Pain Posts European Tour Trailer

The following press release has now been issued about Pain heading out on the "Into Darkness" tour:

"The gaping, sinister and black abyss has many faces – just like its musical offspring…for the second time, the Into Darkness tour will crawl upon Europe! In time for the dawning of black winter days, a live package will start hitting clubs November 9th and boasting a line up full of dark gems of the widest stylistic variety: industrial metal, gothic tunes, melancholic doom – this tour has it all: Pain, Moonspell, Swallow the Sun, Lake of Tears, and Scar of the Sun united on one tour.

"Swedish legends Pain, featuring maestro Peter Tägtgren, will fill the headliner position, and this act can truly make the dead dance! Morbid lyrics meet stomping industrial beats and wicked metal guitars: a band to make every goth, EBM freak and metalhead in the audience happy with evergreens such as ‘Follow Me‘ or ‘Shut Your Mouth‘! 2011 saw the release of 'You Only Live Twice' and Pain is renowned to spread a heavy and somber atmosphere live especially."

Watch the official Pain tour teaser trailer below. Tickets are available through Nuclear Blast at this location.
