The new Dark Tranquillity video for "Lost To Apathy" shot by acclaimed director Roger Johansson (In Flames, Soilwork) has been posted here.
The track comes off the group's critically acclaimed new album "Character," their groundbreaking and most challenging offering yet. "Character," is as brutal as it is thought provoking and introspective. It quickly captivates the listener, keeping them on the edge of their seat while pummeling them with a barrage of menacing riffs, atmospheric keyboards and memorable hooks.
Look for the band to embark on a major headlining U.S. tour early next month alongside Soilwork, Hypocrisy and Mnemic. Tour dates: More...

On November 15th 2004 Dark Tranquillity's new “Lost To Apathy EP” was released through Century Media Records and received praise all over the globe, even managing to enter the official Swedish single charts at a very good position 47. Now it’s about time to introduce the upcoming seventh studio album “Character”, to be released January 24th 2005. Expect the best - because you’ll get the best!
The new massive Dark Tranquillity album “Character” is likely to be the most awaited Melodic Death Metal record since a very long time. We can assure that this album kicks serious ass, but also contains tons of great hooklines and a well-balanced mixture of pure aggression and fantastic melodies made for eternity. With “Character”, the Swedish six-piece have raised the bar to an almost unreachable height for their style’s “competitors”. You will get to hear and approve it: Simply check out the new song “Through Smudged Lenses” in the download section.
Mikael Stanne (Vocals) and Niklas Sundin (Guitar) just recently visited the German Century Media office and recorded a video message for their worldwide fan base: http://www.centurymedia.de/specials/dt_greetings.rm. More...
