It has now been revealed that shortly before beginning the studio sessions for the upcoming 10th studio album Construct, Dark Tranquillity has amicably parted ways with bassist Daniel Antonsson and the main reason is that Daniel wanted to focus on his own musical projects as well as working more in his recording studio. Being first and foremost a guitarist, he felt that the playing bass in a full-time band didn't allow him much time for his main instrument and true passion.
Who wants to know more about Dark Tranquillity's new album? We are here to help and no, this is not fiction. The Gothenburg metal kings just announced that their new album will have the title Construct. Not only that but it will be out on May 27th in Europe and on May 28th in North America through Century Media Records. This will also be the band's 10th studio album. Jens Bogren will mix the new release and the band will soon enter the studio.
In what will probably be disappointing to many fans, Dark Tranquillity has just confirmed the cancellation of their upcoming European tour dubbed Metal Attack Over Europe that was scheduled to start next week.
Swedish gothenburg legends Dark Tranquillity will digitally release their Zero Distance EP on October 22nd in North America via Century Media. The songs come from the European tour edition of We Are The Void (2010). Dark Tranquillity is currently working on their 10th studio album, tentatively set for a summer 2013 release via Century Media Records.
Swedish gothenburg kings Dark Tranquillity will return to Europe at the end of the year for the last leg of the We Are The Void tour on their Metal Attack Over Europe tour with the company on stage of Keep Of Kalessin, Warbringer, Dawn Heist and Reign Of The Architect. This tour will also allow the band to take a break from the pre-production work of the upcoming new album expected to be released next year.
Century Media Records have renewed their deal for the 3rd time with Swedish melodic death metal legends, Dark Tranquillity. The influential band from Gothenburg released their first album on Century Media Records in 1999 and since then have released 6 albums plus 2 DVDs and a handful of special releases.
"In My Absence", the new video from Swedish metallers Dark Tranquillity, can be viewed at this location.

"In My Absence" comes off the band's latest album, We Are The Void, which was released on February 2010 via Century Media Records.
