Swedish industrial metallers PAIN have revealed the cover artwork (below) for the bands upcoming album You Only Live Twice.
Commented mainman & producer Peter Tägtgren: “I really wanted something with a Nightmare Before Christmas meetsAlice In Wonderland kind of feeling but with our mascot, the painhead in it. The artist Heile created what I wanted but did it in his own way. It really has this kind of Tim Burton feel to it. It will be really crazy on a big backdrop. We’re also gonna do some inflatable stuff with our Painhead. Its gonna be our Eddie, like IRON MAIDEN has.”
You Only Live Twice is set to be released on June 3 (Europe) and June 21 (North America) 2011 via Nuclear Blast!
