SONIC SYNDICATE – announce European tour!
Anglo-Swedish modern metal powerhouse SONIC SYNDICATE have announced the upcoming festival dates for the summer of 2014 as well as the tour supporting the band's upcoming fifth, self-titled studio album: The "Diabolical Tour Of Art". Commented the band: "Itâs crazy, exciting, and mind-blowing to be back! The one thing we were looking forward to more than hitting the studio, was getting back on the road and seeing our fans, and now we have a killer new album to go out with! We canât wait for you to hear the new material, and of course weâll be ripping apart the stage with our favorite songs from all our albums! It is our personal mission to guarantee that these will be our most kick-ass, energetic and dynamic live shows yet. If youâve seen SOSY live before then youâre gonna want to see the âDiabolical Tour of Artâ as its gonna be bigger, better and more bad-ass. If youâve never seen SOSY live before then now is the perfect time to join the party, and get to one of the cities weâre playing. Damn, this is gonna be good!â The first single off the album, 'Black Hole Halo', can be viewed here:Also check out the studio trailer for more info: Part #1 | Part #2 The album will be self-titled and is set to be released July 4, 2014 via Nuclear Blast.â¨ Commented guitarist, main songwriter and founding member, Robin Sjunnesson: "We decided to go with this one as a âSelf-Titledâ release. Mainly because as an album we have put everything weâve got into it. All of our experience as musicians, the evolution of the music, the sound from all eras of the band, and also the road we have taken as people. This is us, this is Sonic Syndicate in all its beauty and destruction. It shows our strength, our love for melody, our scars, our energy. The cover art is a definite representation of that. In the background, a battle-torn city laid to waste, four figures emerging together with only each other to depend on in an environment so harsh, only those with a tough heart, body and soul can survive. The tone throughout this album is definitely darker, and as my Swedish family would say âWith a red-line running in the middleâ so we put this into the colour-scheme. We could not be more proud of this album, and we thank our fans for the support, it's because of them that weâre here. This album is for you.ââ¨â¨â¨â¨â¨â¨ Â»Sonic SyndicateÂ« will also feature a guest appearance by SOILWORK's gifted vocalist BjÃ¶rn âSpeedâ Strid on the track 'Before You Finally Break'. â¨â¨â¨â¨ Commented singer Nathan James Biggs: âI'm honored to call Speed a friend. I've been a big SOILWORK fan for years. Those guys were a massive hand in crafting that trademark Swedish sound so it made perfect sense to ask Speed when we knew we wanted to do a song with guest vocals. Performance wise I think we have similar styles and execution, but at the same time we both have our own thing going on so the voices compliment each other to great effect. My idea was also to have a real battle between our vocals. I hate it when you have these "featuring" songs and the guest just pops up for a chorus and then does backing vocals for a while in the verse or something. This is a real fight between us for the mic and I'm sure people are gonna appreciate that.â â¨â¨â¨â¨The album will include a total of 11 tracks while the limited edition digipak will feature no less than 3 bonus tracks on top.â¨â¨â¨â¨ Â»Sonic SyndicateÂ« tracklist:â¨â¨ 01.
