Soilwork vocalist Bjorn "Speed" Strid has posted the following update online:

"As you might know, we're currently out on tour in Europe. I'm writing to you from Glasgow, Scotland. The rain has been just as unstoppable as the beer drinking on the tourbus, but today the sun is actually shining and everybody is in a great mood!

"We're now ten days into this European trek and things are going smoothly. Peter (Wichers) and Sylvain (Coudret) are tearing it up; I'm telling you people, they're a murderous guitar duo! Just you wait and see! Crowds have been great as well, noisy and roudy, just the way we like it! Luckily, my twisted flipper is back on track after falling into the drumkit while doing some of that old school pogo dancing on stage... However, my stage shirt is pink after a head-shaving accident right before the Birmingham show last night...

"Anyways, we're doing some tracks that we haven't played live in a very long time, and even some tracks that we've never played at all like 'Black Star Deceiver'. I gotta say it's working out really good! The only thing missing is DEVIN TOWNSEND doing his trade off vocals with me. I guess I'll just have to fly him to Europe... You there Devin?

"Speaking of setlists, I was just checking out the poll results for the US tour (in 2009 with DARKANE, WARBRINGER and SWALLOW THE SUN) and I gotta say the response and voting is massive! With all of your help, it will turn out to be an interesting setlist for sure... Keep on voting people!

"We brought some portable studio equipment with us on the road, so who knows, some musical magic might be created in the coming weeks. Can't wait for that to happen!"
