The Haunted: Launch new song "My Enemy"; Announce Scandinavian live-dates!
Having just returned from a successful return to stages at the 70,000 Tons Of Metal cruise in the Caribbean, Sweden's Metal pioneers THE HAUNTED are now debuting another new song from the recently released 3-track single "Eye Of The Storm" online. The single released by Century Medias Records marks THE HAUNTED's recording debut in their revamped line-up announced last summer, featuring 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 have checked in with the following comment about their current activity:
"After having found our feet as a band onstage at last week's 70,000 Tons Of Metal festival, it is now time to bring the mayhem home to Scandinavia. First show of the tour will hit Gothenburg (I mean, where else, right?) followed up by a string of shows in Sweden, Norway and Finland. The reception of the three new songs from our newly released EP "Eye of the Storm" at 70K was amazing, so expect them to be played, together with a truckload of other hard-hitters. We can't wait to get back out there playing shows again, and we'll make sure it has been worth your while sticking around for us through thick and thin. See you all somewhere along the road!"
