Swedish metallers The Haunted have released the following statement regarding the departure of guitarist Anders Björler and drummer Per Möller Jensen: "It's with deep regret we have to inform you of another two departures from The Haunted, guitarist Anders Björler and drummer Per Möller Jensen. No animosity whatsoever caused these events, nor are there any other feelings than that they will both be dearly missed. We wish them all the best in whatever and wherever their future endeavors will take them."
Vocalist Peter Dolving has announced that he has officially left Swedish thrash metallers The Haunted. In the following post on his Facebook page, Dolving explicitly said he will not divulge the reasons for his departure: "I am officially quitting The Haunted. After years of working with the band, I am out. I have had it. I will not answer questions to why. It's no one else's business. Thank you very much. I am looking forward to seeing you people at other shows with other projects."
The band has also released the following statement on their official website confirming the departure: "Peter has decided to leave The Haunted permanently. We don't have any more news or info for you regarding this at the moment, but stay tuned for future updates... We just wanted to put and end to all the rumors out there."

Vocalist Peter Dolving has issued the following update on the new The Haunted album:
"So the work's done. We hope to pour music and inspiration into your heads. The record is called Unseen and will be hitting stores in March 2011 (via Century Media Records). We spent a month and a half with Tue Madsen, who brought out the best in everyone and did an incredible job mixing."
Unseen was recorded in October at Antfarm Studio, Denmark. Studio reports can be found at this location.
Swedish thrashers The Haunted have announced signing a new worldwide deal with Century Media Records after a successful partnership for the band's last three albums (rEVOLVEr, The Dead Eye, Versus).
The Haunted's Peter Dolving (vocals) comments: "So once again we've decided to sign with Century Media Records. It feels good to get continuation, and truly having worked hard on communication on both ends over these last years, has brought us together in ways that I believe a lot of bands/managements/labels only dream of. Long term goals, open agendas, and a Norse/German stubborn attitude seem to be something we find a mutual trust and strength in and we're really looking forward to a continued cooperation with our friends/partners at Century Media. It is a strange thing this, the business of music, but like everything else, it seems to come down to hard work, earnestness, straight talk and respect. So here's to many more years of churning out metal to the masses. Peace!"
