SOILWORK: New Album Title Revealed

December 19th, 2011
Soilwork

Soilwork

After a highly successful run of European festivals and select club shows, Swedish melodic metal maestros SOILWORK have started writing music for the follow-up to 2010′s “The Panic Broadcast”.

Commented vocalist Björn “Speed” Strid: “It’s been an intense summer and at this point, me and the boys are hibernating in pretty much every corner of the world and putting our next album together. Many songs are yet to be written but the inspiration is flowing! People can expect a continuation of the intensity and presence of ‘The Panic Broadcast’, only taken to a higher level. That’s the mindset. We will do some touring next year as well, before we hopefully enter the studio sometime in the early fall. The album title is already set: ‘The Living Infinite‘. Chew on that for a bit and don’t spit it out until the music is invading your ears, folks!”

“The Panic Broadcast” sold around 5,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 88 on The Billboard 200 chart.

The band’s previous CD, “Sworn to a Great Divide”, opened with 5,000 units back in October 2007 to land at No. 148.

“The Panic Broadcast” was released in Europe on July 2, 2010 and in North America on July 13, 2010 via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD was mixed at Fascination Street studio in Örebro, Sweden with Jens Bogren (OPETH, KATATONIA, PARADISE LOST, BLOODBATH).

SOILWORK’s new album was the first to feature guitarist Peter Wichers since his return to the band in 2008, as well as the studio debut with axeman Sylvain Coudret, who also joined in 2008.

SOILWORK filmed a music video for the song “Deliverance Is Mine” with directorIvan Colic (EX DEO, TYPE O NEGATIVE, UNLEASHED) and producer Stanimir “Staca” Lukic (MOONSPELL, KAMELOT, DEATHSTARS, TYPE O NEGATIVE).

US melodic death metal two piece THE NEOLOGIST has just announced that in addition to recording their sophomore album The Promise of Eternal Separation, they will also be recording an entire SOILWORK tribute album.  To get the party started, they will be having a guest drummer who is well known throughout the metal community for their first release from the album, “Shadowchild”.  The mystery drummer has not been revealed yet, but stay posted for the official announcement.

THE NEOLOGIST is coming off the release of their debut album The 26 Letters of Your Universe which the band has been giving away for free via their Bandcamp site (http://theneologist.bandcamp.com).  Fans can also download all of their covers on their album IN FLAMES We Trust: Volume I which is also on the Bandcamp site.  The follow up album, The Promise of Eternal Separation, is set to be released in early 2012, and just like their first album, the band is giving away the entire album for free.  A sampler of the album can be heard on their YouTube page (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LtppE-7P7jk&list=UUqCualetdCQK2eLxMyEbgKw&feature=plcp)

 

In addition, THE NEOLOGIST wants to engage fans and let them choose which SOILWORK songs they will cover on the new album.  You can leave a message on their website with your thoughts on which songs they should cover (www.theneologist.net).

SOILWORK Singer and ARCH ENEMY Bass Player Launch Classic Rock Band

March 25th, 2011

THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA

THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA

THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA, the new classic rock band featuring Björn Strid (SOILWORK) and Sharlee D’ Angelo (ARCH ENEMYSPIRITUAL BEGGARS), have posted two songs on their Facebook and Myspace pages. For music visit:http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Night-Flight-Orchestra/210664785613576?sk=app_178091127385 |www.myspace.com/nightflightorchestra
THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA started like so many others as an innocent yet serious drunken idea when Björn Strid (SOILWORK) and David Andersson (MEAN STREAK, session SOILWORK) were on the road together somewhere in North America in 2007. Björn andDavid were bonding over what they considered “classic” or not, from rock n roll conspiracies to being arrested in a lobby with nothing but leather pants on. All those scenarios, fictional or real, needed a soundtrack. They also came to think that whether you’re on a metal tour or not, a lot of classic rock songs say it all and can really lend you a helping hand and make you forget about everything, especially when in motion or travelling. The classic escape. The never-ending road trip. The transatlantic night flight. It may sound simple and naive but what it all comes down to is that we all need that soundtrack to feel extra special, whether you have been arrested in a lobby or not.

 

It didn’t take long before bass player Sharlee D’ Angelo (ARCH ENEMYSPIRITUAL BEGGARS) joined forces as well as keyboard playerRichard Larsson (VON BENZO) and drummer Jonas Källsbäck (MEAN STREAK). The goal was to reclaim the 70′s/early 80′s sense for classic melody, the forgotten recipe to a timeless song, preferably a song mentioning a city, street name or an exhilarating alcoholic beverage. Anything that will have you spitting out the word ‘classic’. From “Tarot Woman” to “Badlands”, from “Rhiannon” to “Running on Empty”, from “Blind Man” to “Night Moves”, from “Deuce” to “Separate Ways”, from “Elected” to “Set me Free”. The list goes on. It’s all about reclaiming the “classic”. The band is currently unsigned but are looking into recording their debut album this summer.

SOILWORK FORCED TO CANCEL UPCOMING NORTH AMERICAN TOUR

March 9th, 2011
Soilwork

Soilwork

Swedish modern metallers SOILWORK – who were originally scheduled to head out this April & May supporting SYMPHONY X – have regretfully been forced to cancel their participation on this upcoming North American tour.

 

Drummer Dirk Verbeuren has issued the following statement:

 

“Due to recurring issues with a herniated disc in his lower back requiring a prolonged period of resting and healing, our guitarist Peter Wichers is forced to sit out this spring’s North American tour with Symphony X and Nevermore. We did consider hiring a fill-in guitar player, but we’ve decided to stick together as a band and out of respect for our fans, to cancel our participation in the tour. Our apologies to those of you who were hoping to see us. If all goes well, Peter should be healed and ready to hit the road in time for the summer festivals.”

 

Debuting at #88 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart the week after its July 2010 release, The Panic Broadcast secured SOILWORK’s highest-charting record in the history of the band and marked the return of original guitarist, songwriter & producer Peter Wichers, whose last album appearance was in 2005.

 

View Peter’s interview & guitar lesson with Guitar World magazine here.

 

Watch the video for “Let This River Flow” by Tommy Jones of Studio NJ at this location.  View the “Deliverance Is Mine” video by Rock The Nation here.

SOILWORK: Join BP Boycott on Summer Tour

June 23rd, 2010

The Godfathers of Swedish modern metal, SOILWORK, have decided to join the BP-boycott by not using any BP or BP-affiliated products and facilities on their upcoming 2010 North American headlining tour.

“We’re outraged about BP’s obvious profit-over-safety policy leading to this terrible disaster and their extremely poor handling of the oil spill,” commented the band.”In joining the boycott and calling all our fans to do the same, we can collectively make a statement strong enough to bring this shameless, careless corporation to its knees, and to avoid such catastrophes in the future.”

Catch SOILWORK on their North American headlining tour this Summer with San Francisco Bay Area thrash legends DEATH ANGEL! Joining them will be Quebec’s tech-death masters AUGURY, Roadrunner Records recording artists MUTINY WITHIN, and pirate themed thrashers SWASHBUCKLE.

SOILWORK and DEATH ANGEL have now added a special event VIP ticket for a pre-show meet-and-greet to take place one hour before doors. Each night, fans will get to meet and greet SOILWORK and DEATH ANGEL for a special event that is being offered. Fans will also receive a customized poster to get signed by both bands. These special VIP tickets are on sale now at EnterTheVault.com .
