Swedish melodic death/thrash metal band THE BEREAVED — which recently recruited American singer Travis Neal (PERSQUAREINCH, PUSHED) to handle the vocals on the group's new album, "Daylight Deception", due in the summer via Vic Records — has issued the following update:
"We are planning a big CD-release party in Örebro. We are trying to plan it for this summer at Satin. We really love that place and the people that show up there!
"We have some things in the works for this year as well. We may possibly be on a U.S. tour in August. It's still in the works so nothing is set in stone yet. But we will keep you all posted as more on that comes to light!!
"We are looking forward to meeting our U.S. fans and having some drinks with them!! Also looking [at] a possible 10-day tour in July. The dates will be disclosed to you all when we lock that in.
"As for other things, as you all know, we shot a video for the first single, 'Alter the Image'. The video should be out by the end of the month. It is in the editing process right now. Also, the record has been sent to Mr. Swanö for the mixing and mastering process. It should be done by then end of the month as well.
"As for now, Travis is back in the U.S. handling our affairs out there while we are handling them here. By doing this we should be able to hit all of our countries as well as the U.S."
"Daylight Deception" will feature 10 tracks, "some of [which] you may have heard and some [of which] will be new," according to the band. "All the songs have been re-written with new vocal patterns and lyrics, except for 'Skeleteen' and 'Zero of the Day'. Those two songs will have the same lyrics but with new patterns."
