Evergrey Checks in With Album and Tour Update

Swedish progressive metal band Evergrey has checked in with the following album and tour update:

"As promised there will be a whole lot of news coming your way in the coming weeks and days.

"We have and still are undergoing some BIG changes in Evergrey at the moment. This involves everything you can possibly imagine, and can’t imagine. BUT we are also very determined and focused on making the best album we have ever accomplished! We have NEVER spent so much time on detail as we are doing on this album. Everything from sounds to song-structures is under the magnifying glass and nothing will be left to chance.

"Purely business related we are also undergoing changes, both big and small and the only thing we can and are allowed to say right now is that being us is very exciting for the moment :)"

"Of course you will all be informed about this as soon as we know for certain that the plans are going to take place.

"BUT we DO have some new tour-dates as well as quite a few to still be added on other continents than Europe so for our fans outside of Europe don’t give up hope we will try to please everyone as soon as possible, probably sooner than you think :)

"And for our Euro fans, be sure you get tickets for these shows as they will be something none of you have seen from Evergrey before. Hmmmm what else might there be to tell…?

"Yeah, back to the album! 11 songs are written and we will keep on writing and recording as long as time allows us. We are very pleased with the result and the direction we are heading right now. Maybe there is bit more weight put on melody and the orchestration of some songs. As said before, the sounds have become VERY important for us, every song has its own unique trademark as far as the sounds go. There are short songs (meaning 3 – 3.30 minutes) There are long songs (meaning up to 6.40) for the moment. There are slow, heavy, fast and atmospheric songs and of course most important of all – it sounds more Evergrey than ever!

"So please stay tuned, visit our pages to catch the latest news and we will be there to serve them."
