The single marks THE HAUNTED‘s recording debut in their revamped line-up announced last summer, featuring founding members Jensen (Guitars) and Jonas Björler (Bass), returning members Marco Aro (Vocals) and Adrian Erlandsson (Drums) as well as new member Ola Englund (Guitars).
THE HAUNTED‘s Jensen checked in to comment about the upcoming release as follows: “There aren’t superlatives enough to describe how much the band has longed for these three songs to be released. We are sure fans have been anxious to know what the band sounds like today after all the turmoil and old members leaving and new members joining. We feel that these three songs represent the band perfectly. We are currently working on the new album, an album that will be filled to the brim with what we know to be “The Haunted”. We’ll start doing gigs this spring and we’ll do festivals all over the place this summer. Get in touch with the festivals you visit (and behave like an animal at) and tell them to get us on the bill! The Haunted is back. Play it loud. No. Louder.”
THE HAUNTED, who are currently busy working on their upcoming studio album release expected for Summer 2014, will be celebrating their long awaited return to stages and debut the revamped line-up by taking part of the upcoming 70,000 Tons Of Metal cruise, which runs from January 27th to 31st, 2014 going from Miami to Costa Maya in Mexico and back to Miami. Other bands appearing include Carcass, Cynic, Dark Tranquillity, Death Angel, Death (To All), Fear Factory, Finntroll, Obituary, Orphaned Land, Satyricon and many more.
