Dark Tranquillity - New Album Out Early Next Year

The following statement has been released on the official Dark Tranquillity website:

"Time to let you in on the plans for our upcoming ninth (or tenth, depending on how you count) full-length album. The as-yet-untitled beast will be recorded in September and October and released in early 2010 through Century media records.

We'll keep the recording setup completely in-house this time. Drums will be tracked in Daniel Antonsson's studio, while the remaining instruments will be immortalized in Martin Brändström's newly renovated Rogue music facilities. The mixing duties will once again be handled by Tue Madsen in his Antfarm studio in Denmark.

As for the music itself, it's a bit too early to delve into details, but the material feels diverse and fresh and covers all the facets of the D.T. sound. Those who are familiar with our songwriting process know that we always keep re-arranging and experimenting with the material until the recording starts, and while we currently have the basic foundations for around 10 songs, many things are still open. The final result is likely to surprise ourselves as well as you people.

Some tentative song titles are "I Am The Void", "Zero Distance", "The Burden Of Love Alive", "Archangelsk" and "Memories In Reverse", though these are subject to change as usual.

Well, more news will follow in due time..."

Kittie - New Record Deal And New Album

E1 Music announces the addition of Canada's Kittie to its heavy metal roster. Under this worldwide deal, Kittie will release three albums for the label.
Kittie (Morgan Lander - vocals and guitar, Mercedes Lander - drums, Tara McLeod - guitar, and Ivy Vujic - bass guitar) have released four studio albums during its career which have sold collectively over 1,250,000 copies. The band's new album, "In The Black", is slated for release on September 15, 2009. Some new songs on the album are "Cut Throat, "Sorrow I Know" and "My Plague."

Kittie vocalist Morgan Lander says: "We are totally thrilled and honored to be working with Scott Givens and to now be part of the E1 family. We have been hard at work for the past few months perfecting our latest musical offering and are pleased with the final result of "In The Black". It is everything that Kittie is supposed to be: heavy, fast, brash and nasty, yet at times introspective, feminine and emotional. One thing it is not, however, is compromising of the sound and style that we have come to be known for. This shit is HEAVY! Our new label pairing with E1 will actualize the vision that we have held constant over the years for the band."

E1 Music VP of Metal Scott Givens adds, "As a band, Kittie truly is a one of a kind powerhouse. I know I speak for everyone at E1 Music when I say how excited we are to be working with them and launching "In The Black" to the masses."

Currently the band is working on Fall tour plans and will be shooting two videos during the month of July.
