Hate Gallery, which features current Warrior Soul members Rille Lundell and Janne Jarvis, will release their new six track E.P "Dead Celebrities" on 11/23.
Vocalist/bassist Janne Jarvis issued the following statement about the EP: "The title track is a modern day fairytale about a 'fictional' amoral British celebrity who epitomizes the Cult of Celebrity and who earns the disgust of a nation and it's media yet is considered a saint at the time of their untimely death. Were not pulling any punches with the title track and it's pretty easy to figure out who and what it's about. We're sick of the cult of celebrity and appalled at the media saturation and Mooney-esque brainwashing that goes with it. Live like a pig, die like a saint?"
The single "Dead Celebrity (Queen of the Damned)" will be available as a free download on Monday 26th October exclusively from this location. Two new tracks from the EP are now streaming at the band's MySpace page. Hate Gallery will release their second album "Viva La Resistance!' in February 2010.
Bassist/vocalist Janne Jarvis of Hate Gallery issued the following statement about being arrested at Pub Anchor in Stockholm, Sweden on October 1st:
“I’ve never experienced anything like it. The bouncers dragged me out and held me down over a barrier outside. I couldn’t breathe and they almost broke my arms. Luckily there were a number of people outside including some journalists who helped me get free. However this was just the start. I managed to make it into the middle of the street and was relieved to see that a police car had just pulled up. I tried to explain what had happened but before they could take a statement the bouncers rushed me and grabbed me again, this time with considerably more force. I pleaded with the police to stop them but they just stood back. They looked like they were panicking and didn’t seem to know what to do or they were ‘friends’ with the bouncers. Luckily some more police turned up and they kindly arrested me and took me away.
"I cannot believe how incompetent and incapable the Stockholm police were of protecting a member of the public from this kind of assault. Members of the police force that I spoke to later were amazed and embarrassed that members of their own department did absolutely nothing.
"Stockholm is a great city but the police have lost control of the streets and are powerless or unwilling to protect the public against these licensed thugs. Sadly these events occur every night of the year all around the world, it’s just a shame that a country like Sweden that prides itself on its anti-violence policies and equality should allow its reputation to be damaged by the impotence and apparent corruption of its police.This has to be stopped.
