SOILWORK Frontman Offers Post-European Tour Update

SOILWORK vocalist Björn "Speed" Strid has posted the following message on the band's official web site:

"We came home from the European tour three days ago… I tell you, we had such a blast on the road with our friends in HATESPHERE and CONSTRUCDEAD. All the shows had a really great vibe and almost every venue was packed. I wanna thank both HATESPHERE and CONSTRUCDEAD guys for making it a very memorable trip. Last but not least, all the people coming to the shows, you guys are the best!!!

"I also want to send some special cred to the CONSTRUCDEAD guys since they've been my friends for like ten years, you guys rock! It was also a great experience to have my very best friend Jens Broman (singer in CONSTRUCDEAD) with me on the road for the first time. We grew up and discovered metal together, I will never forget this moment for as long as I live (we did it, bro!!)

"I'm leaving for Japan tomorrow with my family… First 'real' vacation in 5 years, it'll be great since my parents has never really travelled and haven't been flying for about 25 years... It's time to get my dad into the 'evil' Japanese Yamazaki whisky hehe…

"As you know, the North American tour is around the corner as well. I actually met the DARKANE guys today down at the station on their way to the airport. I tell you, those guys are up for the ride and are psyched to blast Americas ears. It'll be a good tour... some kind of a monster drummer festival, right?

"See you on tour soon..."

SOILWORK are continuing to tour in support of their latest CD, "Stabbing the Drama", available now on Nuclear Blast Records. The follow-up to 2003's "Figure Number Five" was recorded at Fascination Street studios in Örebro and Dug-Out Productions in Uppsala, Sweden with producer Daniel Bergstrand (MESHUGGAH, IN FLAMES, STUCK MOJO).
