DARKANE are back in Sweden having completed their North American tour. Guitarist Christofer Malmström offered the following update:
“We’re back in Sweden from a what we believe was a very successful tour in North America together with SOILWORK, WARBRINGER and SWALLOW THE SUN. Thanks a lot to the other bands, crew, and all the fans that showed up and made us feel welcome. Playing 50 shows in 52 days was kinda tough, but we’re very happy we managed to pull it through without any bigger issues. Now we are focusing on writing new material for the next album but before that, we played a show at The Tivoli in our home town Helsingborg on Saturday April 4th, and then we have the Roskilde and Nuclear Assault festivals booked for this summer, and hopefully more will show up. Next week, [DARKANE drummer] Peter Wildoer will head out on a European tour with PESTILENCE for three weeks.
“I am also very proud to announce that I am now officially endorsed by Steve Clayton guitar picks. I have been using Clayton pics (1.26 mm) since the middle of the nineties. Since DARKANE‘s music is based on accurate playing I need a pick that feels steady and that I can count on when I hit my strings very hard. With the Clayton picks, I get a very good and reliable grip allowing me to alter between fast and rhythmic playing without having to think about what my right hand is doing.
“See you out there!”
