Mikael Stanne, singer for Swedish melodic death metallers DARK TRANQUILLITY, was in Italy recently to promote “Construct”, the band’s latest album. Paolo Bianco of Soundsblog.it met with Stanne and showed him a bunch of photos of the band taken through the years, asking the vocalist to recount his memories associated with each image. The beer-fuelled anecdotes can be seen in the video below.
DARK TRANQUILLITY‘s tenth studio album, “Construct”, will be released on May 27 via Century Media Records. The CD was mixed by Jens Bogren (PARADISE LOST, OPETH, KATATONIA) at his Fascination Street studios in Örebro, Sweden.
DARK TRANQUILLITY recently amicably parted ways with bassist Daniel Antonsson. According to the band, “Daniel wanted to focus on his own musical projects as well as working more in his recording studio. Being first and foremost a guitarist, he felt that the playing bass in a full-time band didn’t allow him much time for his main instrument and true passion. With this in mind, he chose to follow his heart and step aside at this point instead of committing to another album and an intense touring cycle that would leave little room for other activities.”
