PAIN, MOONSPELL, SWALLOW THE SUN and LAKE OF TEARS will join forces for the “Into Darkness Tour 2012” in November.
PAIN‘s seventh album, “You Only Live Twice”, was released in June 2011 via Nuclear Blast Records.
Regarding the album’s cover artwork, Tägtgren previously said, “I really wanted something ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ meets ‘Alice In Wonderland’ kind of feeling but with our mascot, the Painhead in it. And Heile created that after what I wanted. And he did it in his own way. It really has this kinda Tim Burton feel to it. It will be really crazy with a big backdrop. We also gonna do some inflatable stuff with our Painhead. Its gonna be our Eddie, like IRON MAIDEN has it.”
HYPOCRISY is writing material for their 13th studio album, which they plan to record later this year for an eary 2013 release via Nuclear Blast Records.
The band’s latest DVD/CD, “Hell Over Sofia – 20 Years Of Chaos And Confusion”, was released in October via Nuclear Blast. The disc contains footage of the group’s February 27, 2010 concert at the Blue Box club in Sofia, Bulgaria.
