SOILWORK Frontman: 'Thanks For Rocking Out'

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

"Sitting in a very dark and cold dressing room in Houston at the Meridian. I got very surprised when I got up this morning and felt how cold it was outside... Is it usually as cold as this in Texas?! I know it's going towards the end of November but still... Anyways, still having a lot of fucking fun on this tour, had a day off in New Orleans yesterday. We saw all the devastation when we drove into the city, boats lying in the middle of the road, fragments of what used to be a peaceful community.. it was scary to see the terrible outcome after Katrina passed by, just two months earlier (as you might remember, we were in Memphis that day). What I could also see was that the city is after all getting back on its feet again (which of course made us very happy) so we decided to go downtown to support the nightlife and spend some money on bar-hopping (at least something, right!?). Had a good time down there drinking the all time classic Handgrenade and went to see some awesome live bands. I hope they will start up the House of Blues soon again so that we can come down again and play some of that Swedish metal once again. Also a big hail to DAMIEN STORM for hanging out with us, had a blast!!

"Other than that not much to say. A really great tour so far, shitloads of people and great circlepits every night. Thanks for rocking out people and keep em coming."

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).
