THEATRE OF TRAGEDY Celebrate 10-Year Anniversary

Norway's THEATRE OF TRAGEDY have posted the following message on their web site:

"Well, today, it is exactly 10 years since we had our first practice together of what would be known as THEATRE OF TRAGEDY.

"It was a dark and misty October night and we drove in our then band van, Raymond's Ford Transit with the hypnotizing ceiling pattern to a rehearsal room outside Stavanger. After that first rehearsal we actually came up with something called a song ('Lament Of The Perishing Roses') and from there on we just went with the flow.

"During these years as most of you know, we've been through a lot of changes musically and also regarding the line up. We have experienced much and developed even more during these years and we still feel we have lots to contribute with. One might say that looking back to the beginning and the intensions of playing in this band caused some of the recent events.

"The fine line of finding the joy and combining that with the work demanded to bring together so many different persons as a whole. It has been a struggle, but no more than it has been a delight for all of us still in the band and hopefully for those not with us anymore.

"In retrospect we've have been lucky, to say the least, to be in the position we have been and are in. We feel a lot of gratitude towards the people that have been at our concerts, bought our albums, listened to our songs and made all this possible for us.

"But that said, we are still working hard to bring you more music and hopefully lots of new shows for you to experience in the future.

"Thank you for giving us your valuable time! Cheers, and here is for another 10 years, if we still have our hearing!

"Raymond, Lorentz, Hein, Frank and Vegard

"As treat for you to celebrate this occasion, you can download the unreleased 'Let you Down' (Rico Darum and Superdead remix) here. (Please don't tell the record label…..)"
