PAIN mainman Peter Tägtgren (also of HYPOCRISY) has issued the following quick update:"We had a looooong tour/party (October 11th-December 5th) and it's been a lot of fun (hick!). Met a lot of people, drank alot of drinks and we wanna thank you all for coming to the gigs. We were also one of the first non-Russian bands to do a real Russian tour, which was one of the highlights in my music career with PAIN. So much craziness in a positive way and I hope it wasn't the last time. Now it's time to write new songs... and get ready for the NIGHTWISH tour in February 2008. I'm sure it will be science-fiction. Thank you once again and see you soon." Russia's Darkside e-zine has posted video footage of PAIN performing the song "Bitch" on November 24, 2007 at Club Shadow in Moscow. Watch the clip below.

HeadBanger.ru PAIN's current touring lineup includes guitarist Marcus Jidell (ROYAL HUNT, HOUSE OF SHAKIRA). A few days before the gig, PAIN's latest full-length album, "Psalms of Extinction", was issued in Russia by Mazzar/Mystic Empire Records. This version is said to be "the fullest and most interesting for collectors," as, apart from the original album's 12 tracks, it includes the Japanese bonus track "Behind the Wheel", as well as an exclusive song, "Here Comes the Hero". IN FLAMES bassist Peter Iwers makes a guest appearance on two songs on "Psalms of Extinction". A video clip of PAIN performing the track "Zombie Slam" on the Swedish morning show "Nyhetsmorgon" on TV4 on April 17 has been posted online at this location. PAIN's video for the track "Zombie Slam" is available for viewing at this location. The clip was shot late February in Los Angeles by Ralf Strathmann. Ralf previously worked as a director for artists like CHILDREN OF BODOM, APOCALYPTICA and SOILWORK. He is also a photographer for such bands as H.I.M., AEROSMITH and BLINK 182, to name but a few.
