Dark Tranquillity Issues Tour Report

Swedish melodic death metal band Dark Tranquillity's vocalist, Mikael Stanne, has checked in with the following report from the road, “Sitting here in beautifully cold Minneapolis trying to get the hangover out of my system. Fargo yesterday was as barren and cold as I remember it from the Cohen brother’s movie. Amazing crowd though and we celebrated accordingly. So far this tour has been amazing for us. We are now two weeks in and we are only just getting started. Amazing venues and huge crowds. Obviously we are struggling with winning over some of the fans of Killswitch Engage and The Devil Wears Prada, but so far I have been positively surprised as to how many are at first skeptical only to two songs in go nuts in the pit. It's a beautiful thing to behold from the stage."

“We have been playing two new songs in the set and they have really got the room moving every single night. I am really looking forward to doing way more of the new album material as we are near release date. Since this is just the start of a very long touring cycle we are really excited to see that the album is getting rave reviews and the friends we've played it to really love it. It seems to generate a lot of heated discussion too, which I view as a good sign. With such a diverse album we are bound to hear all kinds of comments and we always welcome that. Bring on the love/hate fest!”

DARK TRANQUILLITY’s new album, "We Are The Void," is set for a March 9th U.S. release.

New Dark Tranquillity Video Available

Currently touring the US with Killswitch Engage and The Devil Wears Prada, Swedish melodic death metal masters Dark Tranquillity now present you their new promo video for the song “Shadow In Our Blood,” which was created by Vasara Films (Turisas, Dragonforce).

Vocalist Mikael Stanne reports in from tour: “Four shows into the tour we are now in lovely Atlanta, Georgia. The shows so far have been amazing. Tons of people have come out to all the shows and we have had a blast performing every night. We have been trying out some of the new songs and the response has been amazing. So we cannot wait for the album to come out so that we can play more of the new stuff that we are very proud of.

"The video for 'Shadow in our Blood' is online now and if you guys are into torture you might get a kick out of it. Imagine being strapped to a speeding motorized vehicle like one of those wooden maidens on pirate ships for 15 hours in the freezing cold forests of Finland and you might get an idea of what the video is all about.

"The guys from Vasara films, who also filmed and edited our live DVD, 'Where Death Is Most Alive,' once again did an excellent job. Enjoy!"
