Doom metal legends CANDLEMASS and TROUBLE will join forces for a short Swedish tour in September. The dates are as follows:
Sep. 26 - Malmö, SWE @ KB
Sep. 27 - Gothenburg, SWE @ Trädgårn
Sep. 28 - Stockholm, SWE @ Debaser Medis
"Death Magic Doom", the new album from CANDLEMASS, debuted at No. 79 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
"Death Magic Doom" entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 52. The group's previous CD, "King of the Grey Islands", debuted at No. 83 back in June 2007.
TROUBLE is hard at work on material for the band's long-awaited new album, "The Dark Riff", tentatively due later in the year. The group states, "Everything is moving along nicely in the writing stage. Bruce [Franklin; guitar] and Rick [Wartell; guitar] have brought some massive, killer riffs to the sessions that are sure to please ANY TROUBLE fan. The sessions are proving to be a very creative environment, and are spawning the band's creative juices where every last riff seems to get heavier than the last. As of this date the music for fourteen songs is complete. The vocals are coming in a bit at a time and sounding incredible. The band seems to be clicking on all cylinders now, and there's no end in sight. This is definitely going to be worth the wait!"
TROUBLE's recently released live album, "Live In L.A.", was recorded in Los Angeles and is available at NewTrouble.com.
