The Haunted: to release 'Eye Of The Storm' single; set to appear on 70,000 Tons Of Metal cruise
Swedish metal pioneers THE HAUNTED will soon debut new music by releasing a 3-track single, entitled Eye Of The Storm. Due out January 20th in Europe and January 21st in North America via Century Media Records, Eye Of The Storm will be available as a limited edition 7" and as a digital single, featuring the new songs "Eye Of The Storm", "Infiltrator" and "My Enemy". Fans can pre-order the 7" on black vinyl (limited to 500 copies worldwide) or white vinyl (USA exclusive; limited to 200 copies) now at CM Distro.
Eye Of The Storm marks THE HAUNTED's recording debut of the band's revamped line-up, which includes founding members Jensen (Guitars) and Jonas Björler (Bass), returning members Marco Aro (Vocals) and Adrian Erlandsson (Drums), as well as new member Ola Englund (Guitars).
THE HAUNTED's Jensen comments: "There aren't superlatives enough to describe how much the band has longed for these three songs to be released. We are sure fans have been anxious to know what the band sounds like today after all the turmoil and old members leaving and new members joining. We feel that these three songs represent the band perfectly. We are currently working on the new album, an album that will be filled to the brim with what we know to be 'THE HAUNTED'. We'll start doing gigs this spring and we'll do festivals all over the place this summer. Get in touch with the festivals you visit (and behave like an animal at) and tell them to get us on the bill! THE HAUNTED is back. Play it loud. No. Louder."
THE HAUNTED, who are currently busy working on their upcoming studio album release expected for Summer 2014, will be celebrating their long awaited return to the stage (and the debut of their revamped line-up) by taking part in the 70,000 Tons Of Metal cruise, which runs from January 27th-31st, going from Miami to Costa Maya, Mexico and back to Miami. Other bands appearing on the cruise include CARCASS, CYNIC, DARK TRANQUILLITY, DEATH ANGEL, FEAR FACTORY, FINNTROLL, OBITUARY, ORPHANED LAND, SATYRICON and many more.
