After their extraordinarily successful US tour with Damageplan (our sincere condolences to all relatives of the victims of the tragic incident – R.I.P., Dimebag) and labelmates Shadows Fall, the Swedish five-piece will now start to devastate Europe.

On January 26th 2005 The Haunted will head out for the “Close Up Made Us Do It Tour” as headlining act all over Scandinavia together with supports Totalt Jävla Mörker & Insision. The last show of this leg will take place in Arhus (DK) on February 13th. Afterwards the guys have a few days off to hang out at home before they fly to the UK in order to tear down the walls of the English clubs. The headlining tour will start February 24th and run up to March 7th with support acts Martyr AD & Dead To Fall. More European tourdates will be announced soon.

Here is Frontman Peter Dolving’s comment about the activities of the past months:

It’s been an insane, great, weird and sad year. We’ve received such a strong response to "rEVOLVEr" as we never have before and it feels - as you can probably imagine - well, like a lot of everything.

The spring of 2004 we did a tour in the UK with our brothers in Funeral For A Friend, playing for an audience completely new to us. I did that whole tour with four fractured ribs and it hurt like hell every night but we still had a good time. Seeing teenage girls screaming in the first row and watching as 2000 Emo-kids formed circle-pits as we played in Glasgow was amazing.

The six week US tour with Shadows Fall and Damageplan ended on a sour note with the slaying of Dimebag Darrell, but it was heavy fucking package, every show escalating the intensity as we all inspired each other to outdo ourselves, setting a new mark every night.

We intend to honour Dimebag’s memory by fucking shit up more ferociously than ever before and we look forward to seeing our fans throughout the UK – it’s a hard love thing, you know what I mean... If there was ever a mark for what we can achieve as a band - Well, this time we push the limits forward. See you there.
