FACE DOWN: In Songwriting Mode

September 6, 2004

FACE DOWN, the reunited Swedish outfit featuring former THE HAUNTED singer Marco Aro, are currently in "songwriting mode and rehearsing will be resumed properly in early September," according to the group's latest newsletter. "If everything pans out the way we want it, we're gonna record three or four songs for a demo in October," the band write. "It will feature a brand new track called 'Strife', as well as a couple of reworked older tracks. If we find the time we'll squeeze another new tune on it as well." Joining Aro in the new lineup are original members, bassist Joakim (Harju) Hedestedt (ex-CONSTRUCDEAD) and guitarist Joacim Carlsson (GENERAL SURGERY),plus new drummer Erik Thyselius (CONSTRUCDEAD, TERROR 2000).

FACE DOWN's forthcoming album, due in early 2005 through Sweden's Black Lodge Records, will feature brand new material, as well as reworked versions of some unreleased old tracks.

In other news, FACE DOWN have been confirmed for the 2005 edition of the 2000 Decibel Festival, tentatively set to take place next May in Bengtsfors, Sweden (180 km north of Gothenburg).
