DARK TRANQUILLITY Sets Record Straight About Bootleg Compilation

Swedish melodic death metallers DARK TRANQUILLITY have issued the following update:

"The [DARK TRANQUILLITY] compilation album 'A Closer End' that recently started appearing on the P2P networks as well as on eBay and in certain record stores, is NOT an official DARK TRANQUILLITY album but a bootleg. It's very convincingly made, with a Century Media logo, fake barcode and extensive booklet, but it's nevertheless a bootleg. It's usually a better strategy to be silent about these things, but as a lot of people keep mailing us asking whether 'A Closer End' is a genuine album or not, and since the CD has started to appear on online discographies, presented as a legitimate release, we feel the need to set the record straight."

Italian news blog Musica Metal recently posted video footage of DARK TRANQUILLITY performing on July 11, 2008 at the Evolution Festival in Milan, Italy. Watch the clip below.

Century Media Records reissued DARK TRANQUILLITY's latest album, "Fiction", in May an expanded edition in conjunction with the start of the band's recently completed North American tour. The new version is composed of a CD/DVD and features a slew of new material.
