Eye Of The Storm marks THE HAUNTED's recording debut of the band's revamped line-up, which includes founding members Jensen (Guitars) and Jonas Björler (Bass), returning members Marco Aro (Vocals) and Adrian Erlandsson (Drums), as well as new member Ola Englund (Guitars).
THE HAUNTED's Jensen comments: "There aren't superlatives enough to describe how much the band has longed for these three songs to be released. We are sure fans have been anxious to know what the band sounds like today after all the turmoil and old members leaving and new members joining. We feel that these three songs represent the band perfectly. We are currently working on the new album, an album that will be filled to the brim with what we know to be 'THE HAUNTED'. We'll start doing gigs this spring and we'll do festivals all over the place this summer. Get in touch with the festivals you visit (and behave like an animal at) and tell them to get us on the bill! THE HAUNTED is back. Play it loud. No. Louder."
THE HAUNTED is currently working on their upcoming studio album, expected for a summer 2014 release. For another preview of the new line-up, be sure to check out the following videos:
