Swedish melodic death metal band Dark Tranquillity's vocalist, Mikael Stanne, has checked in with the following report from the road, “Sitting here in beautifully cold Minneapolis trying to get the hangover out of my system. Fargo yesterday was as barren and cold as I remember it from the Cohen brother’s movie. Amazing crowd though and we celebrated accordingly. So far this tour has been amazing for us. We are now two weeks in and we are only just getting started. Amazing venues and huge crowds. Obviously we are struggling with winning over some of the fans of Killswitch Engage and The Devil Wears Prada, but so far I have been positively surprised as to how many are at first skeptical only to two songs in go nuts in the pit. It's a beautiful thing to behold from the stage."

“We have been playing two new songs in the set and they have really got the room moving every single night. I am really looking forward to doing way more of the new album material as we are near release date. Since this is just the start of a very long touring cycle we are really excited to see that the album is getting rave reviews and the friends we've played it to really love it. It seems to generate a lot of heated discussion too, which I view as a good sign. With such a diverse album we are bound to hear all kinds of comments and we always welcome that. Bring on the love/hate fest!”

DARK TRANQUILLITY’s new album, "We Are The Void," is set for a March 9th U.S. release.

I got an advance copy of the album (but will be purchasing on release date!), it's excellent. A bit of a different direction but I love it. I also saw them in chicago on the second date and wow, they put on a great live performance... blew the other bands away.
