The DARKANE Family Is Growing

Swedish thrashers DARKANE have posted the following message on their official web site:

"Good news and bad news....

"Unfortunately, DARKANE will not be able to perform at the {S}Hammer Metal Festival in Castel Volturna, Italy on September 3rd as previously advertised on the festival's website. After careful consideration, the band have decided not to perform at this festival, but with very good reason. DARKANE wish to extend their deepest apologies to all of the fans who have shown their excitement and support for this performance and also to the organizers, however, brace yourself for the reason why...

"The DARKANE family is growing, and at rapid speed! At the end of August, Peter [Wildoer, drums] is expecting his first child! Peter and the band felt that it was too risky to attempt missing the birth of his baby as the date of the festival and the date of the birth are far too close together. Everyone in the DARKANE camp wish Peter nothing less than all of the luck in the world and hope that everyone understands the reason for pulling out of the {S}Hammer Metal Fest.

"But that's not all... I said the DARKANE family was growing at rapid speed...

"On December 30th, our own Christofer Malmström will also become a father! I suppose the recording of the far beyond phenominal 'Layers of Lies' truly inspired our boys in more ways than one! Again, we all wish to extend to Christofer all of our support and happiness for what he and Peter are about to embark on.

"In other news, tour plans are in the works so please be on the look out for that, as well as some one off shows here and there to get these guys out and on stage again. It's about time, wouldn't you agree? In the meantime, there's no excuse why everyone in Europe shouldn't own 'Layers of Lies' by now. As for our friends on the other side of the pond, I'm sure you're already camping out anticipating the North American release July 12th."

As previously reported, the Japanese version of "Layers of Lies" will contain a bonus track, entitled "Subliminal Seduction".

DARKANE's last studio album, "Expanding Senses", was released in 2002.
