Swedish melodic metal band Soilwork is thrilled to announce the band will join the NHL's New York Islanders on Monday, November 14th (Military Appreciation Day) for a home game at Barclays Center vs. the Tampa Bay Lightning.

While at Barclays Center, Soilwork vocalist and hockey enthusiast Bjorn "Speed" Strid and the band will take part in arena interviews, t-shirt toss, and a fan hype video to be aired during the game. Soilwork music videos will also be aired in the arena between periods. Not able to attend? You can view the game on TVA Sports, MSG+, SUN Sports television channels.

Vocalist Bjorn "Speed" Strid comments: "I started playing hockey when I was six and stopped when I was sixteen. I played in a local team called Landskrona, which also featured current NHL athletes. I was chosen among three other players from my club to be a part of Skåne Team in 1994, which featured the best players from the southern region of Sweden. Slowly after that I picked up the guitar and was blown away by the kick playing music gave me.

"I left my hockey career behind me and focused 100% on music but always looked back. Hockey has always been a big part of my life and while living in Toronto for five years, I played a lot of "shinny" - beer league hockey. I also got the chance to get to know Nikolay Kulemin."

Soilwork is currently headlining this year's "Fury" tour, also featuring support from heavyweight metal bands Unearth, Wovenwar, Battlecross and Darkness Divided. Dates are as follows:

11/11 - Flint, MI @ The Machine Shop
11/12 - Pittsburgh, PA @ Diesel
11/13 - New York City, NY @ The Gramercy Theatre
11/15 - Ottawa, ON @ The Brass Monkey
11/16 - Toronto, ON @ Rockpile West
