Norway's TRAIL OF TEARS have posted the following message on their official web site:

"We would like to inform [everyone] that after contributing on the last two albums, Kjetil Nordhus of GREEN CARNATION is now officially a full-time member of TRAIL OF TEARS! We are thrilled to announce that Kjetil will be with us both on future recordings and tours. As a result of this and a general disagreement about future plans we are also announcing that Cathrine Paulsen has decided to leave the band. There is no more drama attached to this, we have simply different views about the future of the band. At the moment we are locked up in the studio and will spend the next two-three months making this the best album so far."

TRAIL OF TEARS were due to enter Dub Studio earlier this month with producer Endre Kirkesola (GREEN CARNATION, BLOOD RED THRONE) to begin recording their fourth, as-yet-untitled album. The band's follow-up to 2002's "A New Dimension of Might" is tentatively due this summer through Napalm Records.

As previously reported, TRAIL OF TEARS recently recorded a version of DEAD CAN DANCE's "The Arcane" for the upcoming DEAD CAN DANCE double-CD tribute album, "The Lotuseaters". The set, which will be released through Greece's Black Lotus Records, will include additional appearances by such acts as THE GATHERING, ULVER, GREEN CARNATION, SEPTIC FLESH, HELENA IREN MICHAELSEN (IMPERIA, ex-TRAIL OF TEARS) and ANTIMATTER.
