The "Jack of Diamonds" video from Swedish metallers SONIC SYNDICATE has been viewed more than one million times on YouTube. The clip, which can be seen below, was shot with director Patric Ullaeus (DIMMU BORGIR, LACUNA COIL) of Revolver Film Company. Ullaeus previously worked with the band on the two clips that accompanied SONIC SYNDICATE's 2007 release, "Only Inhuman".
SONIC SYNDICATE recently finished filming two new videos — for the ballad "Contradiction" as well as the heavy track "Powershift" — with director Marius Böttcher of Quent Film. Check out photos from the video shoot at Metal-Hammer.de. Both songs come off the band's latest album, "Love And Other Disasters", which landed at position No. 15 on the Swedish and No. 36 on the German chart back in September.
SONIC SYNDICATE will team up with fellow Swedes DEATHSTARS for a co-headlining tour of Europe in February/March 2009.
Commented SONIC SYNDICATE bassist Karin Axelsson: "Today we finally confirmed our first tour of 2009 and have decided to team up with with fellow Swedes DEATHSTARS for a double-headline tour across Europe. We're looking forward to sharing the stage with them, having a great time and meeting all the great supporters of both bands throughout Europe. The Swedish mafia continues to cross borders in high gear across Europe. Beware!"
"Eden Fire", the debut album from SONIC SYNDICATE, was re-released in the U.S. and Canada on December 9, 2008 through Pivotal Rockordings via Koch Distribution. The LP was originally issued on September 13, 2005.
