THE HAUNTED Prepare For This Year's Ozzfest; Wrap Up Video Shoot

June 14, 2005

THE HAUNTED are currently preparing for their appearance on this year’s Ozzfest. They will also take part in a slew of major off-dates alongside the likes of ARCH ENEMY, BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, SHADOWS FALL and IT DIES TODAY, among others. In addition, they recently completed a new video for “No Compromise” with acclaimed director Roger Johansson. Look for it to make its Headbangers Ball and Metal Asylum debut next month.

Peter Dolving (vocals) described the band’s excitement over being a part of this year’s Ozzfest lineup:

“I honestly feel a little Bart Simpson waking up alone in a mall, or a wolf realizing he for some reason is right in the middle of a sheep herd. I don’t know if that remotely illustrates the deal, but I will say this: THE HAUNTED are ready for this shit, and I hope the kids who come out to the shows are too. The last couple of months have all been about honing in further on the core of what we’re about as a band - like a Tomahawk missile closing in. This tour will crush.

“We’ve just finished a pretty boy-band video to make us ugly fuckers looking sweeter than your next-door Class A golden boy jock-meat, all to make sure that every damned household gets a sniff of the ol´riff-o-rama. All out thrash mayhem is what they asked for, and yes, that’s what we’re bringin! Oh, and you know what? Feel no shame for loving us, cause that’s just fine - we’ll bring enough hate for everyone. Over and out.”
