Swedish "pop/metal" band DEAD BY APRIL will release its sophomore album in May via Spinefarm Records. Produced by Swedish studio-meister Jacob Hellner (RAMMSTEIN) at his own Big Island Studio in Stockholm, the CD will be mixed by fellow RAMMSTEIN regular Stefan Glaumann and will feature the session guitar work of Pontus Hjelm, who left DEAD BY APRIL last year to focus more on the writing and production side; his songs (including "More Than Yesterday"; the demo version of which appeared on the compilation mini-album "Stronger", recently released via Spinefarm) will also be included, providing the all-important continuity with the self-titled debut, a Top 2 outing in Sweden.
Commented the band: "The new recordings are almost complete, and we're delighted with the way they're turning out — they are WAY beyond anything we've done before, smashing our debut! Jacob Hellner is now giving us the heaviness we've always craved… We are super-excited, and can't wait for our fans, and everyone else, to hear the results!"
DEAD BY APRIL's self-titled debut album, was released in the U.K. on August 3, 2009 via Spinefarm. Issued in Sweden on May 13, 2009 via Universal, the CD was produced by Henrik Edenhed, who has previously worked with ROBYN, LAMBRETTA, TEDDYBEARS, CHRISTIAN WALTZ and THE SOUNDS.
