THE BLACK LEAGUE, the Finnish band fronted by former SENTENCED vocalist Taneli Jarva, have lined up the following dates during the coming months:

Apr. 19 – Yano – Järvenpää, FIN
Apr. 29 – Kipsari – Helsinki, FIN
May 19 – Rytmikatti - Kouvola Thur, FIN

As previously reported, THE BLACK LEAGUE have posted their video for the song "Same Ol' Fuckery" at this location. The track comes off the group's fourth full-length album, "A Place Called Bad", which was released in Finland in October via WolfGang Records/MajorLeidén Productions.

The follow-up to 2004's "Man's Ruin Revisited", "A Place Called Bad" was recorded at Seawolf Studios in Suomenlinna (just outside Helsinki). The band have undergone several major lineup changes in the last few months, resulting in the departure of both drummer "Sir" Kimmo Luttinen and basist Mikko "Florida" Laurila. Relocated in Helsinki, Jarva and guitarist Maike Valanne have enlisted Hiltunen, Rale (drums) and I.T. (bass), while also bringing in original guitar player Alexi Ranta to play guest lead guitar on one song.
