Australian goth/doom metal band The Eternal has posted a tour report from Europe and the US, plus a hint at details for their upcoming fifth album, hopefully due out in 2010.
“We have finally returned home from our extensive world tour which saw us play through Australia, Japan, Portugal, Spain, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Finland, Hungary, USA, Canada & Mexico. We played with bands such as Katatonia, Swallow the Sun, Anathema & Tarja (former Nightwish vocalist) as well as many other fantastic bands along the way. It was an amazing tour for us, with some very difficult times and some of the best moments that band has experienced. We would like to thank every promoter, band and fan we met and made along the way and anyone that believed in us or gave us somewhere to sleep, the tour could not have happened without you and we are truly grateful. Expect a mass of pictures and video online in the near future.
“We have been working on a yet to be titled 4th album that we are currently planning to record in december and it should see the light of day in 2010. We have some great people involved in this project and we look forward to sharing some more details with you in the coming months. We have the basis of around 7 songs written, but more on that later!”
