you that visited the shows. Live photos will be added in the near future. If you've got any good ones, feel free to submit them to darkhq@gmail.com. The main focus now will be the songwriting for the next album, so we'll be keeping a pretty low profile on the festival curcuit this summer, only doing a selected few shows."

Dark Tranquillity Misses First Show Of Opeth Tour

Dark Tranquillity have posted the following message on their official website explaining why they missed the first show of the Opeth tour:

"As most of you have heard, we didn't play the 1st gig of the tour due to a missed flight in Paris. Due to foggy weather conditions, the plane from Gothenburg to Paris took off a bit later than scheduled. Despite the airline staff guaranteeing that they'd keep the connecting plane to Atlanta on hold and even arranging a special shuttle taking us to the gate as quickly as possible, we were met with a "too late, sorry" response when trying to check in.

"Our management checked all possible options for booking a new flight to allow us to make it to Raleigh in time, but ultimately we had no other choice than to wait for the next Paris-Atlanta flight 24 hours later.

"We're really sorry for the inconvenience caused, but hope that everyone understands that what happened was solely the fault of Delta Airlines and not the band, management or any promotor. We did our outmost to solve the problem, but unfortunately it couldn't be done."

Dark Tranquillity Guitarist Publishes Book

Dark Tranquillity guitarist Niklas Sundin has posted this message on the band's website:

"As many of you know, I'm not only a criminally overrated guitarist but also a freelance graphic designer, having created artwork for bands like In flames, Arch enemy, Sentenced and so forth. During the years I've recieved lots of requests for some sort of book with my work, and now the time has come.

"'Gadus morhua' features 132 pages of b/w drawings created between 1993 and 2005. These days, when everyone and his dog can toy around in Photoshop and create "artwork" by blending a few layers, it feels nice to release a collection of old fashioned pencil drawings, created directly in my sketchbook without any preparational work. Just spontaneous ink-on-paper.

"Those who are interested can head over to cabinfevermedia.com for some previews as well as video clips that show the typical development process of a drawing. It usually starts with an eye..."

"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.
