Danish metallers RAUNCHY have issued the following update:
"2006 has been a great year for RAUNCHY with the release and great response [to] 'Death Pop Romance', great festival appearances, the SOULFLY tour, The Danish Dynamite tour, the prizes we won at the Danish Metal Awards and all the fans who appreciate what we do — thank you.
"2007 will start off with more songwriting for album number 4, which hopefully will see the light of day around autumn/winter 2007. Our old label Mighty Music/Drugs has decided to re-release the classic debut album 'Velvet Noise' in February/March. This re-release will be called 'Velvet Noise Extended' and features four bonus tracks and new artwork with liner notes... More info here.
"So far the first live appearance for 2007 will take RAUNCHY to Moscow, Russia... and more dates will soon be announced.
"Pictures from the recent killer trip to Estonia are up here."
A video clip of RAUNCHY performing the track "Phantoms" from their latest album, "Death Pop Romance" on November 10, 2006 at Train in Århus, Debnmark has been posted online at YouTube.com.
"Death Pop Romance" was released earlier in the year through Lifeforce Records. The CD was recorded last summer by Jacob Hansen (MERCENARY, FEAR MY THOUGHTS, COMMUNIC) at Hansen studio in Robe, Denmark and was mixed by Tue Madsen at Antfarm Studios (HATESPHERE, THE HAUNTED, MNEMIC) in Aarhus, Denmark. The album marks the recording debut with the group of new singer Kasper Thomsen, who replaced Lars Vognstrup in 2004. An e-card, featuring selections from "Death Pop Romance", can be accessed at this location. A full-length MP3 of the track "Remembrance" can be downloaded here (5 MB).
RAUNCHY split with Nuclear Blast Records in January 2005 after releasing two albums through the label (2002's "Velvet Noise" and 2004's "Confusion Bay").
