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.

Shortly after the release of “Character“ the band will present their new album on relentless touring: First off a huge European Tour with Kreator, Hatesphere and Ektomorf kicks off beginning February, ending March 7th at the Helsinki Icehall with the “Tuska Winter War” Festival together with Cradle Of Filth and others.
