WAITING FOR STEVE
TOURNIQUET released a live DVD in August 2006, entitled "Till Sverige Med Kärlek" (To Sweden With Love). The disc, which has a running time of over 100 minutes, was recorded on March 12, 2005 at the Bobfest 2005 in Linköping, Sweden, and "is by far the best-quality live TOURNIQUET footage we have ever had — both in terms of the video (four cameras) and audio," the band previously stated. "The crowd was awesome too! There [are] songs included that have never been on any live TOURNIQUET video or DVD before — 'The Tomb of Gilgamesh' and 'Skeezix Part II', to name a couple. Also included [are] songs from 'Where Moth and Rust Destroy', and of course, some old favorites."
TOURNIQUET is currently working on new studio album, tentatively due in 2008. The band's last studio release, 2003's "Where Moth and Rust Destroy" (Metal Blade), featured special guest appearances by guitarists Marty Friedman (ex-MEGADETH) and Bruce Franklin (TROUBLE).
