Dark Tranquillity: post Where Death Is Most Alive Part II tour statement!
After releasing the much-lauded “We Are The Void” album in February 2010, Swedish melodic death metal legend DARK TRANQUILLITY spent many months on the road to promote the release culminating in the Where Death Is Most Alive Part II European tour. Now, the band has posted the following tour re-cap to conclude one of the most successful years in its entire career:
“What a ride! After having spent most of the year touring other continents and laying to waste innumerable summer festivals, we finally brought the "We Are The Void" experience to the European club circuit.
The whole “Where Death Is Most Alive Part II" experience was amazing, and the seven weeks were filled with great shows and unforgettable moments. The idea of having a different local support band - determined by public vote - every night in mainland Europe turned out to be successful as well; we got to hear a lot of great acts and even got some tattoos courtesy of JP Mottin of El Comer Ocho (www.myspace.com/elcomerocho).
We’d like to extend our most sincere thanks to everyone that took part in the shows - the awesome support acts of Insomnium, Avatar, Marionette and Omnium Gatherum, the beloved crew of Basti, Jorge, Jukka, Anders, Matti, Mikko and Jörg, the local support bands and of course all the fans that came out to the shows to give us the time of our lives.
There have been some questions regarding the setlist. We shifted things around a bit during the course of the tour to keep some variation for ourselves and for the numerous people that attended several of the shows, but these are the tracks that at some point were played.
At The Point Of Ignition
Lost To Apathy
The Wonders At Your Feet
Shadow In Our Blood
Punish My Heaven
The Sun Fired Blanks
Terminus (Where Death Is Most Alive)
After the busiest year ever in our 21 year old existence, we're now having some rest before hitting the 70 000 tons of metal cruise in January. To conclude, here is a clip of "Misery's Crown" from the tour finale in Gothenburg (which was given a triumphant 5/5 rating in our biggest newspaper Göteborgs-Posten (http://www.darktranquillity.com/images/gp.jpg)”
