Swedish metallers EVERGREY are inviting fans to submit questions for the group's Finnish bassist Jari Kainulainen (ex-STRATOVARIUS), who joined the band a few months ago. "You have eight days to send in the questions; the deadline is Sunday, January 27," says the group in an online posting. "After that date, the 20 best questions will be picked and sent to Jari for answering. After he is done answering, the interview will go up on MySpace and there will be a bulletin posted about it."For more information, visit the EVERGREY MySpace page. EVERGREY recently posted the sixth video studio report from the recording sessions for their new album. Watch the nine-minute clip below. As previously reported, EVERGREY has announced the following dates in the northern part of Sweden:
Jan. 25 - Sundsvall, SWE @ Club Destroyer
Jan. 26 - Östersund, SWE @ Tingshuset
Jan. 27 - Örebro, SWE @ Satin
Commented vocalist/guitarist Tom S. Englund: "We have always had a great time when we have played at the summer festivals in northern Sweden. This will be our first visit in wintertime and we are very much looking forward to this. Look out polar bears, here we come!"
As previously reported, EVERGREY is documenting the recording process for the follow-up to 2006's "Monday Morning Apocalypse" for a forthcoming DVD, to be released sometime next year. According to the band, the final result will be "an in-depth look on how the whole recording went, with all the fuck-ups, conversations etc. It's not going to be [EVERGREY's version of the METALLICA documentary] 'Some Kind of Monster' since we dont have the fundings, but nevertheless." Jari made his live debut with the band at Fosen Rock festival in Fosen, Norway on August 25, 2007. EVERGREY is currently seeking a new label home after splitting with Inside Out Music following the release of "Monday Morning Apocalypse". EVERGREY's last CD, "Monday Morning Apocalypse" was recorded at Division One Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden by the experienced production team of Sanken Sandquist and Stefan Glaumann, who have previously worked with such artists as RAMMSTEIN, BON JOVI, BRITNEY SPEARS and DEF LEPPARD.
