DEATHSTARS Confirmed For DAS BOOT Stockholm-Helsinki Ferry Trip

Swedish industrial goth metal band DEATHSTARS has been confirmed to perform on the Das Boot ferry trip between Stockholm and Helsinki on December 7-8, 2006.

As previously reported, Swiss band STONEMAN has been confirmed as the support act for DEATHSTARS on its "48 Carat Darkness" headlining tour, which is scheduled to kick off in October. In addition, the following bands will perform on select shows: LYZANXIA (France and Switzerland), ENSOPH (Italy), PHANTASMAGORIA (Zagreb), FIRESTORM (Vienna) and CALATHEA (Prague).

DEATHSTARS recently announced the addition of session guitarist Cat for all the upcoming festival gigs and tours this summer and fall. His first gig with the band was at the Close-Up Festival in Stockholm, Sweden on April 15.

The Swedish band, in existence since January 2000, was previously known as SWORDMASTER. DEATHSTARS features in its ranks former DISSECTION drummer Ole Öhman and guitarist Emil Nödtveidt (brother of late DISSECTION leader Jon).

DEATHSTARS has been confirmed as the "special guest" at the sixth annual Bloodstock festival, set to take place September 29-30 at the Assembly Rooms in Derby, England. This will be DEATHSTARS' second and final appearance in the U.K. this year following a sold-out show supporting LACUNA COIL in London back in March.
