PAIN – Update!
Industrial metal icons PAIN, lead by HYPOCRISY mainman & producer legend Peter Tägtgren just issued the following update: “What the hell is going on?! Well… It’s been a while since the last update and we thought it was about time to let you in on a couple of things. The last couple of months every one of us has been pretty busy with anything but PAIN. As you may know Peter has been concentrating on Hypocrisy this year and recently came home from a successful tour in South America. David, who just got signed up with Zildjian, is working for Unique Pyrotechnic along with doing a lot of different stand-in club shows in Sweden. Johan became a dad in August (best wishes from us all), and the more time spent away from PAIN means the more time spent with his family. Michael is working with different side projects along with his work for Digidesign. Now, the following months will be dedicated to PAIN and to finish the new songs. Up till today 8 songs are more or less ready to go, and at least 3 or 4 more are needed before we can start recording. Our plans are to start the recordings in late 2010 or early 2011, and have the album ready for a world wide release sometime in May 2011. After that we’re about to hit the road and do as many of the summer festivals as we can. Of course there will be a headline tour as well, and if everything works out we’ll even break new grounds. Work has also begun with designing a new stage set that will be something out of the average. As you may understand we’re more eager than ever to record this album, make it the best, and play it for you live. So stay tuned and visit our websites for continuous information, studio reports, album details, and the first showdates for 2011.”
