The guardians of the Gothenburg sound, Dark Tranquillity, are ready to announce their upcoming 10th album. The band comments:

"Greetings, Darklings! After having played over 200 shows in every corner of the world in support of the 'We Are The Void' album, it's time to focus inwards and lock ourselves up in the studio. Months and months of hard songwriting work has paid off, and the recording sessions will start early this year.

"Further details will be announced in due time, but for now we can reveal that the album will be entitled 'Construct' and that we're very excited to have Jens Bogren (Paradise Lost, Opeth, Katatonia) taking care of the mix. The release date is set for May 28 in North America."

Further details on the follow-up to "We Are The Void" (reviewed here) will be announced as they become available. Dark Tranquillity will be touring worldwide throughout 2013 and beyond, and the next chance to see the band live will be in Dubai, where the group has never played before. Some European summer festival appearances have also been announced, and the band is currently working on a U.S. tour for this upcoming September. Stay tuned for more tour dates coming soon.

12.04.2013 -- Dubai Rock Fest -- Dubai, United Arab Emirates
30.05.2013 -- Beastival Festival -- Geiselwind, Germany
28.06.2013 -- Basinfire Festival -- Spalene Porici, Czech Republic
