Finnish doom metallers SWALLOW THE SUN check in with the following update post-tour update:
"So, friends around the planet, it's time to summarize the New Moon tours of 2009 - 2010 and pick up the pieces of our gloomy and broken bones from countless stages, backstages, buses, hotels, bars, planes and police stations, giving huge thanks to all of you for making the New Moon tours the most successful tours so far for us! Thank you for coming to the shows, buying merchandise, believing in us and supporting the music!
Once again we toured more than ever before, and this time we brought the Finnish winter to 24 different countries, playing 146 shows in total after the album release. During the New Moon touring period we completed three European tours, two North American tours, played many summer festivals and also had the pleasure to play in Israel and Romania for the first time.
In 2010 we also made an endorsement deal with D'Addario strings, Planet Waves cables and Evans drum skins, and we are more than happy to be part of the D'Addario family from now on.
So this year, 2011, we are going to keep things a bit more quiet and start preparing for the next Swallow The Sun album, which will be released at the end of this year or in the beginning of 2012... yeah, if the world doesn't end! Ten new songs are already in the works, but we are not going to rush with recording, album release or new tours because our bodies, hair and especially livers just can't handle it yet, folks!!
We might do a few selected shows and festivals this year if it fits in with our plans, but otherwise this year is going to be a dark road of solitude towards new depths of gloom, beauty and despair – the sixth chapter of Swallow the Sun.
Long, dark winter wishes to everybody."
In late 2009, Swallow The Sun's latest album, New Moon, entered the official Finnish Top 40 Charts at #10.
