Dark Tranquillity To Work On New Album

Dark Tranquillity has posted this message on their website:

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.

The upcoming autumn will hopefully mean more touring and mayhem, and the songwriting for the next album will soon commence.

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!

NEHMF 2005 Live Report

It’s that time of year again- birds are chirping, trees are blossoming, the city’s Crowne Plaza Hotel is bombarded with numerous metal parties. And, of course, the local businesses in Worcester, MA hand out flyers that read “Dear metalheads (!!!), if you’re wondering where to get drunk tonight, come to our pub”.

It’s the New England Metal Fest weekend, which was held on April 22-24 and welcomed fans from all corners of the US, Canada, Puerto Rico and even UK. Probably the biggest and best festival on this side of the Atlantic. At least this year’s. I was giddy with excitement about this event since January and I lived to share my observations and opinions. More...

Dark Tranquillity has posted the following message on their official website:

Hi people,

we've just finished the last gig of the Kreator / Ektomorf / Hatesphere tour and would like to send a warm "thank you!" to everyone involved; our new friends in the bands, the crew and of course everyone that attended the shows. This was one of the most successful tours we've ever had the pleasure of doing, and rest assured that we'll be back on the European stages in the near future.

For some live pics from various gigs of the tour, feel free to check out www.dark-tranquillity.nl or www.photopit.com.

For those of you that couldn't come to the shows, here's some firsthand information on what you missed out on. Since all kinds of info has been floating around on the internet regarding playing time, setlists etc, it's best to set the record straight. We played for 45 minutes, with the exception of the gigs in Sweden that were extended to 55 minutes. The following songs were played at some point during the tour (alternating every night):
