Last Known Status: Active

Background

Evergrey is a progressive metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden. The band was founded in 1995 and released its debut album The Dark Discovery in 1998. Evergrey's lyrics have always been of the darker sort, and the same can be said of the band's imagery. While The Dark Discovery dealt with a variety of ideas, many later albums have been concept albums, dealing with issues like self-reformation (Recreation Day), paranoia, alien abduction (In Search of Truth), child abuse, cults and religion (The Inner Circle).

Evergrey Streaming New Song "Wrong"

Decibel Magazine is currently hosting an exclusive premiere of the new Everygrey song "Wrong," which can be heard here. The song is taken from Evergrey's upcoming release "Glorious Collision." The new album will be available on February 22nd in North America. In addition the song "Wrong" will be made available as a digital single Tuesday February 8th.

Tom Englund, guitarist and vocalist of the Swedish band, commented on recent changes in the band: "The most recent Evergrey line-up had reached a point where we no longer had fun as a group," he confesses, adding: "So we went our separate ways to save our friendship. There were no angry words, and we're still friends privately.

"In the beginning, we weren't sure whether we'd be able to write a new album without the wealth of experience that the previous line-up brought in. But after Rikard and I had composed a full three numbers during the first week, we felt that was a real coup. This may sound like a contradiction in view of our personnel situation, but Rikard and I have allowed more influences on 'Glorious Collision' than ever before. Some elements on 'Glorious Collision' are classic rock, based on a metal format; sometimes the tracks are quiet and haunting, sometimes wild, demanding and gripping."

Evergrey Cancels Tour Dates Due To Theft

Evergrey was scheduled to perform several upcoming tour dates with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. The band has now checked in with the following update about the remaining shows in Spain and Portugal being canceled due to having equipment stolen:

"Due to a break-in in Evergrey’s tour bus all gigs in Spain and Portugal are canceled. Evergrey lost equipment and merchandise for a value beyond 35000 Euros so it is impossible to continue. We pass Lyon on the way home and will use the equipment of the local support. Maybe we can go home and get new equipment for the Holland shows and come back but this is still uncertain. A list of ALL things stolen will be presented here together with the Police report. More details on this soon… To our Spanish and Portuguese fans we are extremely sorry but we have NO chance of making it with everything being stolen."

"Me and Rikard [Zander, keyboard] have together with Henrik [Danhage, guitars] and Jonas [Ekdahl, drums] made the mutual decision that it was best for us all that they leave Evergrey. They wanted to and we wanted them to. More...
