DARKANE are currently treading on U.S. soil for the first time, joined by FEAR FACTORY, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD and SOILWORK. Guitarist Christofer Malmström posted the following update from the band's North American tour:

"Today we´re in Milwaukee, WI. Been doing four shows so far, so only 29 to go! The audience has been really great so far! I´m surprised that so many people have shown up for the opening act... something that is not taken for granted when you open up in Europe.

Two days ago we were in Chicago. The first thing we did was to take a walk in that beautiful city to the Sears Tower, the tallest building in the US. The view was fantastic! We also took a group photo with this green screen where they put the tower in the background if you buy the pic. We´ll see if we can scan it and put it up here. When returning to the House of Blues we suddenly found ourself in one of the VIP opera boxes in the balcony at a gospel concert! For five Swedes that was a really cool experience!

After the show we took off for a night club together with Gene and Devin from SYL. Poor thing was that it was an 21 and over club and Gene didn´t bring his ID, so he didn´t get in. What is that!!?? Same thing happened to Klas but for some reason he got in anyway. I guess it´s the angel like blond hair, or the help of the merch girl Robin.

Yesterday we played Minneapolis, MN. Cool thing is my father lived and worked in this city 46 years ago. I guess he didn´t guess his son was gonna come back as a touring musician many years later. The show was cool as well. Peter finally got his own drums so he doesn´t have to play Gene's monster truck anymore.

Burton from Fear Factory had some Halloween make up on and the scissor sisters on stage for a song.

Today we´ve got hold of some electrical devices that we need for our backing track machine and if everything goes smooth we´ll finally have everything up and running for tonight's show! I´m happy Jörgen and Andreas are good technicians."

See you out there!!!
