THE HAUNTED To Support SLAYER In Europe

According to Slayerized.com, Swedish metallers THE HAUNTED will support SLAYER on their upcoming European tour, which kicks off on November 18 in Nottingham, England.

Commented THE HAUNTED frontman Peter Dolving: "This is great beyond words. Since the very first THE HAUNTED record we've enjoyed great support from SLAYER and we've talked many times about how cool it would be to support our favorite band in the world. SLAYER are without competition the one band that's inspired and motivated us over the years. In many ways SLAYER personify the measure by which we live and act as a band, and to finally get to head out with these dudes is awesome, and fucking beautiful! This is going to be utter complete fucking mayhem!"

THE HAUNTED cancelled its previously announced U.K. tour (October 29 - November 4) with CASINO BRAWL and ROMEO MUST DIE as a result of "some very special circumstances," according to a statement released by the band. "We are very sad about this, and wish to apologize beforehand for any inconvenience this will cause," the group added.

Dolving recently told the German edition of the Metal Hammer magazine that the band has commenced the songwriting process for a new album. "Looking at the ideas that we're coming up with, looking at the stuff that we're doodling around with, it's gonna be a very heavy and it's gonna be a very strange record," he said. "It's gonna be like a continuation of what we started experimenting with both on 'rEVOLVEr' [2004] and on 'The Dead Eye' [2006], so it'll be eclectic and hard. 'Cause around the time of 'The Dead Eye', we felt that we really needed to do something that we hadn't done that we really wanted to do, and we got a lot of critique for it; a lot of people didn't like it. We loved it, and the songs that we're playing off that record are going over really well with the audience and we're really enjoying to play them. So we figure, why the fuck shouldn't we play and continue to try and evolve as musicians and songwriters?! And that's what we'll do."

THE HAUNTED is continuing to tour in support of its latest album, "Versus", which entered the Swedish chart at position No. 14 and the Finnish chart at No. 12.The CD was recorded in part at PUK studio in Denmark with producer Tue Madsen (HEAVEN SHALL BURN, DARK TRANQUILLITY, MOONSPELL, etc), who previously worked with the group on its two previous LPs, "rEVOLVEr" and "The Dead Eye".
