NIGHTINGALE — the Swedish band featuring acclaimed musician/producer Dan Swanö and his brother Dag — will play a free show on June 12 at Startskottet in Finspång, Sweden. Also scheduled to appear is DAWN OF SILENCE.
NIGHTINGALE's sixth album, "White Darkness", was released in June 2007 via Black Mark.
The CD was recorded at a big theater, with many of the songs having been tracked as live as can be in the studio, giving them that little extra spark of life often missing in modern productions.
The term "White Darkness" is an expression that lead singer and lyricist Dan Swanö used to describe the state of mind he was in during the aftermath of his divorce. Most of his lyrics on this album are diaries from months of soul searching. During this dark period Dan did not write much music, so his older brother Dag Swanö (formerly known as Tom Nouga) stepped in, armed to his teeth with killer songs from the past and the present.
Jukka Penttinen of Get In The Pit TV conducted an interview with NIGHTINGALE prior to the group's March 20, 2008 concert at Nosturi, Helsinki, Finland. Watch the first part of the interview below.
