Former THE HAUNTED frontman Peter Dolving has launched a new “touring entity” which will perform songs from all of his past and present projects, including MARY BEATS JANE, THE HAUNTED, ZEN MONKEY and BRINGTHEWARHOME.
Dubbed HOUSE OF DOLVING, the new band — which will be “up and rolling by November,” according to the singer — will consist of the following musicians:
* Peter Dolving (THE HAUNTED, MARY BEATS JANE) – Vocals
* Johan Reivén (LOK, IN A PIGS EYE, THÅSTRÖM) – Bass
* Peter Asp (BOMBUS, MARY BEATS JANE, STILLBORN, IS 9) – Drums
* Thomas Brandt (LOK) – Guitar
Regarding the HOUSE OF DOLVING band name, Dolving said, “[It] sounds kinda cheesy and pretentious. But I like it. And it the only way that can offer a way to explain/present what the hell I/we are doing.”
He added, “When you see HOUSE OF DOLVING on the bill, that means you can expect some of the best and coolest live musicians performing with me, and sometimes without me, playing really fucking good music.”
Previously a vocalist for MARY BEATS JANE, Dolving joined THE HAUNTED in 1997 and sang in their debut self-titled album. In 1998, he left the group to concentrate on a band called ZEN MONKEY but returned in 2003 following the departure of Marco Aro (the vocalist which took over Dolving‘s spot after Peter‘s 1998 exit). He has since appeared on the studio albums “Revolver” (2004), “The Dead Eye” (2006), “Versus” (2008) and “Unseen” (2011).
