Founder and guitarist Michael Amott comments: "I can't believe it's been almost a year since we released the 'War Eternal' album! Time flies when you're having fun huh?! We're just starting up our summer tour here in Europe and there's still a long way to go - we're booked up till Christmas! There has been such an amazing reaction to the new music and lineup and it is really keeping us motivated. Having Jeff Loomis out with us on the road is fantastic. A fine player and a true gentleman. I'm super happy that he could throw down a couple of leads on this new exciting version of 'Stolen Life', it really adds some new fire to the song. On our recent tour in Latin America we had the opportunity to film a video for our new single. It was a really good experience working with the talented Abysmo team and I'm more than happy with the end result! I look forward to seeing you all out there on the road..."
