Pain of Salvation Sets Release Date For "Road Salt One"

Sweden’s Pain of Salvation has announced the release date for their eleventh offering, "Road Salt One." The albums will be out in US stores on June 8, 2010.

Pain of Salvation’s 2009 EP release, "Linoleum" was a preview of the new double album concept. The band supported its release with a string of headlining shows throughout Europe and Russia as well as supporting Dream Theater in Australia.

Pain of Salvation also was featured on Sweden’s “Melodifestivalen” which is a national European song competition. The TV show put the band in the living rooms of millions of European viewers. Although they didn’t win the competition, the exposure helped catapult the digital version of their song “Road Salt” to #12 on the Swedish charts.

Road Salt One not only includes the aforementioned title track, it also includes the previous EP single/title track, "Linoleum." The song "Where It Hurts" is the next to get the music video treatment.

"'Road Salt One' is twelve tracks of sweaty gravel, asphalt butterflies, untrodden paths and brave decisions,” says Pain of Salvation mastermind Daniel Gildenlöw. “It will not beg for your liking, it will not make excuses, it will not carry you safely across the dangerous waters. If you don’t pick up its pace it will leave you stranded at the curb of the road. Yes, 'Road Salt One' might indeed be a harsh lover, but if you have the guts to follow it whole-heartedly and dare to surrender to its voice, it will take you places you need to visit."

Frontman Daniel Gildenlöw will be in the US and Canada touring with the Prog supergroup, Transatlantic, in April. Here are the tour dates:

Transatlantic US dates:
4/17 – The Downey Theater in Downey, CA
4/18 – The Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, CA
4/20 – Park West in Chicago, IL
4/21 – Metropolis in Montreal, Quebec
4/23 – The Blender Theater at Gramercy in New York, NY
