THE RING, the Swedish band featuring former HUMANIMAL/GREAT KING RAT guitarist Pontus Norgren, ex-JEKYLL & HYDE frontman Jakob Samuel and ROYAL HUNT/ex-JEKYLL & HYDE guitarist Marcus Jidell (on bass), have posted the following message on their official web site:"We now have received the contract from Sweden Rock Festival and we're playing on June 9 (Thursday). We're also paying at Mondo in Stockholm, Friday, April 22, together with the great band FREAK KITCHEN. (The date will be confirmed in close future). That night we will be recording a live DVD, so you better come down and shake your money makers. Next week we're mixing some of the new stuff for the next album, it¹s going to be thunderous, magical, mega heavy, dramatic, spectacular and magnificent one!!!"
