DARK TRANQUILLITY is currently on the road in the U.S. with KILLSWITCH ENGAGE and THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA. Vocalist Mikael Stanne states, "So far this tour has been amazing for us. We are now two weeks in and we are only just getting started. Amazing venues and huge crowds. Obviously, we are struggling with winning over some of the fans of KILLSWITCH ENGAGE and THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, but so far I have been positively surprised as to how many are at first skeptical only to two songs in go nuts in the pit. It's a beautiful thing to behold from the stage.
"We have been playing two new songs in the set and they have really got the room moving every single night. I am really looking forward to doing way more of the new album material as we are near release date. Since this is just the start of a very long touring cycle, we are really excited to see that the album is getting rave reviews and the friends we've played it to really love it. It seems to generate a lot of heated discussion, too, which I view as a good sign. With such a diverse album, we are bound to hear all kinds of comments and we always welcome that. Bring on the love/hate fest!"
