Swedish melodic death metallers DARK TRANQUILLITY have issued the following update:
"To coincide with our shows in the Land Of The Rising Sun [Japan], 'Haven'  and 'Projector'  will be released in new versions. Both albums will feature lengthy liner notes by sensei [Mikael] Stanne [vocals] detailing the writing and recording process as well as the inner working of the band at the time of creating the songs. 'Projector' will feature the extra track 'Exposure' — previously unreleased in Japan — and 'Haven' will be graced with 'Cornered' as bonus song."
DARK TRANQUILLITY and THE HAUNTED will team up for the "The Double Titans Tour In Japan" in January. Confirmed dates are as follows:
Jan. 16 - Osaka, JPN - Big Cat
Jan. 17 - Nagoya, JPN - Club Quattro
Jan. 18 - Tokyo, JPN - O-East
DARK TRANQUILLITY's new album, "Fiction", was released in April via Century Media Records. The CD was mixed by Tue Madsen (HIMSA, THE HAUNTED) and "encompasses all of the elements on which the band built their career: thought-provoking lyrics, shredding guitar work, captivating melodies and sheer brutality," according to a press release.
