Danish hard rockers D-A-D have announced plans to play a special "top-secret" concert on May 3 at an as-yet-undisclosed location in Copenhagen. Tickets to the show, which will serve as a warm-up for the band's summer festival appearances, will only be available to members of the band's free online community (dubbed the "Net Pet Community"). More information can be found at www.d-a-d.dk.
As previously reported, D-A-D will be releasing a new live DVD/CD package, entitled "Scare Yourself Alive", on May 8 via EMI. The package will feature memorable moments from the band's "Scare Yourself Alive" tour, including footage from the Roskilde Festival and additional material from the November 2005 show at the KB Hallen in Copenhagen, Denmark. More information will be made available soon.
D-A-D recently completed work on the third video from their latest album, "Scare Yourself". The clip, for the song "Lawrence of Suburbia", marked the first time the band have used a fully animated video for one of their tracks since "ZCMI" from the 1989 album "No Fuel Left for the Pilgrims".
The group's ninth studio album, "Scare Yourself" topped the album chart in Denmark upon its release in May 2005.
D-A-D's previous CD, "Soft Dogs", was officially certified gold (25,000 copies sold) in Denmark within four days of its release in February 2002. The album had shifted 32,000 copies domestically less than a week after it was issued.
