Danish thrashers HATESPHERE have issued the following update:
"Saturday the 27th of January we will do a very special show in Copenhagen, Denmark. The event will take place in the venue Lille Vega, and only very few tickets will be set out for sale. This night we will perform the whole new album live in front of world press and dedicated fans. So if you want to be the first to hear it all, you gotta be quick. Tickets will be available through Billetlugen from the 1st of January! We hope you wont miss this special opportunity... see you there!!!
"In other news we have named the new album: 'Serpent Smiles and Killer Eyes'. Be on the look out for it in Europe from April 30th (April 27th in Germany). U.S. and Japan release dates will be announced later."
HATESPHERE will enter the studio on January 5 to begin tracking the new CD. "The drums will be recorded with our old friend Tommy Hansen [HELLOWEEN, PRETTY MAIDS] in his Jailhouse Studios in Horsens, Denmark," the group wrote on its web site. "Guitars, bass and vocals will be done in Jacob's [Bredahl, vocals] Smart 'n' Hard Studios here in Aarhus, while Tue Madsen [THE HAUNTED, HALFORD] will do the mix at his Antfarm Studio."
HATESPHERE's latest CD, "The Sickness Within", was released in the U.S. in September via SPV. The follow-up to 2004's "Ballet of the Brute" was recorded in part at Jailhouse with Tommy Hansen. Guitars and bass were recorded at Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark, with producer Jacob Hansen (RAUNCHY, INVOCATOR).
HATESPHERE recently cancelled its participation in the U.S. tour featuring UNLEASHED, KRISIUN and BELPHEGOR. "It was a very hard decision for us to make, and we apologize to everybody who worked their asses off to get this up and running, but unforeseen stuff got in our way, and caused us to cancel," the band explained at the time. "We will do what we can to get to the U.S. later [next] year to spread the Euro-thrash all over the place."
